Joyful All the Nations Together Sing ...

"Then spoke Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follows me [opens his heart to me]  shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."  ~John 8:12

"Joyful All the Nations Together Sing:  Peace & Love on Earth"

I am but a simple, humble King.
Yet, unto me glorious verses
Do the Herald Angels sing.
My wealth is not silver,
Nor is it treasured gold ...
In fact, it is nothing
Tangible that one can hold.
My treasure is instead
A gift of 'knowing'
Our Creator's True Peace
And Unconditional Love.

On this joyful night,
As Angels together do heralds sing,
A jubilant symphony of harmony
In remembrance of me,
Their Newborn King ...
Born one special night,
Long ago, in a tiny manger,
Under a blazing star,
In Bethlehem,
Prince of Peace & Light ... 
Know that I am a legacy of Hope,
Gifted from God above,
To reach forth and fill this wanting Earth
With His Eternal Peace and Love ...

[The Christmas story is just a beginning;
For Jesus's legacy of Hope lives on
In our world to this day when we who hear 
'The Christmas Eve Chorus' ring 
Open our hearts to receive His Light anew.
Then we so greatly blessed, in turn,
Venture forth, with joyful hearts,
And unto a weary world His gift impart.
Hand-in-hand & Heart-to-heart,
Our united Lights will brightly shine:
A reflection of the Supreme Presence Divine.
That together, in our own simple way,
We may simply illuminate our shared world
By spreading the flame of God's Eternal Peace
And Unconditional Love burning brightly in our hearts.]

United in voice, Let all the Earth together REJOICE!
Peace on Earth and Goodwill to all Mankind.

A beautiful Christmas Song:  "Wake Up the World", By JJ Heller

Merry Christmas one and ALL!!
 ...  "Let all the Earth Rejoice," indeed!!  Open your hearts and receive the Light of our Creator this Christmas Eve and Day.  Then go forth and renew the face of a weary Earth with His Peace and Eternal Love.  God's Blessings be with all who happen to pass this way.   May you strive keep the 'Light of Christmas' alive in your hearts throughout the New Year, 2012.


P.S.  I have to share that so many of my non-Christian friends have been so thoughtful in asking about what Christmas is, what it means to me, personally, and then wishing me a heartfelt "Merry Christmas" in return.  The sincerity, effort and LOVE of these friends is truly heartfelt.  It makes me SMILE =) from ear-to-ear and from the heart ♥ ... It gives me the greatest HOPE for this world that we all share.
