In the rush to get ready for Christmas, all the decorating, baking and shopping I sometimes forget that what this is all leading up to is the birth of a baby. A baby born to die for us all to save us.
This year I am spending more time thinking of this and wondering if I am preparing properly for His coming. I decided that I was going to give something away every day this Advent season, much like the UK bloggers are. There aren't as many places to give things away here, but I am going to try and vary things as much as possible.
So far I have given to the Salvation Army here in Estevan a cup cake display, a tray that a person puts pictures in, a mail tray, a hang up mail sorter, a lovely kit to make marble coasters, a box of exercise cards along with an elastic band to do them with, and a Christmas turntable. I am hoping that the Salvation Army can make a bit on these items to help fund their various projects.
I am think I will take some books to the hospital so that they can add them to their library as my next preparation. They always seem to need reading material for their residents....
I have also started my prayer time again everyday. This has fallen by the wayside lately and I can feel the difference in my life. I need that personal relationship and talk with God and our saviour Christ the Lord.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
