Jesus is the reason for the season words

Todays Verse: And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. Luke 2:20

Todays Goal: Just a simple reminder today, if you haven’t finished mailing your Christmas cards, today would be a good day to make sure they are already to go into the mail by tomorrow so that they arrive in time for Christmas.

Something Special to do: We can’t forget the birds!!! An idea to include the birds for Christmas is give them a tasty treat gift. Not only will the birds be happy but so will your Christmas spirit be happy watching these feathered friends eat the treats you set out for them. Here is a couple of ideas to make these treats. 1. Find a few pinecones and hang a string on it, plaster it with peanut butter and hang on the tree. 2. Day old bagels are great with peanut butter smeared all over them and then rolled in birdseed, oh don’t forget the string! 3. String some popcorn (unbuttered of course) and hang on a tree or bush. You could string cranberries with it too, birds love berries! 4. take a wooden kabob stick and thread raisins onto it and put a string on it and hang it in the tree. Okay, now your turn, any ideas on feeding the birds for Christmas?
