This heart-shaped cloud caught my attention and made me stop in wonder. It moved ahead of me down the highway, carried on winds I couldn’t see. I marveled at the Divine Reminder of The Cloud of the Presence… God-With-Us… Always.

Breath of Heaven,
Bread of Heaven,
Child of the Promise,
Ruler of the Nations,
We cannot fathom
the height of your grace,
the depth of your caring,
the breadth of your compassion
for each one of us.

Your love is above us,
always tending to us
gently reminding us
that Christmas is every day
we remember
Emmanuel
God With Us.

For the all fears
we hold close,
For all the unmet expectations
we cannot voice,
For all the blessings
we count with gratitude,
We offer our worship
and our praise.

Your love is above us,
always tending to us
gently reminding us
that Christmas is every day
we remember
Emmanuel
God-With-Us.

Amen.
And Amen.
