Rejoice.... Rejoice....

I sit here, silently staring at the blank screen. There are no words.

In the back of my mind is the song "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel"

It's one of my favorite Christmas Carols - that comes to mind throughout the year as well.

It is a message of hope, of joy - "Rejoice!" - yet, the music behind the lyrics is somewhat haunting and melancholy.

Israel is exiled and mourning, waiting and waiting,....yet they are reminded to rejoice.

I shall follow their example.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall ransom captive Israel
