O Come All Ye Faithful

“O come, all ye faithful…
joyful and triumphant…”

Celine Dion’s voice came to my ears.
And a smile flooded my face.
Tonight I was just sitting here listening to Celine Dion, grateful and joyfully enjoying my “night off”. How nice it is to do absolutely nothing for a change. =)
Celine Dion sang her usual love songs, flailing her gorgeous voice into the silent night air. And I hummed along and fake sung where I felt it appropraite. =)
And then all at once…

“O come, all ye faithful…
joyful and triumphant…”
goose bumps.
Christmas is fast approaching. I absolutely love this time of year. Not the shopping craze, or the santas on every street corner, or the gift exchanges.
No, none of that… not for that reason.
See, it’s in this season that I get to sit back and reflect on the amazing glory of our Lord first coming to this earth. Can you imagine Mary’s face when she saw God’s Promise placed in her own arms? Joseph? The Angels? The shepherds? What joy, what amazement and what utter awe must have struck everyone, every living thing to see that little babe.
I can’t wait for Christmas.
That’s my Savior! That’s Christ the Lord!
“O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,


Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.
