My Christmas Message, from "I am The Way, The Truth, and the Life" editorial; An addendum.
In closing, a short story if I may? The story of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. A writer and a poet born 1807, died 1882. It was during the American Civil War, Longfellow's wife was burned to death accidentally from a candle that fell and caused her gown to go up in flames. Henry attempted to smother her burning gown with his own body, his attempts were unsuccessful and she passed a day or two later, Henry was so burned that he was too sick to even attend her funeral. Not long after (November 1863), Henry's son who was away at war fighting on the Union side was shot through in chest, Henry went to Washington and brought his son home to Cambridge, MA., where he desperately tried to heal his son. Henry fell into a grim state and on Christmas Day 1863 he wrote a poem titled Christmas Bells. A couple of stanzas from this poem stood out to me this year as Christmas 2020 is but 4 days away.
“I heard the bells on Christmas day;
their old familiar carols play,
and wild and sweet the words repeat,
of peace on earth, good will toward men.
And in despair, I hang my head;
There is no peace on earth, I said;
For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of Peace on Earth Goodwill To Men!
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The wrong shall fail
The right prevail,
With Peace on Earth, Good will to men.
In 1872 this poem was penned to music and made into the song we all know as:
I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day.
It is stanzas 5 and 6 that remind me of the upheaval in America that we are about to face, stanza 5 may reveal how we feel, and 6 is tells of the hope we should have in our hearts for the coming victory in Jesus Christ. From tragedy to victory through faith in Jesus.
I and my wife, Linda wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Prayer Filled and Blessed New Year. Whatever happens, know that God Loves You...
