I'm Really Excited for Christmas

Come thou long-expected Jesus,
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel's strength and consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear Desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart.

Born Thy people to deliver,
Born a Child and yet a King.
Born to reign in us for ever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.

By Thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all-sufficient merit
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.

Andrea, maybe there will be snow while you are here. There will be for sure in the UP, I bet. They are getting snow right now.
It's beautiful and sunny today. Probably in the 70s. This weekend is supposed to be in the 50's, tho. Woohoo... Altho that means higher heat bills. Oh well. We can layer! :-)
I love you!!
