The Servant's Carol



"When the parents brought in the Child Jesus to do for Him what the custom of the Law required, Simeon took Him in his arms and praised God, saying:

'Sovereign Lord, as You have promised,
You now dismiss Your servant in peace.

For my eyes have seen Your salvation,
which You have prepared in the sight of all people,
a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to Your people Israel.'

The Child's father and mother marveled at what was said about Him.  Then Simeon blessed them then said to Mary, His mother: 'This Child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed.

And a sword will pierce your own soul, too.'"
Luke 2:27-35.

    1. I'm no photographer, so I REALLY love this shot up at Camp of the Woods in the Adirondacks last winter. Magnificent can't begin to describe the sunsets that decend in that neck of the woods! What a Creator we have!

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...

Linda
