Emmanuel, God With Us! What a God We Have That He Would Come to Save Us! And...A Prayer of Salvation!


Merry Christmas, A Most Sacred Time of Year
Sending You Blessings, Joy, and Love in Christ, the Lord Jesus
 Hi, Friends!  I am re-sharing/re-releasing this posting
for Christmas 2015 and the New Year 2016!  
May you grow closer each day to the One God, Who loves you more than you or I can truly imagine at this time.  I hope you have accepted His gift of Salvation, for He is LORD!  He is loving, kind, longsuffering, merciful, trustworthy,  just, and Holy~~~forever and ever.  With Him, that is where you and I want to be for eternity!  Do not pass this moment up to commit or to re-commit to the Lord God Almighty, 
only through His Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior.  
Love came down that Christmas-time in Bethlehem over 2,000 years ago!  
He came to teach us, to love us, and to show us the Way, through the total sacrifice of Himself for our sins because He is the only Perfect Lamb of God- Jesus is fully God and fully Man, and He is interceding for you and your loved ones now in Heaven on High!  
The Holy Spirit of God comes to indwell your life when you accept Christ as your Living Savior- 
the Living Water and Bread of Life!  
I have put a ***Prayer of Salvation for you to say for Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior now and forever; it is located toward the very bottom of this posting.  When your life here on earth ends one day, you will go to Heaven and live fully alive without fear, illness, accidents, heartbreak, starvation, sadness, but with all of the remarkable and lovely things we can only imagine, as God meant from the beginning for us when your mortal life here is over.  Right now and continuing onward you are in the Kingdom of God, and you will begin to grow and to be able to see the things of the Lord in a more blessed, assured, and enlightened way!  You can pray directly to God the Father. He will give you insights through the Bible and His fellowship; He will guard and protect you in even more ways.  God bless you!  Always know you can talk to the Lord God at any time about anything; ask Him for your needs; praise Him for the good things you do have.  
(We are to praise Him in all things, and I see this more and more...please read
Romans 8:28, or go a little farther with +++Romans 8:28-31, See below.)  
For Salvation and to walk with God each day, you can read the prayer from your heart with your true intention, or~~~ just tell Him in your own words that you believe His Son Jesus died on the cross for you, ask Him to forgive your sins, and tell the Lord you commit your life to Him...
Waiting for the Promise

 I love the way


Everything just stops

For a little while

At Christmas…

All of the craziness

Ceases,

And we bow down

To worship

Our Lord and King, Jesus.


It’s so soundlessly

Beautiful,

As we all stop

To stare

At the newborn Savior

Of heaven and earth.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Sweet little Dove


From heaven above:

Come down, from on high,

To prove Yourself King,

By and by.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Shepherds and knowing kings

Still follow Him.

(Written about my mother in her last few years.  Now, she is in Glory forever, basking in the Love and Light of Jesus.  Oh, how Royce and I miss our parents, but they are at their very best in age, appearance, ability to do ALL that is there to do and to enjoy! with no problems of any kind...we would never want to call them back from that, not would we be able to do so.) 

She was so weak in her circumstance,

Yet she sought the knowledge- the Word – of her Lord,

And she sought His desire for her life in prayer.

So the Savior gave her His comfort, strength, and love.
What more could she ask of Him?

Perfection in Snow


Being together on

a snowy day,

From within~ peeking outside,

Just beyond the door.

What do we see?


White, fluffy snowflakes,

Floating from the sky

Down and around us.

Peace. Comfort. Love.

That is how it feels


With family,

When snuggled in

Together.


While the snowstorm
Gently surrounds us,


From celestial heights,

Safety and comfort
From God reside.

Only He can make us secure
In complete white;

His Season has arrived.

It is sure,

And all is perfection.

The Wee Babe

From so far above,
Came down to reign
In our hearts with His love.
A new heart so tiny,
Yet with everlasting Life,
As He lay in the manger,
His life would be one of sacrifice.
Knowing our weakness~
He knew before time,
It must be that he would die for us,
Little Lamb of God sublime.
That night in the barn,
Stars, shepherds near,
Kings from afar;
Angels did, indeed, prepare them all.
The Bethlehem star, above in the east,
Was set by God’s Hand

As His ultimate timepiece.

With You

Those utterly most precious moments

Just with You~
Serene or full-tilt,
There’s nothing that compares.
Oh, how I covet those sweetest moments
If they are only for a few seconds-
Eyes filling with tears of Joy


I guess because I get a hint of the Love

You feel for me…and for all of us.

Such supreme happiness and appreciation,
Because: You have healed me.
You have been there even when I
Did not know it through the tough times.
You have shown me friendship in like-minded and the needy.
You have given me the most beautiful Jesus as my Savior

And the Holy Spirit to comfort and guide me…

Because: You Love me.

Thank You, Lord!

“Know therefore that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His loving kindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments…

Deuteronomy 7:9

***A Prayer of Salvation
Dear Father in Heaven, I know that you cannot have sin for you are completely holy. You are also patient and long-suffering, kind and loving. You made me because you simply want me to be made in Your image so that we can have a genuine, loving relationship together.
I have fallen short, made mistakes, and sinned many times. You know that I am not perfect and cannot be perfect in this world, but I do want to say, "Yes, Lord!" I believe in You, Jesus, as my personal Lord and Savior. Please come into my life and make me a new creation. I know you love me more than I can fully understand at this time, and You can help me to grow and to live in your will for my life. I want to live always with You, not separated for eternity. Thank You,
In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Jesus said:

“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that. But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect."

Matthew 5:43-48

The Healing is Always Christ, "From Crib to Cross to Crown"



+++"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?" 
Romans 8: 28-31, NKJV

We are the most blessed people on the face of the earth and forever~~~ because we have 
Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, always!
