all i want . . .

Todd and I spent yesterday getting our ministry's holiday newsletter printed and out for mailing. I love working on our newsletter ... we're so busy! LOL! If anyone's interested, here's the link:

It takes a second to load, but it's an eight page pdf, so that's probably why.

Today, after enjoying the staff Christmas party at the Madison Baptist Association, we got all the newsletters off and in the mail. Now all I've got left is a little shopping, some baking and some wrapping. In the event I don't get back on here before Christmas (which is really hard to imagine), I wish you all a truly Merry Christmas, filled with the light of Christ and the peace that passes all understanding.

Joy to the world! the LORD is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart, prepare Him room,
And heav'n and nature sing,
And heav'n and nature sing,
And heav'n, and heav'n and nature sing.

Joy to the earth! the Savior reigns;
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He come to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found,
Far as, far as the curse is found.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, and wonders of His love.

Third Day - Joy to the World
