Last Weekend Of Autumn And Advent

It’s been an interesting week. And now it’s the time has come for the seasons to change. Yes! Winter has already arrived. No doubt about it. BRR!

It’s the last weekend of Fall 2014. It’s be a nice season. We were blessed with a lot of good weather. Thank You, Jesus! Also it’s the last weekend of Advent. Christmas is coming.

I hope you have most of your shopping done. If not, peace be with you as you go your way. Remember, God is with you. So be kind to those who are not in a hurry.

May we be thankful for what we have.
May we be a blessing to others.
May we.

Happy Holidays!
Thanks for reading.

In Wonderland

It’s that time of year again. It’s that four letter word I don’t like to hear. SNOW! It has arrived again. But this time it will stick to the ground. They say about 1 to 3 inches. I hope we don’t get too much snow.

I know that the kids would love not going to school. Winter break starts Friday. I think they must be praying for an early break. lol You know, that there are people who love snow.

I’ll wake up in the morning and see how much snow we got. It’s been cold enough to snow. We had some rain this week. I’m glad it didn’t freeze. We don’t need to go ice skating.

Wherever you are in the world, I hope that you’re safe and sound. I am. I’m asleep. This is a future post. LOL. I like that. I can be in two places at once. Right now, I’m sleeping. Sweet dreams.

May we enjoy life more.
May we see the beauty of the season that we are in.

Thanks for reading.

Merry Christmas!

Eight Days: New Season

Happy Day to you! We’re eight days away. Yes, the season of Christmas starts.

I see this as new beginnings.
The number 8 is a new beginning. The joy of seeing something new. We’re in the newness of time with a fresh new start. It’s like a new year. The thought of having some things to look forward to.

The joy of being apart of what God is doing. God has chosen people to be apart of His kingdom. That’s awesome. Being a partner with God in His kingdom.

May we look for new beginnings.
May we believe for the best.
May the joy of the Lord be our strength.

Joy to the world, the Lord has come.
Thanks for reading.
Happy Holidays!

Time Out

Just think. Yesterday was a nice day. The weather was not too bad. Today, well. We’re drawing closer to Winter. We need another time out! One more good weather day before 2014 comes to an end.

Okay! I shouldn’t complaint. At least, we don’t have snow on the ground. Let me knock on wood. But we have Arctic air in our midst. Yes, it’s too cold. I’m bundling up. We have to stay warm.

Into the Christmas spirit:
I’m receiving more Christmas cards. I’ll have mine out some time this week. I’m not receiving as much as last year. I’m not giving out as many this year. I think times are changing with sending cards through the mail system.

I hope all are safe and sound.
Stay WARM if you’re in cold country!
Be at rest with what’s coming your way.
Let there be Peace on Earth.

May we learn to take a time out from time to time.
May we adjust to whatever comes our way.
May we be creative in the season that we are in.
Amen.

Thanks for reading.
Happy Holidays!

Gearing Up For The Season

It’s been a wet and cold day. The Christmas rush is on. People are out and a bout doing their dos for the season. I’m glad that the weather isn’t as cold as it feels. It’s above freezing. Thank God.

I can’t believe that Christmas is the next week. There is some to do, with little time to spare. I’m not in a rush to get things done. Haven’t you heard? Christmas is season. It’s not one day out of a year.

So, if you re behind on your doings, don’t weary. You have time. Christmas is a 12 day celebration. The season begins on December 25, 2014 and ends on January 5, 2015. So relax.

May we not get all caught up in doing a lot of things.
May we see the beauty of the season we’re heading into.
May the spirit of Christmas come alive to us as we journey into the Christmas season.
Amen.

Thanks for reading.

Grace And Mercy Be With You

Welcome to the 3rd Sunday of Advent!

Prayer for the week of December 14 – 20, 2014

Stir up your power, O Lord, and with great might come among us; and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins, let your bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen.

It’s A Special Day

Happy 12/13/14!

It may not be a big deal to you. But it’s a good thing to notice. The last time this number come up was on December 13, 1914. There could be people still living to have lived to this twice. What a blessing that is.

I hope that you are aware of things. Those things that come about in life. I think that God plants things in our pathway to awaken us from slumber. There are things that can bring out the best of us. Only if we can tune into what God is saying to us.

I hope that you are coming along with life. The Lord is there to guide you. He is always there to help us on our way. We need God help in all that we do.

May we be aware of the Spirit of God in our daily life.
May we be awake to the special things.
May we continue on the journey through the Christmas Season.
Amen!

Thanks for reading.
