Mary's Song

I’m bursting with God-news;
I’m dancing the song of my Savior God.
God took one good look at me, and look what happened—
I’m the most fortunate woman on earth!
What God has done for me will never be forgotten,
The God whose very Name is holy set apart from all others.
His mercy flows in wave after wave
On those who are in awe before Him.

Mary’s Song in Luke 1:46-50 (MSG).
She is dancing and singing to her Lord.
Thankful for He has chosen her to carry our Savior.

But the song takes on new meaning to me when I apply to myself --
because what He has done for me will never be forgotten.
Because of salvation,
 I’m the most fortunate woman on earth!

Memory Making Days

I enjoy those times that your day isn't planned but turns out to be memory-making day. I had a couple like that this week. The first time was when my husband went on a ride with a friend and I.
Enjoyed the cold ride in a field trial.

The other memory day was a trip downtown with my daughter and grandkids. I always love walking through the Peabody.

Next, a good grilled shrimp poorboy at Flying Fish, a quick walk down Beale Street to Schwab's Store 

 then met my son-in-law for a walk around the Mississippi River.

Thankful for these kind of days.

The Morning Star

Before we read the familiar story of our Savior's birth in Luke 2, this verse in chapter one speaks of His coming...

 "Because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace." Luke 1:78

" will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the Morning Star rises in your hearts."  (2 Peter 1:14)

Who is that Morning Star?

"I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning  Star." (Rev. 22:16b)

Looking A Lot Like Christmas

 In today's busy world, I am thankful for my daughter and her family and their desire to portray Mary and Joseph, an angel and a wise man (boy) in a Christmas parade.

"I have no greater joy than to hear my children are walking in the truth." 3 John 1:4
 My Littlest Angel with Tootise Rolls in her cheeks.
Mary holding a real baby
My Wise Man who said it felt like he was wearing a "dress".

    As someone who loves photography, the word. "focus" has my attention.  You can try to capture a beautiful scene but if your picture is not in focus, then the finished result is not what it should be.  This is the same in my life. 
In Beth Moore's study "Believing God" Beth wrote, 
     "God has promised to never leave us or forsake us. When we choose to walk with God rather than off the path to handfuls of other options, we find His perfect will for our lives. We find out promised land. I have discovered that if Satan can't get to me with destruction, he will try to get to me with distraction. We have only one turn on this green earth. We will never get to do this again. We cannot do a hundred things to the glory of God, but we can certainly do a few. What you and I need is focus. Day in and day out. Eyes on the goal. In our frenzied life styles we are desperate for simplicity: for a hundred things to narrow down to one."
   As the Christmas season approaches, I want to focus on Christ not the distractions of the season.

"But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." Phil. 3:13b-14.
