Just a quick revisit on the weekend’s date thing. It’ was pretty awesome that there was a baby born at 10:11 of 12-13-14. That child will always be punctual I am sure!
Speaking of children being born, here’s Away in the Manger to remind us of a little baby whose birth was also timely! I have been listening to Kim Walker-Smith’s version a lot this December. However, there are so many good renditions of this favorite. Like this and this.
7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them. Luke 2:7 (NIV)
Pay attention to the last verse, as it includes a prayer that all Christ followers will have no problem singing each day!
Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever and love me I pray
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care
And take us to heaven to live with Thee there
Sort of reminds me of these words…
Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. [James 4:8a ESV]
