§ What is Pro-Life Unity?

To achieve Pro-Life Unity we will establish standards that we all agree upon, and efforts that we all regularly participate in. By working together we can challenge the culture of death and the apathy which is pervasive in our society.

Luke 2:7 (Pt. 4)  Thought/Prayer:  “Here We Come a’Caroling”.  Topics:  2 at end.

“And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.”  (AKJV)  Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)

Matthew 19:14 “But Jesus said, “Allow the little children, and don’t forbid them to come to me; for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to ones like these.”  (WEB) 

This old carol, written perhaps about 1850 and in public domain has to do with children!  We know, of course, that the Baby Jesus grew to become a child and played with other children.  So we will consider the value of children as shown in this song.  They are named twice! 

Here we Come a-Caroling

Here we come a-caroling
Among the leaves so green;
Here we come a-wand’ring
So fair to be seen.

Love and joy come to you,
And to you glad Christmas too;
And God bless you and
Send you a happy New year,
And God send you a happy new year.

We are not daily beggars
That beg from door to door;
But we are neighbors’ children,
Whom you have seen before.

Love and joy come to you,
And to you glad Christmas too;
And God bless you and
Send you a happy New year,
And God send you a happy new year.

God bless the master of this house,
Likewise the mistress, too,
And all the little children,
That round the table go.

Love and joy come to you,
And to you glad Christmas too;
And God bless you and
Send you a happy New year,
And God send you a happy new year.

The children actually speak to the adults in the house when they open the door.  They explain that they are not beggars, but neighbors! 

Different lyrics for this song are “Here we come a wassailing,” wassail being a hot drink with fruit and maybe ale.  Either way, the children are knocking on the door of a neighbor and hoping for a warm drink.

The children are happy.  We don’t know if they have been in the homes before, but maybe, because there is a blessing associated here.  The blessing is for the “master” (husband) of the house and the “mistress,” (wife) and all “the little children that round the table go.”  There they are again!  The children!

The children are part of the entire scene and are obviously important here because they are singled out . . . seemingly as special.  Just like Jesus.  He thought children were special, and He had been a child.

Well, this is just a little song that in its own way, honors children.  So, if the story in this song were occurring today, would we not be verifying that children are important and special, even to being the central characters in such a little song? 

Lord, help us to realize this and to counsel those who are facing unplanned children in their families to realize the value of them.  May we honor them in many ways, in addition to their inclusion in festive times.  May we honor them, and may they live to be born, to so experience the joy of childhood and their participation in neighborhood events.

Topics:  Praise God for the adults who include children in celebration.  Pray that babies in the womb will be birthed to grow and be joyous in special times of happiness.
