Happy New Year

Hello everyone I truly pray that you all had a wonderful blessed Christ filled Christmas, I know we did and im tuly so grateful for that {Thank you Jesus} but most importantly my 4 year old son understood why we celebrate Christmas, He understood we were celebrating Jesus's birthday and that is awesome.
Now I have to admit I started putting some Christmas decor away! the day after Christmas but to be honest I want my house back! I cant be the only person thats thnking this right?
Wow can you believe it already going to be 2012! boy this year went really fast for my family,I was thinking about all the (new years resolutions) Iv heard these past few weeks from friends and family, So I started thinking about what mine were and I have to say I could only think of just one That really mattered, sure there were a few other things that popped into mind but only one that really mattered in life! and that was a deeper, stronger relationship with Christ, and thats when this beautiful verse popped into mind ~Take dilight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart Psalms 37:4  isnt God promises awesome ! not only will he give us the desires of our hearts, but he gives us the peace as we wait or the strenght to get where we need,  As we put God first in our lives everything else seem to fall into place! of course in his timing, but He is so faithful to get us where we need to be as we call on to him  Jer 33:3 Says  Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. Amen
Happy Birthday Jesus!!!
Happy New Year !!!!!

20 But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.” 

Hello every body pray your monday was a grate start of this week, and was just wondering what are some of the things you do during this Christmas season  with your famiy to glorify and celebrate the birth Jesus, now I know we do alot of crafts and activitys etc... but im talking about thoughs sweet traditions that just glorify the birth of JESUS
I would love to know and learn and hear about some sweet ideas:)  and of course share some pretty cool things we enjoy doing as well

Here are a few of them

  • interactive nativity set, we have them take turns everyday opening one box and my husband explains and reads to them who each person is and there importants 
  • We do a study on the real  meaning of the Candy Cane  
Look at the Candy Cane
What do you see?
Stripes that are red
                                             Like the blood shed for me 
White is for my Savior
Who's sinless and pure!
                                 "J" is for Jesus My Lord, that's for sure! 

Turn it around
        And a staff you will see
  Jesus my shepherd
  Was born for Me

  • We make gifts for neighbors and friend and as we make them we explain that we are showing a small bit of the love of Jesus
  • we also make a nativity set out of Popsicle sticks Ill be sharing on that on my other blog this week 
  • We read some very special childerns books about the Birth of Christ 
  • When we pray we Thank the Lord that we Get to celebrate his beautiful birthday 
  • And last but not lest my personal fav we make a birthday cake for Jesus every year so that on Christmas day we lite the candals and sing Happy Birthday to JESUS!!!!!!! Yay I love~love ~love doing this, last year was our first time but thats because we moved and my sweet hubbys grandma made that cake every year and we would all sing happy birthday to JESUS I loved it since the first time I seen his family do it, I asked my Thomas do you all do this every year???

Just want to share some poems I found ;) so pretty

If the world were full of Christians
who studied their Bible daily,
who really did believe
God’s commands applied to them,
who put what they learned
in God’s Holy Word into practice,
their actions reflecting that Word,
then earth would be close to heaven.
If the world were full of Christians
who knew that being a Christian
is more than going to church,
who lived their lives according to God’s will,
service to Him their main purpose,
who practiced Jesus’ teachings
every day, with everyone they met,
loving and helping their neighbors,
then the earth would be a place
of heavenly harmony and peace.
By Joanna Fuchs

I’m Trying, But…
I’m trying, but…
what I want to do,
I don’t do enough of,
and what I don’t want to do,
I do too much of.
I know the rules for a Christian life,
according to the Bible,
and I’m trying; I really am, but…
heaven and eternity seem so far away,
and the rampantly materialistic world
presses in so close
from every direction, every side,
that I get distracted.
Focus, focus, focus!
I need to focus, laser-like
on a simple, God-centered life.
Do I really need
to make that frivolous purchase,
instead of giving the money
to someone who needs it
so much more than I do?
Can I watch that TV show,
read that book, listen to that song
that contains (and promotes!)
even a little bit
of what the Bible forbids,
without being corrupted?
Do I do enough
to love and help and encourage others?
Pride always hovers,
eagerly waiting
to subdue and conquer humility,
so I think too much of myself.
I know the rules;
the Bible makes everything clear.
Forgive me, Lord;
I’m trying, but…

Romans 7:15
Matthew 6:19
Matthew 22:39
Philippians 4:8

Hope U liked them as much as i did they blessed my heart
Have a blessed weekend
