Holly Ridge Happenings

The Christmas Tree

From a tree a manger was made, 0n the first Christmas, in it He laid. 

Also from a tree, a cross was made, and on it, for our sins, the price HE paid. 

I remember each year as the tree I adorn, His gift giving began the day HE was born. As I gently place each ornament of gold, In His hands, I place my heart, and my life, for Him to hold. Trusting in Him to take good care of me, I pray and I sing as I decorate the tree.

 “I am the way, the truth and the light,” said He.

Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He. I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
