Christ(mas) The Light

“THE ADVENT journey reminds us that we cannot take the light for granted. Christ is near, and God partners with us, makes covenant with us, and asks us to respond to the light that has come into the world. We may not have to move far, but God does ask us to move, to be bold enough to step out on faith and seek the light.”—Todd Outcalt, Blue Christmas

Scripture for your Pocket:

“The people living in darkness
have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.” (Matthew 4:16 (NRS )

“The Advent and Christmas season is often associated with joy, love, generosity, and unity. But for many people, this time of year magnifies loneliness, anxiety, grief, and despair. While others are enjoying celebrations with their friends and families, those who are hurting often feel even more lost, abandoned, and alone than ever.

“Not all Christmases are white; some are blue,” Todd Outcalt writes. Blue Christmas is a devotional book for the 28 days of Advent and Christmas Day. Each devotion includes a scripture selection, meditation, prayer, and suggested Advent action. The book also features additional prayers, a “Blue Christmas” worship service, and reflection questions.” Blue Christmas -Description of Book….This book is available @Amazon,

Yet, the greatest BOOK gives us the greatest chandelier to light 💡 our lives and give light to those all around us. “That you love one another, John 13:34 “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.”

What Are You Thankful For?

What Are You Thankful For?

“Studies have shown that people who practice gratitude report experiencing more joy, express more compassion and generosity, and are even less likely to get sick.”

How do we nurture a spirit of thankfulness in our busy schedules? I find that being purposeful helps me to be vigilant in such a high stake action.

Happy Thanksgiving to All!

Rena and her prayer Shaw

I received this prayer Shaw from a little girl who is five.  She came in swinging her pig tails and carrying a large bag.

I said what a beautiful bag!!!

She said, “It is for you”, at which I said, “For Me!!!”

She said, It is for your surgery.  I was puzzled.

Then I thought she probably over heard someone ask me about the eye surgery.  (Cataract surgery x2)

Her mother said she without her asking her went to the prayer Shaw ladies and asked them to make this prayer shaw for me.  

I was humbled by such a beautiful gift.  I’m running a little late on pray this am so now will put it on and pray.

I had to share this beautiful story of her gift.
