"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house." Matthew 5:14-15

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it." Matthew 13:45-46

Two Days Till Christmas

" For to us a child is born,
   to us a son is given,
   and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
   Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
   Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
 Of the greatness of his government and peace
   there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
   and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
   with justice and righteousness
   from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the LORD Almighty
   will accomplish this." Isaiah 9:6-7

Each day my son reminds me of how many days it is until Christmas. I guess we started advent calendars when our boys were quite small. I don't even remember how long it's been. It's a tradition in our family, as we prepare our hearts to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior.

With our 'to do' lists, it's so easy to get caught up in the busyness of the season. At times I need to stop myself, and remember the reason why we rejoice. I pray each of you experience the depth of God's love in a new and special way this Christmas. He is the reason for our hope. We are nothing without Him.

Merry Christmas!
