Everyday Joy

Advent dec 17.jpg*

‘Rejoice! rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to you, O Israel.’

ancient words from the 12th century

yet we still sing it today

some things never get old, i guess

like the promise of Emmanuel


well, he HAS come!

he is here

in the heart

in the every day

in every. single. moment.

Emmanuel, God with us


he sees the pain, the struggles, and the loss

he sees the joys and the laughter

he knows each of us by heart

we never walk alone

God walks every step with us


even on the hard days

this undercurrent of joy runs strong

for no one and nothing can take away the joy he brings


rejoice! rejoice!

Emmanuel is with us!
