It's Coming

     I read a book today in my spare time🤗( it was only 99 pages with a large font and extra space between the paragraphs). I had no idea what the book was about or that it would be my blog for today. It was a catchy title for this time of year, and was on the $1.00 shelf at the Christian book store...love those shelves... The book is "Advent Conspiracy, Can Christmas Still Change the World", by the Pastors Rick McKinley, Chris Seay, and Greg Holder. For more information, go to Adventconspiracy.org. Most Inspiring!!
     The book focuses on how so many of us, myself included, have become overwhelmed by the decorating, shopping for the perfect gifts, not to mention baking the special cookies for all those "expecting them" as Holiday Traditions. 
     ADVENT! In Latin the word means 'coming. ' The four Sundays (weeks) before Christmas in preparation and celebration of Jesus coming into the world. How have your last four weeks been? Has it been the hustle and bustle of long lines at checkout, meal planning, traffic and parking at the stores (cutting someone off for the last space), or burning the Christmas cookies because of last minute Christmas cards which won't be there before New Year's?!? 
     The REAL Reason for the Season is Jesus, our Lord and Savior! How do I keep Christ in Christmas?
     The book focuses on what you're doing, and why you're doing it, as well as how we can share the true meaning of Christmas with those near and far.
     This week I was blessed to deliver 100+ gifts to our ministry partners at Rev. Kelly's Open Door program that God's Grace Community Church shares the Love of Jesus Birth. Thank you to all who shared in this blessed ministry. 

Merry Christmas, and God's Blessings to each of you!

Have a Blessed day, a gift from God!
