Ash and Bo did a great job of their lines and sang enthusiastically, as did all of the other children. The huge concerted efforts of parents, teachers, aids and the children themselves, made for a wonderful performance. I'm not sure the central message of Christmas was actually to the fore, unless it really is 'friendship, families, and giving', as wonderful as those things are. However, the extreme glory of the Lord Jesus Christ, co-eternal with the Father and the Holy Ghost, decending to our low estate to mercifully redeem implacable enemies from the pit they willingly dug and jumped right into... God, so often acused of winding up creation and failing to intervene in history, plunged into this fallen world, in the Person of his only Son, to redeem us in the most extraordinary way - by living perfectly under the very law he authored, so that when he dies on Calvary's cross, he can swap his perfect life for our deserved judgement. That's worth getting excited about, and even singing about:
Sing, choirs of angels, Sing in exaltation,We should know the scan result on Friday. Hopefully P will yet go to school this week, even though today was quite exhausting.
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above.
Glory to God in the highest.
Oh come let us adore him,
Christ the Lord!
