Love has come

Column Post by Lisa Easterling

In a little town in the quiet of night
An animal stall housed a holy sight
Silence, then a cry heard ’round the earth
Hell slammed shut by a baby’s birth
God reached down to the king and the waif
Love has come, and we are safe


Merry Christmas, from all of us here at Write Where It Hurts. You are dearly loved, today and always. We wish you God’s most beautiful blessings as we celebrate our Savior’s birth and look ahead in His hope to a new year bright with promise.
