The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger;
In all our trials born to be our friend.
He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger,
Behold your King! Before Him lowly bend!
Isaiah arrived from Seattle at 8:00 on Christmas Eve and we immediately sat down to dinner. The table was set with goblets,cloth napkins, and Advent candles. As we gathered, we realized there was an empty seat – we paused, then somebody said, “Oh, we set a place for Dimples.” It was a sad moment for all of us.
Russ and I are on our way to see Dimples today. Please pray for her, for us, and for the team of people involved. Having a crisis over a holiday adds an additional layer of complication since we are unable to reach some key people.
I hope your Christmas was wonderful.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
