Peaceful Christmas

Does the week of Christmas have you rushing around for last minute things? Take some time for this weeks challenge. And be sure you take time to reflect on Christmas and prepare your heart for the coming of Jesus in the flesh as a baby. To live among us and save us all from our sin. Take the time to be with your family during what can be a hectic week. When your husband ask you to come sit with him...go! When your children want you to read to them...put down what you are doing and go. These are the times we can never get back.

Here's this week's challenge: Christmas is just 5 days away and so much of our time is often spent helping the children to remember the "Reason for the Season". Now it's our turn. Once the kids are in bed get yourself a HOT drink (again we are warming the body as we warm the soul.) Get ALONE and turn out the lights by your Christmas tree, a lit fire, or a candle and just be alone with God. Pray, talk to him, I encourage you to sing Christmas carols or songs praising him, and just rest with Jesus.

 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled." John 14:27.
