What do you? 

Greeting from Masterpieces of The Master (Click on the image to read)

Said the night wind to the little lamb, do you see what I see?
Amidst the hustle and bustle of Christmas, the frantic buying, the endless queues – do you see what I see?

          Jesus standing at the door of your heart.

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy, do you hear what I hear?
Have I forgotten someone on my list, can I accommodate everyone, have I bought enough food? – do you hear what I hear?

          His gentle tapping on that same door.

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king, do you know what I know? Must remember to put up the Christmas Tree, Oh no, I don’t have enough decorations! I need to dutifully follow the Cake Book recipe; no-one will ever find out – do you know what I know?

          That He longs to be invited in.

Christmas (Christ mas) is about Him, the reason for His birth and the magnificent expression of a loving God.  Yet, He is often ignored and not invited to His celebration.

          What will YOU hear this Christmas?

He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. But to those that would receive Him and believe in His name, He gives them the power to become God’s children. (St John Chapter 1: 10-12 paraphrased).

Do you hear what I hear?
