light of the world...

Light of the world
You stepped down into darkness.

Opened my eyes, let me see.
Beauty that made this heart adore You
Hope of a life spent with You

King of all days
oh, so highly exalted
Glorious in heaven above
Humbly You came 
To the earth You created
All for love's sake became poor

Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that You're my God
You're altogether lovely
All together worthy,
All together wonderful to me

appropriate lyrics from one of my favorite worship songs

I have gotten so many ideas & so much inspiration from your blog this year. Your winter white Christmas decor is beautiful. I hope you & your precious family had a wonderful holiday & wish your new year to bring nothing but happiness & prosperity.

Thank you, Rene, for reminding us of the real meaning of this holiday and of our lives. You sweetly share your home, your family, your art and your love with everyone around you, and I am so glad to have found you through this medium. Best wishes, love, and good health follow you and yours.

Adrienne said...

One of my favorite worship songs, too. Just stopping by to catch up a bit and to give belated wishes. The wishes are the same. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Wishing you a New Year filled with blessings beyond imagination.

Kathie Truitt said...

I love that song, too. Almost as much as I love your house. Really, I want to just drive my truck across the country, show up in your driveway and sit on your front porch. Is that wierd? I mean, you wouldn't have me arrested or anything if I did that, would you?

Hope Filled Living said...

Oh my gosh, Rene....I love the photo of your house at the bottom of this post...I did one like that of our house a couple of years ago. Also, love that worship song. It used to be one of my favorites at my old church. I pray that you had a blessed holiday.
Can you please message me with your mailing address as I had promised everyone who posted for my holiday traditions a special something.
