Christmas- commemorating the birth of Jesus: celebrated on December 25 and now generally observed as a legal holiday and an occasion for exchanging gifts.

Joyance – joyous feeling; gladness

When I think about Christmas, I think about Jesus! It’s the true meaning. CHRISTmas is JESUS! And when I think about Jesus, I think about love, peace, hope, goodness, forgiveness, joy. He makes me happy! I hope this holiday season brings you joy and that we never forget the LOVE Jesus has for all of us. We may be going through a tough time or maybe a great time, but know this – Jesus loves you so very much. Read about him. Pray to him. Call out to him and experience his great love for you. Merry Christmas to you all!


Brokenhearted ~ burdened with great sorrow, grief, or disappointment.

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭34:18‬ ‭

There will be many times in our lives where our hearts will be broken. It could be the loss of a loved one, the loss of a family pet or a very stressful day. During these heart aches, it feels as if the pain and our tears never seem to end. We find ourselves overwhelmed with…life.

Whatever you are going through, my prayer to you is this ~ Dear friend, I may not know you, but I’m praying For you. I pray that God touches your very heart the moment you are reading this. I pray he brings you peace and understanding of what you are going through. May God’s love encompass you to where you absolutely feel his presence surround you. I pray God strengthens your faith in him and restores joyful hope in your soul. God loves you. He is close to you. He knows what you are going through. Continue to trust in him and let his love move in your heart. In Jesus’ name. Amen.


In the beginning, there was the Word.  The Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning. All things were made by him, and nothing was made without him.  In him there was life, and that life was the light of all people.  The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overpowered it.  John 1:1-5

Who is the Word? His name is JESUS.

Did you know that no matter what you have done, no matter what you thought, there is nothing that will ever take away the love Jesus has for you? He loves you so much that he died for your sins and mine.  He takes away the sins of the world!

Paul wrote it perfectly – Ephesians 3:17-19 – I pray that Christ will live in your hearts by faith and that your life will be strong in love and be built on love. And I pray that you and all God’s holy people will have the power to understand the greatness of Christ’s love – how wide and how long and how high and how deep that love is. Christ’s love is greater than anyone can ever know, but I pray that you will be able to know that love.  Then you can be filled with the fullness of God.

He goes on to say in Ephesians 3:20 – With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or imagine.

Trust Jesus – Believe in Jesus –  Follow Jesus –  Read about Jesus every single day and watch Him work in your life like never before.

His name is beautiful. His name is powerful. He will always love you. He died on the cross for you. He lives inside you. His name is Jesus.




JOHN 3:16 – You know this verse. Or do you really know what it means?

For God so LOVED (who?) – the WORLD that he gave his one and only Son, (who?) JESUS CHRIST – that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have ETERNAL life. Or in other words EVERLASTING life.

Do you know what that means?? It means -WOW!  We can live forever with our Savior!

God is telling us that He loves us! He really, really loves us.  He has an everlasting love for you and me.  Everlasting means – lasting forever.  No matter what you or I have done, He loves us unconditionally.

Sometimes I need to relax and sit in a quiet place and think about nothing else but Jesus.  It calms my soul and brings happiness to my heart.

Whatever you are going through, find your comfort place, close your eyes and take a deep breath.  Pray to your loving Father in heaven.  Just talk to Him. Tell Him how your day went.  Be still and let His everlasting, unconditional love sink deep into your body, mind, and soul.
