Finding Christmas

What have I forgotten? Did I get all the ingredients? Will they like my gift? Mommy, when will it be Christmas? Mommy, I’m hungry. Mommy, brother is being mean to me! Gracious, these few days before Christmas can be stressful!
Today, I encourage you to find the manger in your heart. I share with you some sources that help center me. It is difficult to find your center when you want so very much to please everyone. You want to make this Christmas special!
Our loving Father has already done that! He gave us his own Son and with this birth we celebrate comes salvation. Goodness for all our tomorrows. Christmas is all about love. “God is love.” With Him there is all that we need. Find something beautiful to read. If you could give any gift to those you love,what would it be? Write out your prayer and bring your gift of love to Mary and her Babe. Merry Christmas!


Gray sky
An earth without warmth,
In the silence
In the cold
When all seemed lost
The promise did unfold
Rejoce dear friend
Of my hand take hold
Together we will light the candle
And guide the children’s path
That we may carry our gifts of love to Mary and her Babe

Candle light
Eyes bright
Snow tonight?

Peppermint, pine
Cinnamon and thyme
Sugar plum time

Angels, sheppard’s
Critters and kings
The star’s light brings

In the manger
Of our hearts
Christmas starts
