Love - How and Who?

"In what areas of your life do you need Christ's light to dawn?"

That was the question posed to me this morning from my Advent reading*.

Perfectly Imperfect

There is, it seems, a much greater drive to achieve "perfection" at this time of year. We want the "perfect" tree, we want to buy the "perfect" gift, we want that "perfect" family picture for the "perfect" Christmas card.

The Goal of Good-bye

As usual at this time of year, many of us "take stock" of our past year and then most likely "resolve" to do and be better in the next year! And, as usual, we find it doesn't take very long to fail at that resolve!

Our Personal "Advent" Season

I just received a significant revelation from the Lord this week that has so blessed me and will change the days ahead for me, I expect, and the way I approach prayer.

A Gift Enjoyed

One of my most heart-warming memories of Christmas when I was younger is the year I got the only item I wrote down on my Christmas list - a portable transistor radio!!

Fear Not...According to Linus

For the past couple of weeks, I have been pondering a Scripture from the Christmas story in Luke's gospel -

"And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the LORD appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, Fear not. for I bring you good tidings of
great joy that will be for all the people."
Luke 2:8-10

Advent Season...Waiting

I love Advent.

I think Christmas is too big to just celebrate one day of the year, so I relish the whole of Advent Season, lighting the candles and reading an Advent devotional every day. I love the idea of waiting, the anticipation, taking in again the heart of God in sending to us His only Son, God coming to us - right where we are and right as we are.
