What Christmas Means to Me….

Sarah's Pics 051

To me, Christmas isn’t about all the gifts, all that you receive and all that you can get. Christmas isn’t about the shopping, the lights, the gift wrappings, Christmas carols

and deals you can get on TV and online. Me, I love to give gifts, I love seeing joy on ones face, and sure, I also love Christmas lights! They are always

so pretty. Well, come to think of it, the gift wrappings are too, with all their colors and bows. However one of my favorite things about Christmas is the food!

The ham, green bean casserole, potatoes, cranberries and rolls…. nummy…. Still, There is more to it, like snow! Snow is good (though most the time

we get rain), Christmas is great with all that white fluff.

Yet before all that, when I think of Christmas I think of my time spent with my family. To me spending that special day with the ones you love makes the holiday

joy complete. We lounge around in pj’s and spend the day together, watching movies and playing games. There, at home, surrounded by family and love,

you can feel the spirit of Christmas.

Then, what Christmas is truly about, what Christmas really means to me. It means the joy, love and peace that God gave me, that He gave us.

He couldn’t have shown more love to us, then by sending His son here on earth. God gave us the best gift that could be given, and it didn’t come in a wrapped box

or bag. God didn’t come to give us a great deal on that new something we wanted or give us that earthy trifle we desired. He gave us a chance

to be saved, He gave us eternal life in heaven, God gave us grace and showed us love. Our Lord gave us a gift, and to receive, all we have to do

is ask. What a wonderful gift He gave, Jesus.

That’s what Christmas is to me.

This picture is amazing, if you can see it or can zoom in on it, you will see two very pretty snow fakes.

I was out playing with my sisters rabbit, and that’s when I saw them land on his black coat, and I could see their shape!

However the silly rabbit wanted nothing to do with my picture taking so I took a pic. of the flakes on my own coat.

When I saw that they showed in the photo I got super excited! :D

Bible Verses….

Sarah's Pics 051

  Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender

mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering;

bearing with one another, and forgiving one another,

if anyone has a complaint against another;

even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.

But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.

Colossians 3:12-14

I am Free….

Sarah's Pics 005

I was dead,

Stained blood red.

Till Jesus saved me,

And now I’m free.

I am white as snow

And from me He’ll never go.

Jesus is my guide;

He never leaves my side.

I give Him my thanks,

For giving me my strength,

And His word, which is my sword.

He is my Savior and Lord.

I was dead to Him,

Stained red from my sin.

Till Jesus saved me,

And now I’m free.

I am free!

Sometimes a dew covered web and grass, or a frost covered bush, can be more beautiful than any lace made by man.

Style to Love….

Sarah's Pics 060

Style, you buy.

Beauty, you find within.

Manners, you learn.

Character, you build.

Kindness, you give.

Trust, you earn.

Grace, you are given.

Love, you receive.

Beautiful Christian Sister…

rose 21

A woman’s heart should be so hidden in Christ

That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.

 

When I say… “I am a Christian”, I’m not shouting “I’m clean livin’”

I’m whispering, “I was lost, now I’m found and forgiven.”

 

When I say… “I am a Christian”, I don’t speak of this with pride.

I’m confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

 

When I say… “I am a Christian”, I’m not trying to be strong.

I’m professing that I am weak and need His strength to carry on.

 

When  I say… “I am a Christian”, I’m not bragging of success.

I’m admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

 

When I say… “I am a Christian”, I’m not claiming to be perfect,

My flaws are too visible but, God believes I am worth it.

 

When I say… “I am a Christian”, I still feel the sting of pain…

I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

 

When I say… “I am a Christian”, I’m not holier than thou,

I’m just a simple sinner who received God’s good grace, somehow!

Psalm….

Sarah's Pics 028

Come let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song. For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. In His hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to Him. The sea is His, for He made it, and His hands formed dry the  land. Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for He is our God and we are His people of His pasture, the flock under His care.

Psalm 95:1-7
