Light of the world…..


 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was made nothing that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men: and the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness to give testimony of the light, that all men might believe through him. He was not the light, but was to give testimony of the light. That was the true light which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, to them He gave great power to become the sons of God: to them that believe in His name: who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

    • Noreen, so good to hear from you! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas…and will continue to do so during these holy days. How lovely that you had that painting of the Child Jesus in your dining room. Do you know what happened to it? I grew up with a painting my dad had done of St. Therese, hanging in the stairwell of our home. I must have run up and down past it thousands of times while growing up, but I never really knew who she was…just a pretty nun with roses.

      I never dreamed then all that she would come to mean to me in my twenties…and on. I asked for that painting years later, but sadly, my parents had given it away. My dad then surprised me with a new one, which he copied from a bookcover. That one hangs in my stairwell 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Noreen!

      • Hi Patricia, sadly I do not know what happened to it. It’s possible my brother has it stored somewhere in his basement. Or it was given away. Seeing it on your blog brought a smile to my face. So thank you!
