Preparing for Him...

Here I am a little earlier than yesterday! It is a beautiful, sunny day here in northern Michigan... we do have the ground covered with snow but it has melted some over the last couple days! I am trying to get myself organized with decorating, gifts and baking, but I am feeling a tad scattered! No stress, right? No stress!

Over the last few months I have really felt like God was giving me the message of "patience and perseverance"... in the last few days He has also added "preparation."  He is giving me a chance to get my mind, spirit and home prepared for the next step, but I was also thinking of how He wants each one of us to get our hearts prepared for Christ's coming.  He is patiently waiting, but we have to remember... He will not wait forever.  Praying His peace... His strength... and His comfort over you as you make preparation!

Ok, here is the second Christmas card class card... did I say "card" a lot??? *Ü*

The wonder of the first Christmas!

"In the morning You hear my voice, O Lord; in the morning I prepare [a prayer, a sacrifice] for You and watch and wait [for You to speak to my heart]." Psalms 5:3
