A lovely carol for this time of year with meaningful words.
In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.
Our God, heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign.
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.
Enough for Him, Whom cherubim, worship night and day,
Breastful of milk, and a mangerful of hay;
Enough for Him, Whom angels fall before,
The ox and ass and camel which adore.
Angels and archangels may have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim thronged the air;
But His mother only, in her maiden bliss,
Worshipped the beloved with a kiss.
What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart.
Beautiful words! Many of us are experiencing not only a bleak spell of weather with plenty of snow/ice on the ground and a cold north easterly but also, a bleak time of year. So many trials and tribulations have affected those of us in the team with regard to personal situations due to unfortunately circumstances, often beyond our own control. And yet, there is hope! It is especially at this time of year that we want to look around us to find that even though our own situation may be dire to us, there are always those who are less fortunate who really need our love and support. This is why our BBEST team works so well. We are here to love, support each other through thick and thin. Comfort in times of stress and rejoice in times of jubilation.
We need to take a few minutes from our busy schedules to remember what we are celebrating at this time of year and reflect on our own lives.
I am not especially a religious person but do feel it is so important to stop every now and again to give thanks for what I have and for the wonderful friendship I have found thanks to the internet and a wonderful group of caring folk who make up the BBEST team.
Almost everyone loves the first snow. It is so quiet and the air is
clean and the sky is bright. On this particular night a
young boy sees a star that he is sure is the Christmas star.
