Merry Noel

by Sherry Riter in Holiday

Noel

I have a sculptured piece on my tree and it spells out in wood textured letters the word “Noel.” According to the the dictionary, “Noel” is another word for “Christmas.” Every time I read or hear that word, I think of that ever popular Christmas carol…

    The first noel, the angels did say
    Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay
    In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
    On a cold winter’s night that was so deep
    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
    Born is the King of Israel

    They looked up and saw a star
    Shining in the the East, beyond them far
    And to the earth it gave great light
    And so it continued both day and night
    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
    Born is the King of Israel

    And by the light of that same star
    Three wise men came from country far
    To seek for a King was their intent
    And to follow the star wherever it went
    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
    Born is the King of Israel

    This star drew night to the northwest
    Over Bethlehem it took its rest
    And there it did both stop and stay
    Right over the place where Jesus lay
    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
    Born is the King of Israel

    Then entered in those wise men three
    Full reverently upon their knee
    And offered there in his presence
    Their gold, and myrrh, and frankincense
    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
    Born is the King of Israel

Christ in a manger

I will be spending the afternoon and evening with my family celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, our love for Him and each other.

I’m also thinking about you and loving you for your wonderfulness during the past year.

I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas.
