What Child Is This?

Usually you'll find posts about my grandbabies here each Wednesday. They are so very special to me! I love them so much ~ more than I ever thought possible. But there's a babe who I love even more.
I thought I'd do a little post about Him instead.
Sweet baby Jesus.

What Child is this who, laid to rest
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?
This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing;
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

"For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called
Wonderful, Counsellor,
The mighty God, The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace."
Isaiah 9:6

This, this is Christ the king!

Merry CHRISTmas!
Happy CHRISTmas!
CHRISTmas Greetings!

Such a sweet post, Marie.
Your 1983 ornaments are SO precious. I have a few myself. Some I made, some the kiddos made. : )
And I got such a kick out of the creative "boots" you and Mandy came up with. I still can't get over how much snow you got there. I hope you're staying dry and warm.
Merry CHRISTmas, Marie.
