In just two fast-paced blink of an eye weeks, Christmas is here. You are cordially invited to pull up a chair, snuggle into a cozy throw, sip hot chocolate with me, and munch on carrot sticks. So tell me, how do you keep the most wonderful time of the year wonderful?
I devised a plan for December and it looks like this:
limit store browsing
daily do Advent Bible study
clear up, clean up, show up, share up
Oh, and don’t give up. The winter weight has begun to creep in, er, more like settle in. Joining the local fitness center was a grand plan.
I’m reminded for the thousand of times, “Most people don’t need a breakthrough. What people need is follow through.”
if you look hard enough
Inspiration is peeking out from under the last blanket of snow.
The day I spied my brave little pink rosebud was a particularly bad day. Sometimes beauty is found in the most unexpected places.
Behind the pain, or the drain, or the complain, JOY battles its way through.
JOY that arrived some 2,000 years ago in a most unexpected place. The name is Jesus. Immanuel, God is with us.
God is with me in the best and worst of days.
Let me add this to my December checklist:
Savor the Wonder of God.
See with fresh eyes God’s extravagant love in the Person of Jesus Christ. I’m part of His Grand Plan. A remarkable plan that Overcomes. Changes my perspective.
Can’t help it. Joy bubbles up.
Sidney and I wish you Merry Christmas, bloggy friends!
A Merry Christmas filled with tidings of great JOY, parked in the very midst of your life circumstances.
Won’t you pull up a chair and visit again? I treasure your company. margi
