A Christmas Eve Thank You

I started this little blog in July with no idea what I was doing.  I’ve been learning as I go, and I do appreciate each and every one who has taken time to read it.  At this point, there have been 6,738 views, which amazes me.  I have met new friends and learned about the web and how it can work.  Four of my posts have been picked up and shared in other places.I am humbled.  Some of you have written about something that really helped.  That blesses me.

For all of you, my hopes for a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.  I hope you’ll stop by again soon.  I have posted a song I wrote a few years back and contributed to a local Christmas CD compilation.  The song is called, “This Christmas Eve.”  I hope you like it.

 

     This Christmas Eve  (Gary Furr BMI copyright, all rights reserved)

Band of shepherds in the night,

Without a clue what lay in store–

Heaven and earth brilliant with light,

The hope of something more.

 

This is the wonder

This is the glory

This is the mystery

That a life of flesh and blood,

Came to set us free

If we can only lift our eyes and see!

 

Wise men left their homes behind,

Seeking the Truth, with gifts they came

But you can also journey home

And find it just the same

 

This is the wonder

This is the glory

This is the mystery

That a life of flesh and blood,

Came to set us free

This the world’s desire, this Christmas Eve.

 

I lift my eyes into the night,

Without a clue what lies in store,

Will I look up and find that light,

the hope of something more?

 

This is the wonder

This is the glory

This is the mystery

This my life of flesh and blood

Longing to be free

Oh, Divine love

Like a sweet dove

Descend with heaven’s peace!

This my deepest prayer this Christmas Eve.
