There are many in a lonely place and not a warm hand to hold or a pat on the back? We that have it all and reach out and touch seem to have more and again reach out and touch.
It’s snowing at my home, again. So beautiful as the purity of white fall gently on my trees while I watch from my upstairs window and wonder, where are my little birds? The quiet of the morn on a snowy morn awaken senses one never knew they had. Love pursues and fears disappear like lighting in the sky. Family and friends are joy when hands unite and become a branch that holds the gently, yet heavy at times, blanket of beauty, that stretch beyond the eye. Magical it is because the miracle of love has been born! Peace and love to your day, One and All! A very Merry Christmas

Sara your snow words seem to have lots of layers just like the falling snow makes the layer deeper.
” when hands unite and become a branch ” …helps give me a practical understanding of your words, ‘reach out and touch ‘ and Jesus words from John 15:5 ” “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
And in another sense, we find the Hebrew word for Branch(es) is Nazer from which we get the name Nazareth and Nazarene, Jesus, the Branch; the Root and offspring of Jesse, the Nazarene, the Branch.
“”Tell him this is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘Here is the man whose name is the Branch, and he will branch out from his place and build the temple of the LORD.”….He, the consummate Branch
Is He the “everlasting arms that are beneath us upon which we lean and trust…like your mounds of snow lie on the reaching branches of the trees and bushes in your yard? How they cradle the snow, tenderly, compassionately lest a breeze knock the marshmallowy, white fluff onto the ground! The glory of the trees and bushes in your yard is the careful way the branches tend the snow, as the careful way the Lord, the BRANCH tends His children. Your winter wonderland yard is a Bible study of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Branch, the First Fruit among us.
I would like to share a Christmas story with you that comes from a living nativity scene just as I shared this post with you. We receive many stories like this as we continue to join our hands in unity and support the snow. God’s never fails. Let us make a goal to live it more!!!

Hi Sara, I must tell you about my day thus far. After Preston and I had breakfast I made a coconut cream pie for my Mail Carrier. She has been so kind to me lately, and I knew she loved those pies. I met her at the mailbox and gave it to her, and we talked for a few minutes and said “have a nice day.” I took the mail inside and gave the newspaper to Preston, then I heard a horn blow. I went to the door, and guess what? I saw the Fed Ex truck in the driveway. He got out of the truck and proceeded to the back, opened the door, and picked up this package. As he began his walk up to the steps, my mind was racing 50 miles a minute. I had ordered some little things, but nothing that would take a box that size. Well are you getting any funny feelings yet? I took the package, said thank you and have a nice day. He said likewise. I quickly looked on that big box to find a name and address. One of my precious Angels has made me laugh and cry as well. Sara ! you are absolutely an Angel picked by our loving Father in Heaven to send love to those who are facing difficulties. The wreath is absolutely beautiful. I have already put it on my dining room table. I took off the arrangement that I had there and replaced it with the one you sent. I am still in a heavenly state of mind. I showed love to someone and within minutes, an overwhelming abundance came to Preston and me. We are truly blessed by you and the kind words and deeds you do. I know that God had some pleasant moments as He watched that love in action all morning. As I walk hand in hand with Him, even with the difficulties, each day gets sweeter. I know the time is drawing nearer when we will be with Him forever-what a glorious time that will be. We will be basking in love throughout
eternity. Thanks for everything, and the prayers for Preston. I LOVE YOU!!
What a lovely story and illustration of your blog, Sara! Rena Sexton weaves her word account so beautifully. Her genuine expressiveness, appreciativeness and love towards the Father God shines so brightly.
Your words, Sara, ” Magical it is because the miracle of love has been born!” are fulfilled in this story.
Beautiful Christmas story.
Amazing to look at the picture of snow above, and know that Jesus can make our sins that white! Thank you, God, for sending Your precious Son, so that we can be blameless before You.
Sara, great confirmations! Your ministry to others is like the prophetic words of Zech. 6:12…”He will BRANCH out from this place and build the temple (church) of the Lord. What a lovely gesture to help build up the Temple, the Church, the Body of Christ.
Beautiful story of Rena Sexton who weaves her words and weaves her actions into, for and through people in love. I think she must have a whole lot of the HOLY SPIRITs infilling within her. In my BSF fellowship this week after listening to the lecture I came away with in order to get more infilling of the Holy Spirit we must walk out what God has given us to do for HIM, no matter how hard it is to do and then you will have more of the infilling of the HOLY SPIRIT which will then be seen by others through your actions and words.
