Sitting outside enjoying the company of family and friends on this beautiful day! Merry CHRISTmas!! Blessings & Love to you all!!🥰
Sitting at the kitchen window peeling eggs for deviled eggs. I am really enjoying the peaceful view and observing the occasional shadow of a large bird passing overhead. Yesterday, I glanced out this same window and observed a fox running full kilter past the window and then he was gone!
I speak peace and joy over you dear friends & family as you prepare for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Remember the reason for the season – celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. HE is our PEACE…our JOY…our HOPE…our LOVE!!
Don’t let the “busyness” of the day draw your focus away from Him. Breathe deep and KNOW that He is beside you, behind you, before you, and within you. REST in that assurance, dear friends!! I love you…but HE loves you even more!! CELEBRATE JESUS!! ❤️💥💥❤️
Today is the first Sunday of Advent.
Advent is the period of four Sundays and weeks before Christmas (or sometimes from the 1st December to Christmas Day!). Advent means ‘Coming’ in Latin. This is the coming of Jesus into the world. Christians use the four Sundays and weeks of Advent to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas.
In the morning, children will be awakening with breathless anticipation of what presents will be discovered.
Lord, as we awaken each morning of every day…may we arise with breathless anticipation of what Your presence will bring!!
What joy to know that each day is a time of discovering more and more about You!!
Merry CHRISTmas, Lord Jesus!! I celebrate YOU!!
You are unique! You are beautiful! Let your light shine! …and help guide others into the Love of Christ!!
Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. ~Matthew 5:16
May we reflect the Light of Christ today and every day! Mary carried the physical Jesus and gave Him birth into the world. We carry the spiritual Jesus -Christ in us, the hope of glory. ~Colossians 1:27
Lord, may we join You in releasing Your presence, Your power, Your mercy, and Your love everywhere we go!
We honor and celebrate YOU, Jesus, on this day and every day of the year! HALLELUJAH!!
I celebrate Your physical birth upon this earth so many years ago.
I celebrate Your life – showing us by example and teaching how to live.
I celebrate Your willingness to lay down Your life for us.
I celebrate Your resurrection and Your spiritual life being lived out in and through us.
I celebrate You in us – the hope of glory.
My heart and spirit rejoice as we celebrate the precious birth of the Lord Jesus together! May we remember that He is with us; He loves us; and He has great plans for the New Year!! May we focus on HIS plans and join Him as we journey this life path together! Blessings & Love to you all!!
The “official” Thanksgiving Day is over…but we have many more days to celebrate our thankfulness! It all depends on where our focus lies. We will have many opportunities to see and experience things and circumstances we are NOT thankful for. But, we can choose to be thankful in the middle of them because we have Someone who will walk with us through them and Who will give us the strength to overcome!!
As we begin the journey towards CHRISTmas….may we continue to be thankful as we focus on WHO this season is all about!! I am thankful for my Lord & Savior, Jesus, and I celebrate His physical birth upon this earth and His spiritual birth within each of us!!
May we spread His love and the Good News during the coming days. If not us…then who?
