Comfort and Joy
I'm representing the northeast corner of the USA up here in Maine in Mark Koopmans' "50 States of Pray" where someone from each state (and some countries) will "take a moment and about 100 words - share a prayer, a thought, a memory, a hope,... a regret,... a wish for the future" on Christmas Eve.
Thank you Mark from Hawaii for this wonderful idea! Visit the page and hear what other bloggers have to share this Christmas Eve at Aloha! Mark Koopmans Says Hi from HI.
I love this song used in the story of Christmas, sung by the animals where Jesus lay in their manger. Not too "heavy", just a sweet tune and words. Have a listen if you have the time this Christmas Eve!
The sheep and cow wanted to prepare him room, and they gave up their space and food for the King of Kings. They received Him, welcoming Him in.
My prayer is "Let Earth receive her King."
We always hear that Christmas is about giving, not receiving.
But that's not really entirely true; it is about receiving, too.
Will you receive your King?
When you receive Him, you can then receive what He has to give.
He would like to give us everything.
May you be filled with Comfort and Joy this Christmas!
Merry Christmas to All!
