This Christmas season has been different. It’s been unlike any other, really. I don’t have the same energy and I feel like the Grinch most of the time when it comes to being Christmas-cheery. I’m not sure why I’m not in the usual Christmas spirit…maybe because this year has been so unusual and it’s catching up to me.
So much good has come out of 2020. As I’m writing this, I’m almost in my third trimester with my fourth sweet baby. I’m anticipating the new year, especially for this birth!
We have so much to be thankful for.
That’s why, instead of writing a longer post about the season we’ve had, I’m going to copy some lyrics from a fantastic song.
My daddy gave me the CD (yes I listen to CD’s!) a year or two ago, but this year, this song really stuck out to me. And the words are beautiful. Listen to the song through the link I included, or just read and meditate on the lyrics.
Ya’ll have a Merry Christmas!
Love, The Davis Family
Citizens & Saints – “Come and Stand Amazed“ (Click for YouTube Vid.)
Come and stand amazed, you people,
See how God is reconciled!
See his plans of love accomplished,
See his gift, this newborn child,
See the mighty, weak and tender,
See the Word who now is mute,
See the Sovereign without splendor,
See the Fullness destitute.
See how humankind received Him;
See him wrapped in swaddling bands,
Who as Lord of all creation
Rules the wind by his commands.
See him lying in a manger
Without sign of reasoning;
Word of God to flesh surrendered,
He is wisdom’s crown, our King.
O Lord Jesus, God incarnate,
Who assumed this humble form,
Counsel me and let my wishes
To your perfect will conform.
Light of life, dispel my darkness,
Let your frailty strengthen me;
Let your meekness give me boldness,
Let your burden set me free;
O Emmanuel, my savior
Let your death be life for me
