Christ As Cornerstone

Today is, of course, Christmas Eve.  As such Happy Christmas Eve to everyone from Aloha Promises Forever to each and everyone kind enough to spend a little time reading this blog of sorts.  It’s much appreciated.

Christ As Cornerstone
by Michael Romani

Spending time this year's Christmas Eve
Reflecting mostly on those things I believe
There in the glint of the tree's lights
I find the open secret of this night

As long as you have Christ as cornerstone
You are never really truly ever alone
As long as you have Christ as cornerstone
You are and will always be at home

The twinkle lights and tinsel bring the shine
To this fir Christmas Tree of fragrant pine
Outside the window, snow is falling on the ground
Inside carols and jingle bells are the sound

Reflecting on how we as Christians have our place
Replanted in Eden, we have our purpose to embrace
No longer windblown dust, but in life spent eternal
Turning our eyes and hearts to Heaven over the infernal

This Earth we live on in our time has its sting
As the Adversary chases our souls like puppets on a string
But when we find our hearts to our forever rightful place
We turn around to find God's love beaming in our face

Firm ground taken in a bountiful, beautiful kingdom
God walked among us when He came to save all not just some
Until we realize this, we are strangers passing on through
Taking on the garments of salvation freely given me and you

Feeling like strangers sometimes living lives in exile
Until Christmas Eve rolls around as we remember why we smile
This gives our lives its profound sense of true freedom
As we take our rightful places in our Father's kingdom

We are children of the eternal, grafted onto the true vine
God's gift shared like the greatest treasure we might mine
Picking ourselves up after we are battered by life's storm
We raise upright into the glory of the Son, becoming cruciformed
