My desire is to be intentional, daily, to remember that this “HOLIDAY” season is not about shopping, parties, decorations, and elves on a shelf…it is about the ONE who came in LOVE to save.
I am thankful for sisters in Christ, who provide help in being intentional..to rise above the earthly “bent” of “Holiday Celebrations”
Jennie Allen and her band of sisters, provide a great resource to start each day in preparation of the coming of our King…our Savior…the One who now sits at the Right hand of God, interceding on our behalf. I love this prayer below, taken from IF EQUIP’s December 3rd Advent post.
Advent = Arival:)
O God of all the prophets, you herald the coming of the Son of Man by wondrous signs in the heavens and on the earth. Guard our hearts from despair so that we, in the company of the faithful and by the power of your Holy Spirit, may be found ready to raise our heads at the coming near of our redemption, the day of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Praying for us each to keep our focus on the One…that instead of looking down, or in, we raise our heads to look up….to see the Fulness of His Glory- rooted in the GREAT Love of Christ.
Bless You!*as a side note…
my husband calls me a “scrapper”

I am soooooo technically challenged, and I scratch and claw my way through to figure out ways to improve my blog appearance and how to better post images…
You would laugh if you saw my current process of using my phone to take photos and then sending them to by email…downloading and then using pic monkey to try and lighten them enough to see…I am in SUCH a PROCESS of learning…trying to figure things out on my own. I have watched countless tutorials on Illustrator, Pixelmator, etc. Oh, how I wish I had taken courses in graphic design:)
Today, I just realized that when I go to my downloaded image I can actually use a magic wand within my computer’s image tools to take away the background. It’s still not clean, it’s missing my shading, but no gray background! hahahaha….hope you got a laugh today:)
