Love has come, Your Love has won.



"The war is over / Love has come / Your Love has won."
- "White Flag," a Passion 2012 song


Here, we have our 2011 Christmas card. Let us take a moment and recognize the use of the Oxford comma... Okay, moment over. Nice work, Mama Sha-nay-nay!

But this day?
My, oh my.
The war is over, the battle is won.
!!!!!!!!
We. Were. RANSOMED.

Somehow, "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" and Israel's advent has made a lot more sense this year, and I can't stop combing through the lyrics. Sometimes those 12th century Latin composers just get it right, ya know?

We have been rescued by a King.
Sing our for joy for the brave little boy who was king, but made himself nothing!


p.s. My career holds dear all facets of social media, so of course, I have watched this about six times. Have you seen this? Cool. Very, very cool. Told ya I'm a fan of Elizabeth and Zechariah...

It's a BOY!

Merry, merry Christmas, y'all!

  2. Is it weird that I am crying after watching that video? Yesterday morning I was looking out the back door and the sky was just brilliant, red and purple and blue and I was thinking of that very first Christmas. Again I started to cry, to think of what Mary must have gone through, so young, giving birth in a stable, no mid-wife or mother or any women to help. And she did it because she had faith and she knew that God was with her and her Son would change the world. Merry Christmas!
