Christmas (Faith Poem)

Oh day so bright

Near the close of this year


When we celebrate the light

And great joy replaces our fear


We remember the holy sight

When God came so near


A little babe, at a time just right

Was born of a virgin here


Let us hope to hold the might

Of the event so dear

With us throughout the rest of the next year

Merry Christmas!

I am so sorry that I was unable to send out a Christmas Eve message! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Eve and got at least some sleep last night!

Christmas is finally here! It is a time to celebrate all of the wonderful things that we have in our lives – with the most emphasis upon the Lord Jesus.

Because the Lord sent His one and only Son to be born on this earth and to be sacrificed here as well, we can all walk closely with the Lord throughout our lives and enter into heaven when our time on earth is done. All we have to do is believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He was sacrificed so that we may be healed and made righteous in the eyes of the Lord!

Here are two of the pictures I took at a Christmas Eve candlelight service. They were a beautiful reminder that we shine brighter when we are with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ!

Merry Christmas, blessings, and a special thank you to all of my followers! I am so happy that you are enjoying my posts, and I look forward to any comments and questions you may have!

And to all of those who are visiting my blog, merry Christmas, welcome, and I hope you will join my growing blog community!

Simple Kindnesses

These days, people are constantly keeping busy. We always have something to do and somewhere to go. But, it will brighten your day- and somebody else’s- if you take time to provide simple kindnesses. And when I say simple, that is exactly what I mean. Some of the very basic things you could do include…

(♦) Offering a smile and/or greeting whether one is given to you or not.

(♦) Saying please and thank you (even if the performed action was compulsory)

(♦) Showing compassion and understanding when others make mistakes (all kinds of mistakes!)

Simple kindnesses won’t take much time at all, but they can make an incredible difference in this world! We can follow in the example of Jesus, and small kindnesses make up a large portion of that goal.

Have ideas for other simple kindnesses that are not mentioned here? Please share them in the comment section!
