Merry Christmas, dear friends!
2 The people who walk in darkness
will see a great light.
For those who live in a land of deep darkness,
a light will shine.
3 You will enlarge the nation of Israel,
and its people will rejoice.
They will rejoice before you
as people rejoice at the harvest
and like warriors dividing the plunder.
4 For you will break the yoke of their slavery
and lift the heavy burden from their shoulders.
You will break the oppressor’s rod,
just as you did when you destroyed the army of Midian.
5 The boots of the warrior
and the uniforms bloodstained by war
will all be burned.
They will be fuel for the fire.
6 For a child is born to us,
a son is given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders.
And he will be called:
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 His government and its peace
will never end.
He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David
for all eternity. Isaiah 9:2-7
Rejoice! A savior has been born to you!
We are thankful for you and your parternship with us in our life and ministry! May you experience the wonder of this holiday season, not in the gifts and twinkling lights, but in the awe and wonder of this child who was born for us! From our family to yours, we wish all of you a wonderfully Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Serving with joy~~
Carrie, for all the Dresslers
