Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Got the message

I just need to post this before we all go into christmas thinking
it's about family, lot's of candles, presents, wine and romantise the whole thing.
CHRISTmas is still about CHrist,
The Son of God
Going to this earth,
leaving His Heavenly, Glorious place close to His Father
Stepping into this wicked world,
To save me and you
Believing that,
will cause you to live in His Light
To deny Him
will cause you to feel even more lonely every christmas,
trying to get some of that light with a christmas tree, candles and all that stuff.
Jesus came
and He will come back...
THat is our hope

If I could look beyond your face

If I could look beyond your face
And photograph your hidden place
Would I find you smiling in the picture

I don’t know what you want
Because you don’t know,
So what’s the point of asking

You’re almost happy
Almost content
But your head hurts

Far too many ways to go
We learn so much but never know
Where to look
Or when we should stop looking

I can love the whole of you.
The poetry I stole from you
And hide inside my stomach

You’re almost happy
Almost content
But your head hurts

It’s easy to get lost in you
And fall asleep inside of you
I want to return to you
A reason to be here
A reason to be here

K's Choice - Almost Happy

The song is not new, but I just bought the cd and as I was listening to this song, the lyrics struck me. Especially the first three lines,
If you know that you're really crying inside, why would you like to laugh?
If you know you're really exited inside, why would you say "it's oké"
If you never thought you needed to cry, maybe your innermost has fallen asleep.

With other words
I'm asking you, as I was asking myself while listening to the lyrics:

If I could photograph my hidden place
Would I find myself smiling in the
picture ?

I know I can fool myself and lot's of you.
God sees right through me, and If He'd found me crying in that picture, would I run to Him or would I shut myself; fall asleep inside of me...

God made me to be real, to be all He created me to be.
