What CHILD+ is This?

...Whom+ angels greet with anthems sweet...
.


Advent Meditation #3
2010


How do we "greet" Our LORD and SAVIOR every day?
.
Do we, with GREAT joy, lift our faces up to HIM+ as we arise?
.
Do we, with glorious anticipation of what HE+ will accomplish in our hearts, meet HIM+ in the morning?
.
Do we, with hearts over-flowing with thanksgiving, bow before HIM+ in worship, as HE+ gives us our very breath, thought, energy, and enabling grace to work in HIS+ camp with every passing moment of this day?
.
Are our hearts filled with anthems sweet as we pick up our cross and die daily to our Self... so that HE+ will rule and REIGN in our lives?
.
O Gracious and Life-Giving FATHER,

We humble ourselves in repentance, knowing we have not greeted Thy HOLY CHILD+ JESUS as we daily rise, in the same fullness of thanksgiving and joy that the angels greeted HIM+ .

.

O THOU, Who provided us a way to LIFE+ itself, forgive our earth-centered hearts. Move them, O LORD, to be focused on HEAVENLY things, constant in season and out, with THEE and Thy HOLY SON+, JESUS CHRIST our LORD.

.

Amen.

Whose child are you?
