Light of the World

Today is the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. Tomorrow the daylight begins to lengthen every so slowly as the earth's tilt inches its way closer to the sun. Four of my quilts include a sun.

The World:
Good Morning:Arms of Love:24/7:
Since we're on the theme of light and it's almost Christmas I'm including a tribute to the birth of Christ, who said "I am the light of the world." Light of the world, You stepped down into darkness
Opened my eyes, let me see
Beauty that made this heart adore You
Hope of my life spent with You

King of all days
Oh, so highly exalted
Glorious in heaven above
Humbly You came to the earth You created
All for love's sake became poor

And here I am to worship
Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You're my God
You're altogether lovely
Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me
(written by Tim Hughes)
