Let It Shine!







Countless people all over the world are living in a deep darkness caused by the many things that have them bound.

I’m so grateful for Jesus and the marvelous light that he pours into the hearts of those who put their trust in him alone.

Are you ready to carry that same light into the darkness of your communities, work place, and families?

I can’t think of a better time than during this season as we celebrate the birth of Christ.   His purpose is our purpose, and His light is our light.  What better gift is their to give someone you truly care about than the gift of Gods light found only in the person of Jesus Christ.

Blessings to you and your family this Christmas as we celebrate the Light that has come into the world!!


Join us today for more word-filled posts over at the Café!

This is perfect "His purpose is our purpose, and His light is our light. What better gift is their to give someone you truly care about than the gift of Gods light found only in the person of Jesus Christ." Lord, I pray that what burdens your heart will burden mine. That your desires will also be my desires...especially at Christmastime! Beautiful photos!

Sweet blessings Susan,

What a beautiful cross ornamnet to hang on your tree, reminding you, yours and now us... of the Light that we celebrate this CHRISTmas!

Blessed are we who know and receive!

How very true your message! May each of us shine brightly as you do, to others in the dark around us. May they come to know Him! May We always show His Light to lighten and break the chains that bound so many!

God's greatest GIFT and blessing to you and all of your precious ones as you celebrate and rejoice for His Presence around your tree and home shining Jesus with a Merry Christmas to one and to all!

Thank you.
Peace and love,

He truly is the Light, and this is a wonderful reminder that we are to carry that light to others. It is my desire to reflect our Lord and King to others. I am not participating in WFW today, but I want to thank you for stopping by my blog last week. I am sorry it took so long for me to reply.

Many blessings to you this Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you & your family!

Always lifting up prayers!
Psalms 73:25-26 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

Beautiful ornament and devotion!

Know that I'm still here praying!
Psalms 40:1-4 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
