  1. In Courage,

    God is a loving, caring God. He is real & is attentive to our needs,

    God is moving me towards a slower paced more intentional Christmas. I listen to “Its about the Cross” & “It’s called Christmas with a Capital C” by Go Fish. Also been tuning in to Chris Tomlin’s Christmas songs. Making sure I hear the words & what they are saying.

    Christmas is so much richer now that I’m older & pay more attention to the details of His birth. I ponder things like being 9 months pregnant & riding a donkey long distances. Having a baby in a barn with a chill in the air. No crib but a small manger to lay him in.

    Have a blessed Christmas Eve everyone! 🙂

  2. Who is God? If my human mind were to define God in human terms, He is the ultimate Leader.

    As a military spouse, I heard often from my husband that a true leader doesn’t just give commands but leads from the front. A true leader goes into battle with his (or her) troops. A true leader does not expect more of his soldiers than he is willing to give of himself. A true leader is followed because he has earned the respect of those who follow him, not simply because his position requires them to follow.

    God lowered Himself into human form, faced the struggles of growing up in a corrupt world. The Creator of the universe chose to be born into the family of little financial means. Jesus, son of Mary and Joseph, a brother and a friend, facing ridicule and opposition but never ceasing to do the Father’s will – Where He leads, I will follow. He knows me. He knows the struggles I face and He faces them with me. He faced them before me. I serve Him alone, not out of fear, but out of reverence.
