Wishing all my friends a Happy and Bright New Year. Continue to look up and keep on following the Star that led us all thus far… Covid19 cannot prevail in the end the Star that is Jesus the Bright and Morning Star will overcome all darkness and bring us through to both peace and light.
Do I really believe this?
Yes I do, those wise men of old, without name themselves and from unknown lands, did not have ease in their journeys and from the day when you and I, brother, sister first began to put one foot in front of the other in our following of the Lord Jesus; we have all, if truth be told known times of difficulty as well as ease, times of sadness as well as joy ~ times of loss as well as gain, times of mourning and bless the Lord times of consolation.
We have known those times of being completely drained and emptied; only to be filled with amazing love, peace and joy beyond all human telling. Such was the finding of the wise men as they gazed on the infant Christ…. they looked on a child wrapped humbly whom they found living in humble circumstances. The Divine Son from all eternity wrapped in the same mortal skin as ours born in such a time as this..
So at the beginning of 2021 let’s look up and follow the Bright and morning Star.
Lord of all hope,
Bright and Morning Star
Keep us ever faithful in our journey.
Guide us and keep us by the light of your presence,
Until we come into that Bright and Eternal Kingdom
There, sorrows forgotten like those of a mother safely
Delivered of a newborn child, may we kneel in perfect worship
At the throne of Love, Peace and Joy.
AmenJean Harcourt (3rd January 2021
