The First Noel

 "The First Noel"

 The first Noel the angel did say, was to certain poor shepherd in fields as they lay;
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep, on a cold winter's night that was so deep.
Noel, noel, noel, noel, born is the King of Israel.
They looked up and saw a start shining in the east beyond them far;
And to the earth it gave great light, and so it continued both day and night. 
 And by the light of that same star, three wise men came from country far;
To seek for a king was their intent, And to follow the star wherever it went.
 This star drew night to the north-west; O'er Bethlehem it took its rest;
And there it did both stop and stay, right over the place where Jesus lay.
Then entered in those wise men three, full reverently upon their knee,
And offered there in His presence, their gold, and myrrh, and frankincense.  
Then let us all with one accord sing praises to our heavenly Lord,
That hath made heav'n and earth of naught, and with His blood mankind hath bought. 

 Noel, noel, noel, noel, born is the King of Israel.
 Merry Christmas friends!
This morning our church had their Christmas cantata which was so wonderful-I wish you all could have heard it. I videotaped a couple of songs (but the videos are a little shaky due to the fact my arm was getting tired) and plan to upload them soon. The songs may be posted on youtube, so I'm going to wait and upload them from there if they are.
I hope you all have a joy filled week as we celebrate Christmas. In all the business and excitement of this holiday, let's not forget why we celebrate Christmas-because of Jesus Christ. As the song says, He was born to die that man might live, came to earth new life to give. And anyone can have that new life if they will believe on Jesus that he died on the cross for your sins, and was raised again the third day. 
John 3:16  
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Jesus is the reason for the season! 
Much love and Christmas blessings in the Lord,
Ashley
