"Our Star of Bethlehem" - Merry Christmas To All ~

Our Star of Bethlehem

A prophet spoke of wonders, and a star that would be seen. 
Two days, a night appear as one, its light to be pristine. 

Behold it was as Samuel said, a new Star did appear,
Announcing hence to all the world, our Lord and Savior dear,

As Lord of lords and King of kings, He created Heaven and Star
So, was it not His selfsame Light that shined down from a far?

The Star that guided Shepherds, and Wisemen seeking Him, 
Continues as the Light of Christ. "Our Star of Bethlehem". 

May that sweet light now lead us on, to rescue, love and lift. 
And as we do we may receive, the Savior's Christmas Gift. 
 by Roger L. Williams ( my dear husband)

Numbers 24:17; Matthew 2: 1-2; Helaman 14:2-6; Colossians 1:16, D&C 93:1-4

"What a glorious and wonderful season of the year this is. Our hearts change. Our attitudes change. Our way of thinking changes. There is a little more forgiveness in us. A little more kindness. A little more love. A little more patience. A little more of understanding at the Christmas season of the year. What a glorious thing it is that at least once in twelve months we can become a little better than we have been during the remainer of the year. Thanks be to God for the gift of His son and thanks be to His Son for the gift of His life. How grateful we are at this Christmas Season." 
 by Gordon B. Hinckley
