A Christmas Blessing for you

{Be sure to bestow this blessing on others.}

May you have a child-like faith.

Bowled over with the wonder of it all!

Always looking for what comes next.

May you be open to explore God among us.

Perhaps Immanuel is experienced in memories — provoked by a long-ago-made ornament.

Or noticed in nature’s ornamented arrangements…

Iced over American Cranberry Bush Viburnum

May you be awed by God’s redeeming love.

May you have a blessed Christmas!

Christmas Blessings!

{A Christmas blessing for you.}

This Christmas, may you catch a glimpse of this truth…

A creche scene with the words 'Love Came Down'

Love came among us on Christmas.

Yes, to us all!
The heart-sick,
the weary,
the lost,
the down-troddened.

To give us hope.
To show us how much God cares.

Share the gift

May you bring this gift to others.
May you be an image-bearer of Christ,
an agent of change,
a light for the world!


May you have a blessed Christmas!


–Love, Carol
