The Work of Christmas



The Work of Christmas

When the song of the Angel  is stilled,
When the Star in the sky is gone,
When the Kings and princes are home,
When the Shepherds are back with their flock,

The work of Christmas begins:

To Find  the lost - To Heal  the broken - To Feed  the hungry -
To Release the prisoner - To Rebuild the nations -
To Bring Peace among brothers and sisters -
To make music in the Heart.

Merry Christmas

May hope, joy, peace and love be yours in abundance all your days.

Hi Bonnie.. am catching up after spending yesterday eating too much and lazing about on the sofa! What a beautiful card this is... and I also adore the snowflake one in your previous post.
I hope you had a beautiful Christmas day and my best wishes for 2013.
