Greetings Friends:
 
Happy New Year to all!  Today is the “last” day of the Christmas season as Epiphany begins tomorrow, January 6. Below is a poem I actually came across many years ago.  I pray that all of us will be blessed. 

 
PLEASE READ: Matthew 2:9-11
“After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh.”

My Christmas Wish (written by Edward Bos):
 

I’ve wished a very special wish for you this Christmas-tide;

it reaches far beyond today, `tis high and deep, and wide.

I wish for you the angels’ song that tells of hope and love;

I wish the radiance of the Star to guide your thoughts above.

I wish for you the sturdy faith that led the Wise Men three

Through cold of night, o’er desert drear, the Holy Child to see.

I wish for you a humble heart, with purpose strong and true

The blessing of the Christ, our Lord this is my wish for you.

 
May God bless each of you everyday in 2022!  May the gift of Jesus the Christ received at Christmas, continue to journey with each of you and may you feel His ever aiding presence!

Shalom,

Pastor Jim
