insights from a daughter of the King, teacher, farmer's wife, and Mommy

12.26.2011

after

we feasted with family
we read the verses
we talked of His birth
we opened the presents
we gave gifts to those we love
we sang the carols
we left the cookies and milk
we said Jesus is the reason for the season

but afterwards as I clean up the mess of Christmas
the dirty dishes
the paper 
the trash
the trash

i think how can we ever celebrate Him enough
and what did we do for Him today
did I teach my children the true meaning of Christmas
what will they remember
how will they celebrate His birth with their children
a holiday all about Him and we have made it all about us

cue the Charlie Brown music
"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, 'Fear not: for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.' And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.'"



did you give Glory to God this Christmas?

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
