Hello friends, how was your week? I pray it was a ‘slowing down’ rather than a ‘speeding frenzy’ although for some of you, I suspect the latter.  Today it’s a chilly, but sunny 14° in my neck of the woods, with a few inches of snow on the ground, from a recent snow storm.  It is cold; it feels like 3° for all those who dare go outside in this temperature.  As for me, it is a wonderful 70° from where I’m sitting near the window.  I love the winter season for the inside looking out. I think the snow is absolutely beautiful, as it gently and softly falls to the ground.  There is a silence that only the snow can bring with it; it feels almost like a cuddly, soft blanket.  

The snow reminds me of this old hymn, we would sing at our church called, ‘Whiter than Snow’.  Indeed, the reflection of the sun on the snow can be so bright, it is blinding.  There is such a stark difference between the snow and the dirt lying beneath.  

Forgiveness; how positively cleansing and freeing.  Salvation brings such beauty and joy; what a precious gift from the God, of the Universe, Himself! In this gift giving season, we’re not only on the giving end, we also have been given free gifts from the Lord.  We just have to keep our hands and hearts open to receive them.  

These are gifts that are abundant and eternal and the best part; it’s free.  The gifts of peace, joy and hope have been wrapped beautifully , just for you this Christmas season.  Do you want it? 

What are your plans for Christmas?

Let’s continue the conversation over on Instagram. Follow my Instagram and I will follow back, just let me know in the comment section. I would love to meet you 🙂

Success! You're on the list.

  1. It’s 35° Celsius here at the moment Brenda in our hot Aussie summer. So we will have our combined family picnic at the waterfront Christmas Eve with the cool Sea breeze.
    Then Christmas day lunch in air conditioning!
    Merry Christmas,

  2. This weekend is going to be a busy one for us (having a family friend over on Saturday, my parents are coming Sunday, then some friends are coming over on Monday…phew!), but then I am hoping Christmas itself should be fairly low-key. Christmas at the house and then going to my mother-in-law’s for more presents and dinner. Hoping you and yours have a wonderful Christmas! God Bless!

  3. I enjoyed reading your post. This Christmas will be different for me and my family because it will be our first Christmas without my mom; however, I’m being intentional on letting go of what was and embracing the new chapter I am entering into. That’s my gift to myself! Thanks for sharing your excitement about the holidays with us some of us really need that pick-me up🙏

  4. Beautiful truth Brenda!! I love this message..and Whiter Than Snow is a fav hymn of mine!!
    We’ll do our usual Christmas tradition, make our rounds to grandparents houses! This year I’ve been doing lots of extra baking which isn’t my forte but it’s been fun to experiment and everything has turned out tasty so I’d say it’s been worth while!❤️
