Dear Reader, you're invited to a celebration!
A celebration of our Savior's birth. In the weeks ahead, during Advent, we'll prepare our spirits to receive the greatest gift the world will ever see.
We only have a couple of big events in our home each year, Thanksgiving and our Friends and Family Tea in the spring. I'd love to do evites, but worry they will go to SPAM. What's a gal to do?
Thankfully, the Lord of All Creation wasn't concerned about a lack of technology when He was planning the birth of His only Son.
Word of mouth may not have gotten the word to the kings of the east. No big deal! Let's create a star to guide them exactly to the spot.
...and lo, the starwhich they had seen in the East went before them, till it came to rest over the place where the child was.
Not a prob! The heavenly host was probably tickled pink to go off-site for a gig.
And have you thought about this, Dear Reader? Every time a heavenly messenger shows up in Scripture, including the donkey (but that's another story), they always spoke in the language of the one to receive the message. Is God amazing, or what?
8 And in that region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people; 11 for to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
Luke 2: 8-11 RSV
It doesn't matter where you are, or what you're doing, the Lord can always reach you. And, BONUS, you don't have to have any "bars" to get in touch with Him.
In the same way, my words leave my mouth,
and they don’t come back without results.
My words make the things happen that I want to happen.
They succeed in doing what I send them to do.
Isaiah 55:11 ERV
