The snow was real and it was very cold. Fortunately, Elena was a willing participant and we captured the right picture very
quickly. Thanks to the Bjurlins for the use of their tree.
The heart represents Elena giving her heart to Jesus. The words were drawn from a Christmas song that we had sung with
our choir. Dick and Mel Tunney wrote these words:
Let us sing of God's great love in a manager lay,
Precious gift from God's own heart, born on Christmas day,
Born on Christmas day.
Angels sang of God's great love, Shepherds bowed their knee,
As they worshiped heaven's child, Christ the newborn king,
Christ the newborn king.
Prophets had fortold it, the Father's wondrous plan,
Jesus, our Messiah, God's great love to man.
Aleluia, Alelu Aleluia
Aleluia, Alelu, We will praise you, LORD, Aleluia
Let us sing of God's great love, all our earthly days,
And give Him praise He's worthy of, now and for always
Now and for always.
