Christmas preparations

Christmas preparations

December 18, 2013


This week's challenge is Christmas preparations, selected by Lew.  Check out my  pals for their  interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.

 It's a little bit late in posting.  Sorry 'bout that.

 There are many ways people prepare for Christmas.  My favorite way is to think about the first Christmas, and especially the way God's faithful people were supposed to prepare for Messiah's coming.  They were in prayerful anticipation, and sought to have their hearts ready to receive the promised Lord and King.  He came, died and rose from the grave... and he's coming again.  So I wait with eager anticipation for his return.
