Jesus is the reason for the season words

Todays Verse: And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. Luke 2:15

Todays Goal: Get alone! Take some time out of your day today to just sit quietly! Listen to the sounds around you, listen for Gods voice, notice the little things God wants to tell you. We need to take breaks now and again to refresh our minds and quiet our spirits and meditate on God and His love for us.   Psalm 46:10a says: Be still, and know that I am God: The best way to renew our spirits is to just listen!

Something special to do: I found a really neat idea to do with all those Christmas cards we get every year. If you save them by the year, that will help, or if you just want to start this  year, you can do that to. But, the idea is easy. You just take a hole punch and punch 2 holes making sure all your cards are punched in the same place and connect them all together with clasping metal rings. I am going to make covers for mine with some heavy cardstock and decorate them with the dates on them. This may even be a great idea for birthday cards too!

    Another “Today’s Goal” I seem to particularly like… ahhh, alone time!! And the Vanilla Wafer Cookies sound like the coziest thing in the world for my alone time 🙂

      Yes, alone time, it is definately needed. The cookies are really, really easy to make too, they are great warm (or cold), but I love them right after I bake them!! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a great day!!
