"Your body is the first thing any child of man ever wanted. Therefore dispose yourself to be loved, to be wanted, to be available. Be there for them with a vengeance. Be a gracious, bending woman. Incline your ear, your heart, your hands to them.... To be a Mother is to be the sacrament - the effective symbol - of place. Mothers do not make homes, they are our home." from Bed and Board, Robert Farrar Capon

Heaven Came to Earth



Heaven Came to Earth
by Second Chapter of Acts

Heaven came to earth in a small package,
for a child was born, a gift to men.
Yes, the living light came to the darkness,
Wore the harness of mankind.

Laid His body down to be sin for us,
Gave His earthly crown so we could be kings.
Yes, He came to break the yoke of darkness
That would harness all mankind.

This morning star of love still shines, and shines.
We buried Him within our sin but He rose again.
Gave His heart away so we could find it,
Changed our night to day, so we'd live in light,
Tore the veil between the light and darkness,
Broke the harness of mankind.

This morning star of love still shines, and shines.
We buried Him within our sin but He rose again.
Let our hearts rejoice in Christ our Savior,
Let us come before His throne with grace.
Let us pray for peace so we'll break the darkness,
Melt the hardness of mankind.
