There is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents. – Luke 15:10
The eyes of all look expectantly to You, and You give them their food in due season. – Psalm 145:15
A minute here,
An hour there,
Time passing everywhere,
Precious time, slow or fast,
Days and days now in the past,
Over 300, since we saw you last
Hope you’re well, stay strong and keep safe Oscar Pistorius.
This time will pass.
We are wanting to make the month of June into a Month of Hope for Oscar. Please could you send us messages of hope whether they are poems, song lyrics, a picture expressing hope, your own thoughts, anything really. We would ideally want to post at least one a day so we need 30. Your messages would be so greatly appreciated.
Thanks from the SfO team
In the bleak mid-winter, frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone.
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow, in the bleak mid-winter long ago.
What can I give Him, poor as I am? If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part; Yet what can I give Him: give my heart.
Oscar, our thoughts are with you this Christmas.
So many people care about you.
Jeff and Kath,
The symbols of Christmas
How often have we seen them, how often drawn them when we were children?
The star ~ symbolising the light that penetrates the densest darkness, the guiding star in our life
The angel ~ symbolising hope and peace
The Christmas tree ~ evergreen, symbolising eternal life
The Christmas gift ~ symbolising love and care for one another
The New-born Child who brings all that to all mankind, to every man, woman and child, to you and me
I wish you a blessed Christmas, a day of peace and true Christmas joy.
A Christmas blessing from afar to you.
Stockholm December 2016
