Little did Matt & Lucy know when they agreed to help out with this year’s Christmas pageant that the director would give them each a different script and leave them to work out their differences… “Confounded Christmas …read more
As well as a bed
We need an inner space where stillness lives.
As well as a roof
We need the shelter loving gives.
Beneath my skin
I’m flesh and bone;
There’s more to me than you can see.
Life is for living now;
Not moaning or groaning,
Life is for living now ! (WOW)
I’m glad I’m alive, I’m glad that I see
There’s never been anyone quite like me.
I am a lovable person,
One of the children of God.
I shall enjoy being myself
Even though some think I’m odd.
When I dream I see the grumpy people smile
And the crying people wipe away their tears.
Everything is changing
Like the butterflies
Grow from eggs so tiny
To their adult size.
1. Let’s play at being ice,
As cold as frost and snow,
Bringing sleeping time
When life can grow.
1. I would like to be like Jesus,
Gentle, loving, strong and true.
I would like to be like Jesus
And see God in me and you.
1. If I scramble up a hill,
If I climb into a tree,
If I look out from a cliff,
I can see and see and see.
1. Christmas is a time for children,
Time for presents, fun and play.
Christmas is a time for children,
Let’s all be children on this Christmas Day.
1. Let’s live nativity;
let the manger shape our minds,
the baby touch our hearts,
the mother bless our flesh.
When I pretend that I’m a seed,
A seed lying in the soil,
The seed and I are one.
The sheep need the grass,
The grass needs the earth,
Everything needs each other.
Let’s all imagine we are like a bird
Flying in the bright, blue sky,
Singing our best songs sweetly as we can,
Seeing all of life with a clear bird’s eye.
God loves everyone the same,
and knows every girl and boy by name.
God made every girl and boy
to sing and dance and play with joy,
sing and dance and play with joy.
The presence of God unfolds in minds
Exploring mystery’s haze.
Yes, God is found within the minds
That search for wisdom’s ways.
