Advent 2012 Christmas Blessings!

shepherds-fields-mosaic2-cc-mockstarFor to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

TO US Christ has come! Not just as a child, but as the God who is with us today. The biggest mistake we could make this Christmas would be to leave Jesus lying in a manger.  He has come to make the with-God life a reality in our lives today. And, oh, what a difference it makes!

Let every heart rejoice!

Thanks to all of you who have read my Advent blog over these 4 weeks. “My hope is that the description of God’s love in my life will give you the freedom and courage to discover it in yours.” H. Nouwen

Merry Christmas everyone!

    Thank you Gail for all the very thoughtful blog articles! I enjoyed every one of them and they helped keep me mindful of what’s important during this busy season!
    Today’s comments are especially true- as our Christmas stretched over 3to 4 days and we read the Christmas story at least 3 times, I began fhinking, As important as the Christmas story is, knowing Christ as He is, today and His influence and care over our lives is really what I rejoice about!
