Hello Christmas... And a prayer...

Like most of the country, we are traveling to visit family before Christmas. We've left the frigid part of one part of the country, to go to a snow covered area that is expecting a warm front - who knew? I want to be out taking pictures of the snow blanketed woods before it all melts off... But there are grand kids to hold and grown kids to talk to and I just don't want to miss this, THIS, for a few good photo opportunities...

Lord, change my heart and make me sensitive to where You want me to be. Help me to see You and feel You - in the clutter of my grand kids hugs and in the solitude of the silent, moon lot night.

Help us to remember that this season is not just about the tinsel, the gifts and lights, but about the stable, the silence if the stars and the rejoicing angels... We praise You for sending Jesus to earth... Happy Birthday to our Saviour!

I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
