Christmas Week, Or Christmas Weak??

Hello precious ones, praying you are all doing well. Sorry I have not been online very much, my virus protection expired, waiting to be able to buy some more. Until then, trying to be safe, and not get a virus. Please say a prayer for my sister Vicky today, she is having a needle biopsy done on her breast this afternoon. I would truly appreciate your prayers on her behalf. Well, are you all ready for Christmas? Is Christmas week, a week you look forward to? Or does it seem to zap you, and make you weak? Are you so busy running around doing last minute shopping, cooking, preparing for guests, etc, that you are wore out, and stressed out? When you think about getting together with your family, does it make your heart smile, or your stomach get upset? People, we need to stop, take a breathe, and remember Who Christmas is all about. The gifts under the tree do not matter, the food does not matter, the decorations do not matter, only one thing matters, JESUS!!!! Give Him away this year, to family, friends, and complete strangers. Open your heart, and share the greatest gift ever given, the only true gift that matters. Does not cost anything, but is the richest treasure ever given. Blessings to you all, and much love.

Blessings my precious sister Denise...

WOO HOO!!!

Now that you're back, I'm having a HAPPY attack... not really.

My CHRISTmas week is full of HOPE.
But I am weak... not from any of what you asked! Great post, great word. So glad to see you back. Only God knows how much I needed you.

I saw your PRAYER come in at The LIGHTHOUSE and I began to pray for
Vicky! May she be calm in the storm and may God, Our Healer keep her well and protect her from all harm and fear. We are trusting God for a clear result. I pray for God's Presence go with her and His power cover Vicky in Jesus Name.

(sorry but my prayers just don't pack the punch they once had but I still have the heart and desire to lift people and needs to the Lord but here is where I'm weak...)

I'm focused on the King! I LOVE YOUR MANGER scene... and so rich in the blessings this GIFT brings!

Thank You Lord Jesus, Mother Mary and Joseph... for the beauty in family and humility gathered to
shine Light in the darkness and break forth with a new dawn (and a great blog background which is fore ground rooting us in His birth)...

Peace on earth... love and heaven come down and shine on Denise & her family this week and always with Your Love, Grace, Provision, Peace, Protection, Joy and His Lordship,

Love you so much... Peggy

Soo happy to hear from you sister! Praying for your sister, and I love your message. I don't even desire to bake anything. I'm just slowing down, spending time with my family. Because like what you said, none of material things matter...Only about the Lord...and our loved ones and friends. Blessings to you and may you have a wonderful new year. Love you in Christ.

Thank you so much for the reminder =) My Christmas will be spent in church - my church planned revival services all throughout the latter end of this week. I'm personally not looking forward to it - but there's no stress =)

I hope you have a blessed Christmas!
