{joyeux noël}

"and mary said, 'behold, i am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.' and the angel departed from her."
-luke 1:38

let us have the courage and faith that mary had.
do not faint, or grow weary, "for nothing will be impossible with God."

{cannot be contained}

"but will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain you; how much less this house that i have built!"
-1 kings 8:27

our God cannot be contained in this universe. He is so much more than any human mind will ever comprehend.

so, if He lives in our hearts, what does that tell us? how could we, selfish humans, possibly not be continually pouring Him out unto others? if you truly have the joy of the Lord within you, how could you dare to contain it? we should be exploding with His love, and shinning as bright lights to all. at all times.

{rejoice, rejoice}

oh come, oh come, Emmanuel, 
and ransom captive israel, 
that mourns in lonely exile here 
until the Son of God appear. 
rejoice! rejoice! Emmanuel 
shall come to you, o israel!

she is funny and i love her laugh.
she gives me hugs and reads me scripture when i'm down. 
she is a beautiful friend, and  
i am blessed to know her.

"two are better than one, because they have a good 
reward for their toil. for if they fall, one will lift his fellow up."

{this day and onward}

"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."
-hebrews 13:8 

He never changes, but gives us the chance to do so every day.
no one knows how many more days they have here on earth.
that doesn't matter though.
all that matters is that we use every second of the time that we do have to glorify His name.
the past is gone, it's dust.
whatever it held is no more.
today is a new day, so live it in a way pleasing to the Lord.

looks like jack paid us a visit. 
when i saw the frost and the sun 
shining down in it, i couldn't 
help but to run and get my camera 
and take some photos.

"the Lord knows the thoughts of man, that they are but a breath."
psalm 94:11
