Christmas Brightness

"WE ARE THE FIRST!" My husband boasted. Yes we are the first on our block to have our Christmas lights up. He was looking for a challenge and this was it. Amid the dirty stares of neighbours driving by he sang jingle bells and untangled and hooked up those beautiful red, white and green bulbs of brightness.

It was a bit dark and dreary these past few days, but no more bah humbugs here. I am ready for the season because it's time to celebrate something I had temporarily forgotten.

 "The Lord my Shepherd guards me well, and all my wants are fed: Amid green pastures made to lie, beside still waters led. My careworn soul grows strong and whole when God’s true path I tread. Though I should walk in darkest ways, through valleys like the grave, no evil shall I ever fear; your presence makes me brave. On my behalf Your rod and staff assure me You will save." McCasland goes on to say; "No matter what you're facing today, Jesus knows your name, He knows the danger, and He will not leave your side. You can say with confidence: The Lord my Shepherd guards me well." Psalm 23(paraphrased),  from Our Daily Bread.

"The virgin will be pregnant. She will have a son, and they will name him Immanuel," which means"God is with us." Matthew 1:23(NCV)

May I never forget.

 Rene is done with our Christmas lights... so he has time to help you with yours.
If you find yourself a little busy this season and need some help just call Sister Spade and Brother Odd @ 604-505-3755 and ask for Rene (he may even sing a carol or two).

Nehemiah 8: 10
Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”

The joy of the Lord is your strength... may you be filled with peace and joy today!
