Joy to the World

Twelfth Day of Advent 2013

“…He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy.” (Acts 14:16b NIV)

Day 6 arrangementChristmas is a time of reflection…a time to look back and see all that God has done for us. He has provided rain for crops so we have food. He has provided jobs, shelter, family, and friends. He has provided the very air we breathe. Even if you lack some or most of these things, God can fill your heart with joy.

What enables the misfortunate to sing God’s praises and capable of achieving their goals?

Enjoy the sounds of Christmas as you prepare for Jesus’ second coming.

See you in a twinkling,
