He came down to earth from heaven
who is God and Lord of all
May God bless you this Christmas, and may the presence of Jesus fill your hearts and lives.
"Leave me alone with God
as much as may be.
As the tide draws the waters
close in upon the shore,
make me an island, set apart,
alone with You, God,
holy to You.
Then with the turning of the tide,
prepare me to carry Your presence
to the busy world beyond,
the world that rushes in on me,
till the waters come again
and fold me back to you."
(Aidan Prayer, from the Northumbria Community)
The next new posting will be in early January, if I can think of anything worth saying. In the meantime, happy new year too!
