I am going to be honest with you.
I don’t feel like posting these posts each day.
I am forcing myself to do it.
Forcing myself to take that step toward Christ this season
even though every fiber of my being is pulling me away
to be depressed and grouchy.
That is why I HAVE to do it!
I NEED it for myself!
I am posting today’s post because it is me
I am speaking to.
All of them are selfishly pointed to ME for me!
Come to Christ, JEN when life’s trials feel
So if my posts seem a bit too cheery or honey coated
it is because I am holding on for dear life to the One, I know can help me through.
My Savior JESUS CHRIST
So…bear with me through the season
and if you are feeling the same way…come, let’s hold on together!
Keeping Christ in Christmas in bits and pieces:
Happy Friday Dec. 6th
Something to hum today: “Oh Come…”
Oh Come All Ye Faithful
J. Reading 1692
To “come” means to be a part of, to be gathered, to be included.
Jesus doesn’t casually say “come,” he gently invites us to “Come follow me.”
Application: Invite someone you love, you care about, you think about, you are concerned about to “come” be with you. The importance is “the gathering”– not what you do. Togetherness is the important part. Make that appointment today for tonight, for tomorrow, for next week, for next month….
Come for a walk
Come for a Christmas story on my lap
Come over for a simple lunch
Come, let’s get an ice cream
Come for a back rub
Come sit on the couch and watch a Christmas show together.
Come, so I can listen to you.
Come go caroling with us.
Just come as you are…
As you light your little candle at the dinner table tonight talk about how
Jesus Christ has room for everyone! We’re all invited…. to come!
“Come unto Christ and be perfected in him.” Moroni 10:32
For yourself: Come kneel at your bedside and show that no matter what, you will come!

small things can lead to significant
