On that day they will sing this song in the land of Judah:
“A strong city have we;
he sets up walls and ramparts to protect us.
Open up the gates
to let in a nation that is just,
one that keeps faith.
A nation of firm purpose you keep in peace;
in peace, for its trust in you.”
“…speak my name to
the open skies
share your secret with me
so I can see…” ~ Casey Breves, Speak My Name
Trying to prepare these little nativity peg people was my favorite part of Advent last year.
Luke 3: 6
as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah:
A voice of one crying out in the desert:
“Prepare the way of the Lord,
make straight his paths.
Every valley shall be filled
and every mountain and hill shall be made low.
The winding roads shall be made straight,
and the rough ways made smooth,
and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.”
The above highlighted word prepare has a link to music by George Skaroulis.
