A Partridge In A Pear Tree {The Christmas Posts}

I pray that you find encouragement, inspiration and insight in whatever post you choose to read here today as we celebrate together, in our hearts, the Joy of the Season

Not “Excited” About Christmas
Every year I gain new insights and perspective about the Holidays.
Seeking to balance the skepticism of my inner Grinch and the wide-eyed child of yesteryear.
 Short, sweet and my heart so revealed in words.

Rushing to worship and finding the reason for the season, all over again.
Behold the Babe!

Christmas shopping at the mall sparks a memory for a young girl,
when she spies a beautiful medallion.

Recollection

    What a lovely set of links! I didn't get to all of them tonight, but sure agreed with your post about not being “excited” about Christmas. A needed perspective on what it means to *abide* in Him 365, not just one snowy day in December. Thanks, Dawn!

    just stopped in . . . .from I'm not sure where–but the weird thing is that I used John 3:30 in my writing today. Isn't it amazing that we are so close to one another on different levels without even knowing it!Be blessed.
