πŸ”” Christmas Bell's are Ringing πŸ””




 Ding Dong πŸ”” Ding Dong πŸ”” Christmas Bell's are ringing 

☆**♡♡**☆

"There's a song in the air! There's a star in the sky! There's a mother's deep prayer
and a baby's low cry! And the star rains its fire while the beautiful sing,
for the manger of Bethlehem cradles a King!
First stanza from the hymn
~ There's a song in the air ~

☆**♡♡**☆

One cannot help but sing with a joyful heart this Christmas season
when we are reminded of God's love as we prepare 
in celebration of His Son, our Savior and Lord.
I pray there is a song in your heart because you know of the Savior,
 our gracious King, our long expected Jesus, born to set Thy people free.
He is the Hope of all the earth and Joy of every longing heart.

☆**♡♡**☆

It was a silent night, a holy night, when all was calm and all was bright.
Picture this beauty...
In the manger of Bethlehem which cradles our gracious King,
lies a Holy Infant, so tender and mild, sleeping in heavenly peace while
surrounded by Shepherds who traveled afar
and angels singing sweetly over the plains...
Glory to the newborn King!
God, give us ears to hear the song of angels from afar,
and let them speak to us of hope and faith and love.
Nestled in His cradle is our Savior and our King!
Behold Him, adore Him, worship Him, Christ the newborn King!

☆**♡♡**☆

"For we have seen His star in the East
and have come to worship Him."
~ Matthew 2:2 ~
All men can behold the Christmas star and come to a humble place
of His birth to gather on bended knee at the side of His manger bed.
God, in sending a Savior into the world,
opened salvation to all the world.
Jesus was born for all!
"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior,
which is Christ the Lord."
~ Luke 2:11 ~
Jesus came to offer the free gift of Gods love to all
to everyone ~ to you.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him should not perish
but have everlasting life.
For God did not send His Son into he world to condemn the world,
but that the world through Him might be saved."
~ John 3:16-17 ~

☆**♡♡**☆

"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men."
~ Luke 2:14 ~
Jesus' birth, death, and resurrection took place so we can possess peace
amid the storms of life.
In our times of doubt, He reassures of His presence in our lives;
and in our times of distrust, He encourages us to lean on Him
and experience His power and strength.
When the troubles of life threaten our spiritual well-being,
He comes to still the storms and bring true and lasting peace.
This time of year it seems as if you run into people more often than not
who are struggling in some way or another.
Extend to them compassion and share the good news of the love of God.
Tell them of the babe born in a stable on that first Christmas long ago;
and the beauty and promise of that silent, holy night.

God's blessings to you!
~ Debbie ~

Hello Debbie,
You've written a very beautiful post. You are so right about sharing kindness with others. I know that there are folks we see each time we go out who may not have heard a kind word that day. I want to be part of spreading the love of Jesus movement that was begun that starry night long long ago.
Happy Christmas time to you dearie!

Beautiful words Debbie,
it is lovely to hear of our Lord Jesus Christ at Christmas time, as many appear to be blocking Him out and making it very secular.

Catching up here and thinking about our tea last Fall in Georgetown. I am hopeful one day we can meet again like that and enjoy a few hours of chatting and sipping tea.

I wish you a beautiful New Year in 2018 and hope everything that needs to come together will. Many blessings to all of you.

God's goodness and love is all around us.
