Peaceful Christmas Corners~

Good Morning!! I woke to sunshine and cold winds! The sky is so crystal is beautiful. Sipping on my first cup of coffee for the morning...tastes so good. I have a load of laundry going I feel I'm playing catch up with that task.

Hope to have the household chores done by 10am as I have an appointment at the nail treat for myself! It has been a peaceful Christmas season for us thus far...just enjoying the time with our family..playing marathon games of scrabble in the evenings, baking cookies and my favorite...reading.

With the presents wrapped and gently placed under the tree waiting to be given to loved ones, it marks a very special time for me. I reflect on the year that is coming to a close....the lessons that I have learned and guidance received from the Wonderful Counselor, and the peace that comes from knowing the Prince of Peace...that in spite of any storm that comes...He is there...He is Emmanuel.....God with us. Seeing circumstances turnaround so suddenly...knowing that the Mighty God we serve has touched the situation, and the Everlasting Father giving correction and instruction to bring us to the place of true humbleness and dependence on Him. We can choose to go our own our lives in our own Him only this part or that only a part of ourselves...or give all to Him as He gave His all to the Son and Savior Jesus Christ. I encourage you to take time before the new year to reflect on your life and allow the Lord to show you the places He has been with the dark times ...the joyous times,through transition and growth in your relationship with Him.

May you and yours have a wonderful day filled with peace and joy!!


"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." ~Isaiah 9:6~
