Reaching Still Today

As humble child, God came to earth;

the offspring of a virgin birth.

His condescension shows our worth.




He looked ahead and saw our need. Yes, He saw you and I.

This God-man born at Bethlehem, His purpose was to die.

Oh, the depth and height of His love! It oft’ times makes me cry.




He is reaching still today

to those who have lost their way;

to hearts filled with deep dismay.




Pray for those so blind,

that they may soon find

Jesus, good and kind.




Souls with hope so dim

can be led to Him

and filled to the brim.

  1. Beautiful, Carol! Praise the Lord that His hand is still out-stretched and longing to bring His lost ones home.

    Have a Merry Christmas and a new year full of God’s rich blessings!


    Hi Scotti. Thank God He is still reaching after lost humanity. I hope you and your family have a beautiful Christmas and a very Happy New Year. 🙂

  2. Carol,
    Finally, I’m on vacation from teaching my home school . . . and I could catch up on your blogging! I think I had to go all the way back to your pictures of Hawaii to get up to speed. As always, I am amazed at your poetic words (lava flows like miles of brownies . . .) and your Christmas baking! Wish we were there to eat some of those goodies! Thrilled to see your church built in more ways than one!
