I got a message earlier this week from a friend inquiring about “journaling” gifts and asking for my suggestions. She gave me a brief description of who she was buying for and wondered what I would specifically recommend.

Well, shopping with other people’s money is my joy! Even if only in my head. Opinions I have, and opinions I share. So, since this is a question I get often, I have decided to share some of my very favorite repeat purchase products for journaling.

I’ll catch my planner people with another post.

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:7

Life isn’t all about laundry.

Think about that statement for a minute. Say it out loud. Let it roll across your lips as you stand surveying the piles of unsorted colors and whites surrounding you.

But, sometimes it feels like life is exactly  one endless laundry marathon, doesn’t it?

A Holiday Meditation for All Seasons

We have so many things to be thankful for each and every day. But, today, as I reflected on the miracles I have witnessed  this year, the prayers answered and God’s goodness I felt led to read 2 Peter 1:3-4. Maybe God knew I needed this reminder, as we head into “The Most Wonderful Time of The Year”. He who created me knows me well, leads me faithfully and fulfills all my longings. Sometimes He does it by allowing words to be offered as a reminder of His indwelling presence,reaffirming the beautiful truths handed down to me…us all.

 

I pray these words, bless you and offer up encouragement for the approaching “season”. I struggled with the title a bit, and at last it came to me…this was not just a  “Holiday Meditation”, or a prayer for the assault to come from within and without through retailers, marketing media, and our own fleshly desires, but truly a meditation for all seasons.

 

God bless you this holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving!

May He be your contentment and joy!

A meditation from my morning Bible reading …I actually wrote this earlier this week as I read and pondered  1 John- one of my favorite letters in the New Testament.

May you be blessed as you read my offering and as you also seek the Living Word today.
