Emmanuel

Ruthie Mae was baptized last Sunday. We rejoiced in God's promises to our children and welcomed her into the Covenant community.

Below are the truths we believe about ourselves, our children and our God's ability to change it all.

It's Christmas night and I'm lying in bed trying to recover from a strange cough. Dan and the boys went to Seattle for Christmas dinner with his mom and family, but us gals stayed behind. I am feeling lonely, but am comforted by this beautiful song written by my brother in law.

{Emmanuel Part 1, written by my dear brother in law Nathan Partain
Listen to the song HERE}


He comes to be the Word that all words are judged by.

He comes to be the Light that all lights are seen by.
He comes to be the Blood that all debts are paid by.
He comes to be the Word that all words are judged by.


Emmanuel

He comes to bring some rest to the heavy laden.

He comes to gut the one who abused his children.
He comes to burn all memories of Satan.
He comes to bring some rest to the heavy laden.


Emmanuel

We beheld him, we have seen God’s face.

We have touched him, God with us remained.
We received him, we believed
In his name,
In his name,
In his name.


He comes to lift our heads to proclaim his witness,

He comes to dwell in us to reflect his radiance,
He comes to send us out, his incarnate presence,
He comes to lift our heads to proclaim his witness.


Emmanuel

When he comes again then we will be always with him.

What an amazing story-God becoming man to save his beloved and make all things right. I have so much to be thankful for, but above all, I am thankful for my Emmanuel. God is with us!!
