Advent 13

Being a dad

 

 

 

   

Christmas time holds many happy memories. It is a time when I think of family and particularly my Dad. Now that I am a father, I see both sides of life at Christmas! Through it all, I often think of Joseph and everything he had to deal with all those years ago. The words to 'Joseph's Song' by Michael Card help to express at least some of those thoughts and feelings.

 

How could it be this baby in my arms

Sleeping now, so peacefully

The Son of God, the angel said

How could it be?

 

Lord, I know He's not my own

Not of my flesh, not of my bone

Still Father let this baby be

The son of my love

 

Father show me where I fit into this plan of yours

How can a man be father to the Son of God

Lord for all my life I've been a simple carpenter

How can I raise a king, how can I raise a king?

 

He looks so small, His face and hands so fair

And when He cries the sun just seems to disappear

But when He laughs it shines again

How could it be?

 

Father show me where I fit into this plan of yours

How can a man be father to the Son of God

Lord for all my life I've been a simple carpenter

How can I raise a king, how can I raise a king?
