What Has He Done?

Only five days until most of the world pauses for a day to remember, to rejoice, to celebrate. The detail and intricacy spanning a few thousand years, written in the book we call the Bible, is amazing. Lives lived in ages past that mirror ours today. Promises of…

12 Ways…

(Look for The 12 Ways of Christmas releasing next November) Twelve days until our remembrance of THE birth – the one that changed everything. This soul needs to be more wrapped up in His gift to us than in the paper and bows. Join me on a quest? Let’s…

No Unbelief…

In Gatlinburg, TN there are burned down dreams and memories in ash piles. A family grieves the loss of a son, not knowing whose anger caused the shots. Another grieves the loss of a father trying to do his job to serve and protect….

Goodness Grace

Thanks—giving. Maybe separating the words a little shows the heart of the celebration. Not Thanks-getting, but the giving of thanks. Christmas is up in the stores before turkeys for the table are being shipped. We barely breathe in the aroma of our favorite foods before we…

Accept Me…

     Gifts are funny things – we like giving them, and we do like getting them, but we have such a hard time accepting them.  To exchange gifts is one thing, to have someone give us something without reason or unexpectedly – we’re not sure what to…

What is…

     December is under way, the hustle and bustle is in full swing. Cookies are being baked, gift lists reviewed, fun events on the calendar. This year I am letting go of ‘just so’ and ‘perfect’ – and I’m finding happy with what is……

Joy…Full, Joy…Full

     There is a song now 107 years old that starts off Joyful, Joyful we adore Thee, God of glory, God of love… With Christmas just six days away is our joy…full? Even in the absence of happiness, joy is to be our heart’s…

HAPPY TODDLER PLAYTIME
