May Christmas Stay With You

Image
❄ Merry late Christmas, dear readers! I hope you had a joyous day. ❄
Although Christmas day has come and gone, I think one of the most important things for us to do now is for us to keep the Spirit of Christmas in our hearts. I woke up the day after Christmas and thought "now what?" There were presents to enjoy, yes, but what were the presents if I would be so soon to forget the sense of peace that came from remembering that my Saviour loved me to much to come to earth and redeem me from my sins and short comings?
O Holy night, the stars are brightly shining; It is the night of our dear Savior's birth. Long lay the world in sin and error pining Til He appeared and the soul felt it's worth. A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn. Fall on your knees O hear the angel voices O night divine! O night when Christ was born O night divine! O night, o night divine!
May you always remember that holy night, and may we say as Mr. Scroog…

Peace

At Christmas we celebrate the birth of the Prince of peace, and we all can open our hearts and let in the "peace of God, which passeth all understanding" (Phillip. 4:7) Isn't there something so delightfully and irresistibly cozy about a scene like the ones pictured below? Gazing at a nativity scene gives me an overwhelming sense of peace, as I think about wonderful it would have been there to see the newborn King! And what about that feeling you get when you see the snow blanketed deep?


Some of my very most favourite scriptures are about peace. I'd like to share three with you now~
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.  ~John 16:33
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.  ~John 14:27
My son, peace be unto thy soul; thine adversity and thine affl…

"Light the World" this Christmas

Image
One of my favourite things about the Christmas season is the lights. And the warmth. This time of year is cold and dark (depending on where you live. . .), and I love that we are given a holiday to bring some light and warmth to those that are lacking it. We celebrate the birth of our Saviour, who is the light of the world.
This video beautifully shows how we can be a light for others. Watching it is a perfect way to get into the spirit of the season! Let's all do our part to light the world for Christ!

#LIGHTtheWORLD Along with the video is a calendar with wonderful ideas how you can be a light all month long. It's getting me so excited as I see all the good I can do this month! :) I hope you see some ideas on there that you can do, too.

"I am the light of the world." ~John 8:12

"Ye are the light of the world." ~Matthew 5:14
