A Savior Is Born (this is love)

 

When God came to us in the flesh. Jesus is God in the flesh.

When Jesus was born, history was changed forever!

He offers peace, and new life in Him. He fulfilled the Old Testament Law, and freed us from the chains of sin, and death. He offers salvation to all who believe in him.

He summed up the law in Mathew 22:37-40.  Jesus declared, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

The Birth of Jesus

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place whilea]”>[a] Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register.

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
    and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

 

 

‘Twas the night before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas,in my messy house.
My creatures, my dogs are stirring, they want to go for a walk.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
If St. Nicolas comes to my house he will trip on the clutter all throughout my house.

The children are begging me to tell them what I got them for Christmas…
While visions of lap tops, phones, and expensive technology danced in their heads.
And mamma in her work clothes going in for a long exhausted shift
Has not even got her Christmas presents wrapped!!!!

Seriously though, I have to work in two hours, and I still haven’t wrapped any of my Christmas gifts.
I am such a procrastinator, I need to be more prepared next year! I must thrive on waiting until last minute. That is how I get motivated I guess. Not the best way to approach things. 😀
I get to work and spend Christmas Eve. taking are of those who cannot care for themselves, and whose families don’t visit them.
There is a purpose for me to work on Christmas Eve.
I can always wrap presents later.

I am a

Jesus Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6
6 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

During this stressful and busy season, remember that the Prince of peace was born 2,000 years ago.

Do you have peace in your life? Jesus is peace. Depend on Him for peace, and not your circumstances that can change any moment. Stand firm, in that you have access to peace, and depend on Him. You can have peace in your life. Jesus said in John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid”. No matter what you are going through, you can have peace.

1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

If you need peace with God, say am simple prayer with me “Dear Jesus, I believe in you. I believe that you died on the cross for my sins, and rose again to give me eternal life. I confess that I need you”.

If you prayed that prayer, you will enjoy life to the fullest,

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10.

Now I have to turn around and buy her presents.
Fa-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la
I haven’t gotten any shopping done

I get this song in my head and this version during the Holiday season. I am such a procrastinator. It’s my fault. I’m not complaining. I love the holidays and get togethers with the whole family. I love going around and looking at the lights in the neighborhood, the display at the mini golf, at Water World, and the our local zoo. It’s so pretty and magical.
Next year I’ll learn, right? To not wait last minute.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

Growing up, I participated in Operation Christmas Child every year. Had anyone heard of this, and what do you think of it?

Operation Christmas Child is where you send a shoe box of gifts, candy, and toiletries to children in third world countries. You get to pick the age group and gender of the child you want to send a box to.

Do you think these kids enjoy this? Or are they like what do I do with this toy…?

There still is time to drop off a shoe box if you are interested: Drop off locations

I finally ordered my personalized Christmas card through Zazzle.

Christmas countdown 37 Day! Ahhh So not ready yet!

Christmas tree from last year.

Seriously, I have 37 days to get ready for Christmas. I have not done a single thing. I still need to mail Christmas cards to my large family, I have not done any Christmas shopping. My daughter’s birthday is in December as well. I really need to get it together! 😀

I am such a procrastinator. I am just so busy and I need to be more organized in my life, especially with my time management.

I am also excited to buy custom Christmas cards with my families pictures , because I try to make my own Christmas cards through adobe, and I am not a graphic designer. Well, I am not as good as these companies:

Evermine

I love Christmas, mostly because I get to spend time with my family. I work all the time! I love the decorations, giving gifts, spoiling the kids, and getting into the Christmas spirit.
I used to create my own Christmas cards with Adobe Photoshop, but I am job not that great at it! 
I found a few web sites with customized Christmas cards, I’m trying to decide which site to use, and which card to pick. These Christmas cards look so much better than the ones I make! HAHA. 
I have a big family, and most of my family is out of state, so it is nice to send pictures of the kids. 
I’m trying to decide who to go through to make a custom Christmas card. 
I am thinking about going through Zazzle.com, or Evermine.com. I’ll post an update afterwards! =) 
I also found customized Christmas tags.  
Evermine.com has free holiday printables! How cool. https://www.evermine.com/holiday-printables/ Thought I’d share. 🙂
