Angels we have heard on high ... tis the season for miracles!

That first Christmas was a miracle ... witnessed first by the poor, meek and unknown of the world ... yet what an impact on history ... what an impact on humanity ... and most amazingly what an individual impact  .. thank you JESUS ... we again await the celebration of Angels singing, as the echoes of mercy have rocked through time and space all these years ... and in eternity to come!

in the days to come ...

God is also a bridge over the chasm that divides us from Him ... the "Way Maker" in our world of trouble ... and the Safe Haven in the days to come ... He IS our Everything!

don't despair ...

just when it seems the darkest ... God shines a light - tells us to hang on for just a while longer - it will be alright ...

Jesus said ...

Jesus left us so many comforting quotes ... the "I will come again" is one of my favourites ... my heart waits for that day ... Even so, Come Lord Jesus - Come!

Thank you to all the men and women who have fought for the freedom of us all ... may the brave hearts in all of us be stirred to stand up for each other ... because we were created in the Image of God - and we should have respect for one another ...

winter's chill ...

it's not quite this bleak here - yet ... the river is still open ... but i can feel the chill of winter starting, as we received our first significant snowfall last night ... i am not a winter person, so each year i need to consciously focus on HIM Who Is my portion ... to be the soul that seeks Him at all times and finds my ALL in Jesus, Who Is my Lord ... and Saviour ...

Who/What is your boast?

CBN news clip:

Franklin Graham gave the world a glimpse into his father's personal walk with God by revealing the one verse he's held on to his whole life.  "Still today, my father Billy Graham has a Bible verse pinned up on the wall in his bedroom, printed in VERY large letters. In fact, it's in the dining room, his bathroom, and several other spots around the house!" Graham began in a Facebook post. "Galatians 6:14 says, "But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world."

" It was his passion to memorize it, to saturate his heart and mind with it. He made it his life verse," Graham added. 

i have tried to place verses all around our house too... especially the bathroom (people notice there!!!) ... Jesus lives everywhere in our condo ... and most importantly, we try and make our lives shine for Him ... we do fail, but then we get up - and get on with the task - mindful of the fact that it is Christ who lives in us ...
