Twas the month of December and all through the house, the women were hurrying and bustling about. There is shopping, and cooking and decorating the tree. Oh, my goodness, will I ever have time for me?
Tis the season to be jolly it is said, but with these extra activities, I just plop into bed. So much to be done, so little time left. Visions of gifts and deadlines swirl in my head.
But what to my wondering eyes should appear, but an angel of peace beckoning me near. “Come now, my child, sit at my feet. Dwelling in my presence is so very sweet. Do not be afraid, all will get done for God has sent you his own precious Son.”
The true gifts of Christmas are hope, peace and joy, the angels proclaimed to the shepherd boy. Let me be like Mary, so calm and so mild. Her focus instead on the new born Christ child.
O Lord, forgive me I am such a sheep. I pray for my family in your protection to keep. It’s not the glitter or the red velvet bows, but the peace & love within my spirit that his glory shows.
Enjoy this season. Take time to relax and have fun. God loves us so much He gave us His Son.
Until next time, keep looking up!
