  1. Jennifer, it is so true that praising God brings me great comfort and peace. When I do it I promise myself that I won’t stop but alas, there I go and get busy and stop taking the time to stop and give thanks. I’m grateful for the reminder especially at this special time of the year. I’ve just read your post to my 7 & 5 year olds and we’re going to stop, take a breath and say ‘hallelujah’!

  2. Jennifer,

    I am up even earlier than usual…couldn’t sleep…Christmas, planning a wedding in January, contractors coming to the house today, son moving back in…and on it goes.

    Pause…Hallelujah! Take a deep breath…Hallelujah! Say it like you mean it, Bev…Hallelujah!

    Thanks and Blessings Jennifer,

    • Bev,

      Congratulations on your marriage@ Nay–Hallelujah so so happy for you and your mate!!! I pray God will bless this marriage and give you a super Christian soul mate for life!

      May this be the most precious Christmas ever!! Stop–breath, look around and up and enjoy all the beauty that God has bestowed upon you@!

      God Bless you!

  3. Yes, I love to praise the LORD two. And I love your tags but I’ll just use them as my pin and keep them forever.
    Christmas is upon us.
    I love Christmas.

  4. Love these tags!!! Can’t wait to start wrapping gifts! Is the striped one available for download? Thanks

  5. i love this Hallejuah sign. So appropriate and what a great way to witness.
    However, I couldn’t save it in order to print it out. I keep getting an error message. Has anyone else had this problem.

    • Thanks, Diane! I am not sure if anyone else is having a problem… when I click on any of the tags, it opens as a PDF file. Then on the upper right side I can click ‘download’ or ‘print’. Then if I click the ‘download’ button, the window pops up to save. Does any of that work for you?

  6. Hallelujah!@ Christ the Savior is born in Bethlehem! I love/dislike this time of year. Oh, don’t get me wrong I praise God for being born as a babe in a lowly manger. I just don’t like all the commercialism that is shoveled our way.

    I want a simpler, less dramatic & more worshipful Christmas this year! Wish the whole world would “get the meaning” of Christmas. My favorite song is “It’s Called Christmas with a Capital C by Go Fish! Love that they say “Call it what you will, but it’s still Christmas about the birth of a savior born to save us all from our sins!

    God Bless everyone!

  7. Hallelujah! What a Saviour. Beautiful tags Jennifer. Remembered from a fb post and wandered over here to find you… and the tags. Beautiful writing jennifer.

    love Rachel x
