Christmas Eve...

"So That At The Name Of Jesus Every Knee Will Bow." Phil 2:10
May you and I bow, at the very thought, of what God has done for us...

"Glory to God in the Highest Heaven and Peace on Earth to all whom God favors."

God, I am overwhelmed with love and gratitude....Come again Lord Jesus.

Merry Christmas everybody,

Christmas Haircut...

“God has given a son to us. His name will be Wonderful Counselor.” -Isaiah 9:6
This is what someone's hair looked like as he fell asleep.

However, the same someone (allegedly), decided "his bangs were really long and hanging all in his eyes"

Naturally, he did what any non-licensed-professional-7 year old-beauty-school-drop-out would do....
He took the law (or the scissors) into his own hands.
He made an executive decision, along with the support of encouraging and giggling cousins.

By sunrise? Problem solved.

No more bangs.

Sometimes Christmas doesn't exactly, look like what you think it should look like

Plans change...

People are missing...
Hair isn't perfect for pictures...
Chairs that used to be filled are empty....

One thing is not empty?
The manger.

He came for you.
He came for me.

God was there then.
God is here now.

God, Thank You for leaving perfection to come to the place where there are broken hearts and jacked up bangs.

In His Dust,

His Wings, His Peace...

"He will cover you with His feathers. He shelters you with his wings." - Psalm 91:4

It's rainy...and's crowded...there is nowhere to's the hustle and bustle of Christmas!
Recently, I have been forced to slow down and thus able to recognize
in the midst of it all-
there is a stillness...
a silence...
a peace...

"Therefore I will not fear, nor will I be dismayed, for behold,
The Lord will save me from afar, and I will have rest and be quiet."
~Jeremiah 30:10
God is good. God is faithful. God is closer than the very breath you just took.

God, Thank You for blanketing me and my family with Your Protection and Peace.

In His Dust,

Thank You God for Momo....

Today is Momo's 88th bday.....and although she is celebrating in The Very Presence of God Himself, I thought she deserved an earthly "shout out"
So, Happy Birthday My Little Momo....I sure do miss you.

Your family, by your example, has

"Strength and gladness in place" ~1 Chronicles 16:27

For we know that right now,

you are surrounded by loved ones that you have missed for so very long.

We also know, full well, that God has

"turned your sorrow into joy and your mourning into good days" ~Esther 9:22

We bless God for His Promise of resurrection...for life eternal...for complete healing.

No matter what life may bring, we will enjoy the ride, just like you taught us to do.

God, I bless you from the depths of my heart today for Susan Cherry Mims Blair, "Momo".

I bless You for her life, her love and her laughter. I know she has heard from Your Own Voice,

"Well done good and faithful servant...You fought the good fight, you finished the race, you kept the faith."

In His Dust,

Susan Blair's Granddaughter
