10 Days of Christmas

Let Israel be glad in his Maker;
Let the sons of Zion rejoice in their King.
Let them praise His name with dancing;
Let them sing praises to Him with timbrel and lyre.
For the LORD takes pleasure in His people;
He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation.
~ Psalm 149:2-4 ~

Bells of Christmas day
Resounding joy of true love
Peace and hope to all

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world,
but that the world might be saved through Him.
~ John 3:16-17 ~

More than just presents
More than the tree and stockings
Christ is the reason

Peace I leave with you;
My peace I give to you;

Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.

Peace to you and yours
Blessings abounding always
For God is still near

Christmas Scripture and Haiku??

Time seems to have escaped me, and I find myself very behind on the Scripture and Haiku for the countdown to Christmas…however, it is my hope to get caught up tonight and over the weekend, so please bear with me :-)

May God bless you and keep you during this beautiful season, and I pray you find yourself surrounded by peace, joy, and love despite whatever circumstances you may be facing.

Hugs and blessings to all y’all! <3

Ultimate Present
Heavens Gift to all mankind
Wrapped in swaddling cloth

Jesus is the Reason!

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
~ Isaiah 9:6

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold,
I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people;
for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
~ Luke 2:11

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,

Jesus is the Reason

Christmas day is here at last

With presents and decorations galore

The tree stands aglow

Twinkling like the stars in the night sky

A reminder of the that one blessed eve

Over 2,000 years ago

The angels appeared to the shepherds below

Telling the birth of Immanuel

He is the ultimate gift and Savior to the lost world

Born in Bethlehem, a lowly babe

Sent from Heaven above

God gave us His only Son to live and die

A sacrifice for all mankind

Though presents are lovely

And stockings filled with goodies bring a smile

Remember that fateful night long ago

He is the reason we celebrate

The magi came from afar to worship and adore

They brought Him gifts of frankincense, gold and myrrh

The gifts we give to one another are thoughtful indeed

But the best gift we can give

Is the message of eternal life and love

Give the true gift of Christmas this year

Give the message of God’s mercy and grace

The promise of forgiveness of sins

A hope for an eternal life spent with Him

 God bless and keep you and your family always, and may you have the courage to share the love and sacrifice of Christ on this blessed Christmas day!
