Prayer for Strength

 

Psalm 119:159

New King James Version (NKJV)

159 Consider how I love Your precepts; Revive me, O Lord, according to Your loving kindness.

Lord Jesus we love your commandments and follow them.  Consider us Lord as we ask for strength. We need you Lord to make it through this day.  Thank you Lord for your loving kindness and for strength.

In Jesus name, Amen.

Be Blessed

 
 

Celebrating Christmas

I love this time of year, celebrating Christmas.  I love decorating the tree, cooking and watching stories about Christmas. Especially the ones that tell the story of the birth of Christ, my risen Savior.

The Christmas tree reminds of when the people from afar brought gifts to Christ Jesus when He was born. It was an act of love and a celebration of life. The Messiah that would save the world. We can not save the world, but we have the answer, Christ Jesus. Christ Jesus, the hope or our calling. The one who gives, peace, joy, happiness in the midst of trouble and when there is no trouble.

It is during this season, that people from all over the world seem to unify and celebrate. People give freely of their heart, just as Christ gave freely of Himself.

Blessings!

Christmas

Christmas Day will soon be here. Six days to go. During this season we should be celebrating the birth of our Lord. However, the reason for the season has changed to a promotion for Santa Claus and a big money-maker for the retail stores to turn a profit in which bottom line figures turn to black from red. Where is the telling of the birth of Jesus?

One day an individual and I had a conversation about Christmas. She did not like Christmas, because she could afford to give her children the presents they wanted when they were little because she did not have the money. I could relate to not having the money to get my children all the gifts they wanted. I shared with her the reason for Christmas. Christmas is not about Santa Claus, it is about the birth of Jesus. God sent his son in human form, so we would have the right to salvation. Christmas is not about the gifts it is about Christ. Yes, I sing “Santa Claus is coming to town”, but I tell my children the gifts that they are getting are from the Lord. He has provided us with the money to purchase you the gifts that you have received. Long story short, her reply was I wish I knew that when her children was smaller.

As we get closer to our Christian Holiday “Christmas”, may we remember the reason for the season.

Be Blessed!

Christmas Song – I’m Getting Nothing For Christmas

 

I love this time of year.  I love to sing Christmas songs. Growing up we would pull out the old vinyl record and sing. I love the song ” I’m Getting Nothing for Christmas”.  It puts a smile on face. Good times, yeah good times.  Here is the original song and a animated one.

 

 

Laughter is a good medicine. What Christmas songs make you laugh?

Be Blessed!
