Birth of a Savior

By Mark Joseph Keller

Unto you this day
In the town of Bethlehem
The Savior has been born
Son of the One True Great I AM
Glory to God in the Highest
Peace. Goodwill towards man.
Come and see His humble servant
And feel His unpierced hands
They shall call Him Emmanuel
The Sins of man He’ll take away
God’s prophecies are fulfilled
For the Savior is a babe
From the womb of a virgin
She found favor in God’s eyes
She conceived by the Holy Ghost
He’s the Way, the Truth, the Life
In the distance was a stable
There was nowhere else to stay
God’s servants they were humble
They found a place for him to lay
She laid him in a manger
On a bed they made from hay
Wrapped Him in swaddling clothes
Then she pondered as they prayed
In the fields were some shepherds
Just their flocks and them alone
As the angel came upon them
All around God’s glory shone
A sign has come to you
He is God’s Holy Chosen One
They went to give their finest gifts
To thank the Father for His Son

Psalm 19 – A Meditation



Psalm 19

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
    It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
    like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens
    and makes its circuit to the other;
    nothing is deprived of its warmth.

The law of the Lord is perfect,
    refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
    making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right,
    giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
    giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is pure,
    enduring forever.
The decrees of the Lord are firm,
    and all of them are righteous.

10 They are more precious than gold,
    than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
    than honey from the honeycomb.
11 By them your servant is warned;
    in keeping them there is great reward.
12 But who can discern their own errors?
    Forgive my hidden faults.
13 Keep your servant also from willful sins;
    may they not rule over me.
Then I will be blameless,
    innocent of great transgression.

14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
    be pleasing in your sight,
    Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

A Special Grace – 2 Years Later

Two years ago, on November 11, 2017, my husband of 36 years went home to be with the Lord. He was a gentle man, the kindest man I have ever known. Bobby, you made it. I look forward to seeing you again. I will never forget you, my friend.

A Special Grace

Oh, the complexities of grief
I lament, I cry deep tears of sorrow
Yet, I hope
and have faith for an eternal tomorrow
I am sad, my head is hung down
Yet, I laugh,
And share joy all around
Yes, I can grieve and still have faith
Yes, I do grieve,
For I have been given
A Special Grace
A special grace which dries my tears
When I cry aloud
A special grace which seals my heart
That lets me know we are not apart
A Special Grace
Given to me from above
A Special Grace
That lets me know
That I am loved.
