Blogmas Day 24🎄⛪🎄

For all reasons, in all seasons, and for no reason at all.. We seek Jesus, through prayer.

If you’re not religious, maybe you speak declarations over yourself.. To focus and manifest.

If neither of those apply, you may believe in the natural process of what’s meant to happen.

Each of these scenarios, we move forward.

For me, personally, I’m a firm believer in God but also in the universal coexistence of all living things. As I reflect on 2021, I’m going to focus on these prayers.

5 Christmas Prayers

May you be filled with the wonder of Mary, the obedience of Joseph, the joy of the angels, the eagerness of the shepherds, the determination of the magi, and the peace of the Christ child. Almighty God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit bless you now and forever.

— Author Unknown

In a world where worry, not peace, prevails, stir up that good news again. This Christmas, make it real in our hearts. Never have we needed Your joy and peace more than now. Thank You for the gift of Jesus, our Immanuel, the Word made flesh. Forgive us for forgetting—that Your love never changes, never fades, and that You never abandon the purpose for which You came: to save us from our sinful condition, and to give us life eternal, the joy of relationship with a holy God. Your birth—and Your death—sealed Your promise to us forever.

Rebecca Barlow Jordan

Almighty God, grant that the new birth of your Son in the flesh redeems us from the old slavery under the yoke of sin, so we may receive him with joy as our Redeemer, and that when when he comes to judge we may see Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, forever and ever. Amen.

Wilehelm Loehe

Dear God, we give thanks for this time when we can all be together. We give thanks for this food which is bountiful and delicious. We give thanks for this joyful holiday when we can celebrate our Savior and his love for us. With joy we pray, Amen.

— Beth McLendon

Thank you God for sending Your Son on one glorious night to be born a virgin, to live a perfect life and to die on the cross for my sins. Thank you that he rose from the dead three days later and that this Christmas and every Christmas we can celebrate the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Amen.

Be Blessed this Christmas and the whole following year.

Puzzle completed through the Jigsaw HD app.

I wanted to take a minute and remember 12 special angels this Christmas 🎄

Before I could get my head on straight in life, people I loved, passed away! Some of these people felt more like family than my own blood. Some of them I never met; but, our spirits were tenderly connected. Some of them made me feel a love that was wonderful. All of them are angels, some of my favorite yesterdays.

It’s ok to feel somber. It’s ok to feel a sense of slight sadness. We all have someone who’s chair will be empty. As long as we love them, their stories will be told. As long as memories float among us, their existence continues to be.

With much love and light,

Something many individuals enjoy, myself included, is doing puzzles! I remember my family having a huge 1100 (or maybe it was 5000?

Blogmas Day 18🎄⛪🎄

Time changes everything; but, is that so bad?

Today, I realized how much things change.

Zivah’s is top left in the blue and lime green sweater.

My daughters’ had their school Christmas concert.. 18 years after I graduated ( say what?????)

4 Major Difference with School Performances

1. Masks!!! OMG! Years ago, when people were SIGNIFICANTLY more intuned with nature’s way of operating, this government didn’t mandate such nonsense. No one “feared” standing next to a stranger who wasn’t wearing a mask.

2. Attire!! Every Christmas Concert required students to be in their dressed up best! I HATED it; but, we all look dashing! Today, kids were literally dressed from nice sweaters to tees and baggy jeans. I’m not sure why I expected the teacher to require a bit more dressy.

3. Recording!! Cell phones popped up like Sunflowers in Summer!! Crazy! I’m included! We use phones to capture moments in time, banking on Icloud or some other digital app to “store” them. I remember when I was young, my mom had one of those big Camcorders that sat on your shoulder. You recorded on VCR tapes!!

4. Concert Setting!! As you can see, the decorations in my video is made of paper… White paper… Simple snow flakes and paper chains. The stage was probably 100 yards from the bleachers. We sat on bleachers!! When I was young, nearly every school had an “auditorium”. The room would be decorated so pretty.

With Love and Light Always 💗

Blogmas Day 16🎄⛪🎄

Stories as old as time, held dear in our hearts. Whether they were fantasy, with flying dragons, or ones rooted in our family history, stories capture time.

Most of us have that moment when we gathered onto grandpa’s lap, or on either side of mom, and listened with awe. The books were probably full of adventures and images of heroes. Others taught us about morals and compassion.

This Christmas, if you do nothing else, grab a few childrens’ [Christmas/Winter/whatever] books, sit, and read to them. The words come alive. Kids’ imagination could possibly spark a fun conversation.

Here’s some that will get you started:)

1. Holidays Around the World is a 15 book series through National Geographic Kids. They have one particular book named, Celebrate Christmas. Additionally, you could choose Celebrate Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, and Diwali.

2. Here’s one that lets the kids know, exactly what do Snowmen do at Christmas.

3. The next is Mrs Wishy-Washy’s Christmas. This book is full of rhyming and lots of silliness.

4. With the Elf (on The Shelf) in all kinds of mischief, here’s a cute book to plan a capture. This is, also, one of 14 books in Adam Wallace’s How To Catch collection.

* Check out Pocket of Preschool on Pinterest *

5. Now, if you’re interested in Christian Faith Christmas books, there’s plenty of wonderful options: The Legend of the Candy Cane, The Legend of the Christmas Tree, God Gave Us Christmas, and finally, The True Gift.

Hope you enjoyed these book suggestions 🙂 I know children would love to cuddle close and listen. Books are an amazing tool to build Comprehension, Imagination, and Vocabulary, among other skills.

REMEMBER: Children will always remember how you made them feel💗

Now, something I’ve always wanted to do, visit some extravagant lit city. I want to experience Christmas in a city that’s known for it’s lights and displays, picture opportunities, and magic.

So today, here are my
