CHRISTMAS DAY IN COMING FAST!

CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS TO ALL :)


WELCOME.. LOOKS LIKE THE DAYS ARE COUNTING DOWN QUICKLY TO CHRISTMAS DAY :) IT IS ALWAYS NICE TO HAVE THAT GIFT WRAPPED AND TIED UP AND SIGNED AND UNDER THE TREE OR IN THE STOCKING. BUT THERE HAS BEEN TIMES WHEN I I HAVE NOT HAD THE GIFT ON TIME AND KNEW IT WOULD BE A LITTLE LATE. THIS IS WHAT I DID TO ASSURE THE GIFT WAS ON THE WAY TO THE RECEIVER, SIMPLY TAKE A PHOTO THIS COULD BE FROM THE MAGAZINE OR CATALOG OR WITH YOUR CAMERA. THAT WAY THE PERSON CAN KNOW AND LOOK FORWARD TO IT COMING TO THEM. MANY A TIME CHRISTMAS CAME FOR MY DAUGHTER AND I AND I HAD TO DO THIS BEING A SINGLE MOTHER. MY DAUGHTER SAID IT WAS LIKE HAVING CHRISTMAS ALL OVER AGAIN.


THIS CHRISTMAS SHE HAS EVEN SAID TO ME IT IS OK IF YOU GIVE IT TO ME AFTER CHRISTMAS OR EVEN JANUARY.... I TELL YOU THIS IS A COMFORT TO ME SEEING IT IS HARDER TO GET AROUND IN A WHEELCHAIR NOW. LET US NOT FORGET IT IS NOT ABOUT THE GIFTS BUT OUR LOVED ONES THAT ARE CLOSE... THEY ARE THE TRUE GIFTS AMEN.

LET US NOW PONDER IN OUR HEARTS THESE WORD FROM THIS CONTEMPLATION....

From One Father to Another
This isn’t the way I planned it, God. Not at all. My child being born in a stable? This isn’t the way I thought it would be. A cave with sheep and donkeys, hay and straw? My wife giving birth with only the stars to hear her pain?
This isn’t at all what I imagined. No, I imagined family. I imagined grandmothers. I imagined neighbors clustered outside the door and friends standing at my side. I imagined the house erupting with the first cry of the infant. Slaps on the back. Loud laughter. Jubilation.
That’s how I thought it would be.
But now…Who will celebrate with us? The sheep? The shepherds?
The stars?
This doesn’t seem right. What kind of husband am I? I provide no midwife to aid my wife. No bed to rest her back. Her pillow is a blanket from my donkey.

Did I miss something? Did I, God?
When you sent the angel and spoke of the son being born—this isn’t what I pictured. I envisioned Jerusalem, the temple, the priests, and the people gathered to watch. A pageant perhaps. A parade. A banquet at least. I mean, this is the Messiah!
Or, if not born in Jerusalem, how about Nazareth? Wouldn’t Nazareth have been better? At least there I have my house and my business. Out here, what do I have? A weary mule, a stack of firewood, and a pot of warm water. This is not the way I wanted it to be!... Forgive me for asking but … is this how God enters the world? The coming of the angel, I’ve accepted. The questions people asked about the pregnancy, I can tolerate. The trip to Bethlehem, fine. But why a birth in a stable, God?
Any minute now Mary will give birth. Not to a child, but to the Messiah. Not to an infant, but to God. That’s what the angel said. That’s what Mary believes. And, God, my God, that’s what I want to believe. But surely you can understand; it’s not easy. It seems so … so … so … bizarre.
I’m unaccustomed to such strangeness, God. I’m a carpenter. I make things fit. I square off the edges. I follow the plumb line. I measure twice before I cut once. Surprises are not the friend of a builder. I like to know the plan. I like to see the plan before I begin.
But this time I’m not the builder, am I? This time I’m a tool. A hammer in your grip. A nail between your fingers. A chisel in your hands. This project is yours, not mine.
One Incredible SaviorI guess it’s foolish of me to question you. Forgive my struggling. Trust doesn’t come easy to me, God. But you never said it would be easy, did you?
One final thing, Father. The angel you sent? Any chance you could send another? If not an angel, maybe a person? I don’t know anyone around here and some company would be nice. Maybe the innkeeper or a traveler? Even a shepherd would do.

I AM SO THANKFUL THE LORD'S WAYS ARE HIGHER AND NOT MY WAY AMEN. FOR LET US REMEMBER HE WAS FULLY GOD AND FULLY MAN WHO TOOK OUR PLACE, OUR SINS UPON HIMSELF. IT IS LIKE IF THE JUDGE SAID I AM NOW GOING TO SENTENCE RENEE... AND A MAN STOOD UP IN THE COURT ROOM AND WALKED UP TO THE JUDGE...AND SAID, "I WILL TAKE ON ALL THE CHARGES AGAINST THIS WOMAN" FOR THAT IS WHAT JESUS DID FOR US AND DOES IT FOR THE WHOLE WORLD AMEN. THIS IS SO AWESOME FOR NO MATTER WHO'S NAME  IS THERE JESUS PAID IT ALL IN FULL FOR ALL OF US.
