Good evening everyone! Welcome tonight, to the Heart to Heart Blog! I was going back and forth in my mind, as to whether I would write tonight; but for some reason, which is only known to God; I felt that there just may be someone out there tonight, who could use a friend and a little word of encouragement…so here I am.
Today was a very pleasant day for me, as my husband and I celebrated the birthday of a great and mighty King. I used to have someone over from time to time for Christmas; but as my health has changed a lot over the years, my husband and I find it very relaxing, to just sit together…have a nice meal and spend some time with Jesus…and that’s just what we did today.
As I woke up this morning, it was a beautiful morning! In fact…last night was beautiful too because it began to snow last night, on Christmas Eve…and even into Christmas morning. I don’t know about you; but I just love lying in bed…and watching it snow outside! What a way to relax and get to sleep!
When I woke up this morning, what a beautiful winter wonderland! The trees were iced in snow and the snow sparkled all around the backyard…outside my office window. Somehow, I felt that God was enjoying His Son’s birthday with us, as He was celebrating, with beautiful crystals of snow…falling from the heavens.
After getting around and enjoying my morning off, I went into the kitchen and prepped a turkey for the oven. Between the smell of the turkey cooking in the oven and the leftover smell of wood burning in the fireplace from last night, it felt like I was in a little log cabin in the woods, which made Christmas seem even more special.
You know…I’ve come to see how I can find great value, in the little things of life. It doesn’t take an expensive home, with a lot of things, to bring a smile to my face. All I need, is to experience the hand of God, at work within my life…and from there, nothing else seems to matter but that.
One of the things that I truly enjoyed today though, was just putting my feet up in the living room and having a nice talk with my husband, rather than always having my mind on overload. As the Christmas music played throughout the living room, while we ate…and the snow glistened thru the windows, my heart was at peace.
As we gave the complete day to Jesus, I could feel His presence, as my husband and I spent time in His word. You know…for the longest time, I always felt that I had to have things a certain way in my life…but not anymore because you see, I have found that if all I have is Jesus; then I have everything I could ever ask for.
Even as my husband and I did our dishes together and visited, there was a pleasant feeling in the air…a peace that made me feel, as if Jesus was walking thru our home, on this very special day.
I hope that you too, had your own special day and most of all, I hope that you truly experienced Jesus in your Christmas! Well…it’s time for me to go and relax…before beginning a new day of work with God. I hope you have a great night of rest and may God’s peace become a blanket of love, to comfort you thru your night…and I also hope that you will come back tomorrow night, as I share another day with you, along with the goodness of a great…loving and powerful God…heart to heart!
Blessings on your evening!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
