Ma’s Christmas Tip for Today:
Joy to Your World
Share the Christmas message with everyone who visits your home. Cut gold or silver shimmer fabric into squares. Place several wrapped candies and a copy of a holiday verse such as Isaiah 9:6, Luke 2:11, or Matthew 1:21 inside. Then tie the squares up with sparkly ribbon. Keep a basket of these favors by your front door to bestow on your visitors
I’ve done this in previous years and everyone was delighted to get the little package. I found some decorative little bags and put them in those. I still have a few left over…Maybe someone will stop by this year.
Here is our Christmas Candle
A gift for your family to share
Let it lighten up your season
And spread gladness in the air
It is hoped that you’ll enjoy
A special season full of fun
And love will burn more brightly
When your holiday is done.
Today is National Roof Over Your Head Day.
I do love trivia and I found today’s on one of my favorite sites
It is a day of appreciation for the things we have, starting with the roof over our heads.
For most of us, a roof over our head signifies living in a house that protects us from the elements, keeping us warm, dry, and cozy. Unfortunately, not everyone is as lucky as you and I. There are many homeless people right here in our country. Some people live in a cardboard box on the street...... literally. There are millions of people around the world who live in poverty or disaster areas, and do not have a home to keep them comfortable and safe.
Spend a few minutes appreciating your roof and home today, along with the many things you have.
While they were there, the time came for her to have her child, and she gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
This time of year more than any other we need to remember in prayer, and maybe even a donation, those that have no home.
