♥♥ Happy Birthday Jesus ♥♥

Dear God,

Happy Birthday to Your Son, Jesus. We rejoice as we all remember this very special day and keep it in our hearts forever. Thank You for loving us, Lord.

We can never repay You for Your Gift, but only live our lives according to Your plans and purposes in us. We offer our lives to You, and make it our gift to You as well. May we become Your willing servants in this world we live in, as we keep in mind that we have a reward waiting for us in Heaven. Thank You, Father, for this wonderful Gift You bring.


The Gift was wrapped in swaddling clothes
And in a manger laid,
A helpless baby lying there
The love of God portrayed.
The world was dark and quiet, but
The angels couldn’t keep
Their silence any longer as
They watched the nation sleep –
They broke the sky with glory light,
Their praises rang out clear,
They told the watchful shepherds ‘Look
The Gift of God is here.
You’ll find Him in a manger and
One day He’ll grow to be
The Saviour you’ve been waiting for –
The Lord and Christ is He!’

Condensed from a poem by Marion Caragounis

May everything that Jesus is, and everything that He gives,
bless you this Christmas and always.

We always thank God for all of you,
mentioning you in our prayers.
1 Thessalonians 1:2
