The Heart of Christmas

sunrise March 23rd, 2013 014

The heart of Christmas can’t be found
In strings of lights on trees.
It doesn’t beat in Christmas sounds.
With eyes it can’t be seen.

The heart of Christmas you can’t buy
In store, or shop, or mall.
In sleigh with reindeer it can’t fly,
Nor through your chimney fall.

The heart of Christmas is our God –
Jesus – God’s heart displayed,
In form of child in manger’s sod,
There, God’s own Heart He laid.

The heart of Christmas came to take
Our broken desperate heart.
Gave in exchange His own and made
Us new – a brand new start.

The heart of Christmas, found in us –
Our God, Emmanuel.
Our Sin He bore, took to the cross,
So He in us could pictures 004
And I will give you a new heart,
and a new spirit I will put within you.
And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh
and give you a heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 36:26 (ESV)
(Heidi Viars, 2013)

About Heidi Viars

β€œIf you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.
