This poem for you today fresh from my morning journal.

May it bless you today as we come close to the day we celebrate the birth of our Savior and Lord, Jesus. Emmanual – God’s desire has always been to be with us…

may our heart’s turn to Him!

 

Look up, consider the stars…Have a blessed and beautiful holiday- may you be truly free and able to celebrate in a spirit of love and grace. God with us.

 

I hope the poem helps you draw near.

I have a short list of favorite writers. That might surprise you, but it shouldn’t…because when your favorite Author is God, it makes you rather persnickety.
