The months and days seem to be passing quickly it is already December 2nd with Christmas coming around the corner. I love this time of year...I enjoy the idea and pleasure of decorations to be placed, stockings to be hung and gifts to be bought for loved ones. But the real truth of the season can get one side tracked of the real reason for celebrating this season--the birth of Jesus Christ. Thanksgiving and Christmas mean so much more to me now that I can look back and recognize God through his Son Jesus Christ getting me through rough times. In my case some have been financially, feeling rejected by family or so-called friends or just feeling unloved and lonely. I am so grateful God has kept his hand and angels around me. His loving-kindness and grace draw me closer as I see more and more how his Love for me (and you) is unconditional. He still loves me through my wrong choices, selfish ways when I get caught up in the things of this world. I have come to long to share his unconditional love he has shown and given me as I walk in my life journey wanting to be a shining light for Him. He is the Reason for the Season and is there all along in our life longing for us to recognize he is there for us, with us longing to get us through with His nuggets of love and wisdom left in his Holy Word-the Bible.
Jeremiah 29: 11-14
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord," plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," declares the Lord, "and will bring you back from captivity . I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you," declares the Lord, "and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile."
Until next time...this Frugal Grannie is out...Hugs
