It's Friday, it's Christmas AND Jesus is Coming!

Hi Everyone - Merry Christmas!!

It's Christmas Eve and I am at work - yes, the company I work at is open all day, so, being at the reception desk I am duty-bound to be here. I have not been happy about this...pretty much talking & complaining about this for most of the week. Prior to the company's reorg, it would close at noon on Christmas Eve. So, how could a company expect employees to be here working when there are preparations to be done, and how am I going to fit church in, all this "stuff" to do, etc. Needless to say, I was not focused on Jesus and what I could do while I'm here, sitting at work, no one else around.

Until...God got a hold of my heart today....

Reading today's, Encouragement For Today, devotional from Proverbs 31 Ministries put it back in focus for me. I really got excited -- something clicked for me! This is my time to focus on Jesus. We will be hosting Jesus in our home - it's Christmas!

We are celebrating His arrival!

He is our our hearts!!

Christmas is a party for Him, our King!

In the last minute "to dos" take time to not only usher Jesus in to His celebration, but, sit at His feet and allow yourself to be "wrapped" in His love-gift for you. Revel at Who He Is, dwell in His Presence, sense His Peace and proclaim His Joy. We are so honored -- our King is coming! Our King IS coming!! Let us not forget or ignore Him because of the days distractions.

Joy to the world the Lord has come!
Christmas blessings ~ Love, Jodie & Grant
