In The First Light

Luke 2

The Birth of Jesus

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.

(This was the first census that took place

while Quirinius was governor of Syria.)

And everyone went to his own town to register.

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David,

because he belonged to the house and line of David.

He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.

While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born,

and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

The Shepherds and the Angels
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, "Do not be afraid.

I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.

Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you;

he is Christ the Lord.

This will be a sign to you:

You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel,

praising God and saying,

"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests
When the angels had left them and gone into heaven,

the shepherds said to one another,

"Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened,

which the Lord has told us about."

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.
When they had seen him,

they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child,

and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.

But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.

The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

Praise God we have a Saviour!!

Big Hills....

The calender on my desk says we have 10 more days until January 1, 2010.
Another new beginning....
another chance.
I'm taking this time to write down some goals for the new year.
The first one will be to forgive myself
~~~~not perfect yet~~~
never will be.
I can be more

(I took this photo yesterday with my NEW Camera!!!!!)

This biker is a tiny dot in the first picture

Not a tiny feat...big hill

It took this rider a good while to make it to the top

no time to glide back down....

then he would head back up again, and again

Such a good feeling to accomplish a goal!

I'm dedicated to my goal of keeping my weight down

and trying to make wise choices

Still, I can do more...

"I can do all things though Christ

who strengthens me"...

A brand new year...

Fresh overs...

Good feeling!

Cleaning House 2009

Just received this from my friend Nancy....

Last Week I threw out worrying,
it was getting old and in the way.

It kept me from being me;
I couldn't do things God's way.

I threw out a book on MY PAST
(Didn't have time to read it anyway).

Replaced it with NEW GOALS,
started reading it today.

I threw out hate and bad memories,
(Remember how I treasured them so)?

Got me a NEW PHILOSOPHY too,
threw out the one from long ago.

Brought in some new books too,
called I CAN, I WILL, and I MUST.

Threw out I might, I think and I ought.
WOW, you should've seen the dust.

I ran across an OLD FRIEND,
I hadn't talked to in a while.

His name is GOD the Father,
and I really like His style.

He helped me to do some cleaning
and added some things Himself.

Yes... I placed them right on the shelf.

I picked up this special thing
and placed it at the front door..

it's called PEACE..
Nothing gets me down anymore.

Yes, I've got my house looking nice.

Looks good around the place.

For things like Worry and Trouble
there just isn't any space.

It's good to do a little house cleaning,
Get rid of the things on the shelf.

It sure makes things brighter;
maybe you should

May the Lord open the windows
of heaven and pour
out a blessing
that you will not have room enough to receive it all.

May the Lord bless you
exceedingly abundantly
above all you could ever hope for.

Packin my bags.....

Here we come.....
Destin awaits!

~~~~~~~~~~~Home will be waiting too~~~~~~~~

Fom My Home to yours....

Merry Christmas!!
