Christmas Wisdom: Children

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

It is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child himself.

Charles Dickens – as quoted in The Greatest Gift, Unwrapping The Full Love Story of Christmas by Ann Voskamp – December 8th devotion.

Weekend Wisdom: Encounter

Devotion #8 in The Greatest Gift, Unwrapping The Full Love Story of Christmas really spoke to me this year. It even more highlighted and marked up than before.

This is one of the sentences that jumped off the page at me.

God doesn’t want to number your failures or count your accomplishments as much as He wants you to have an encounter with Him.

Ann Voskamp – The Greatest Gift, Unwrapping The Full Love Story of Christmas – December 8th devotion.

Be willing to encounter God this holiday and see how much joy it brings you – then go scatter that joy to other people!

Weekend Wisdom: Profanity

This is a very interesting definition of profanity. May we not treat anything with profanity this holiday season.

Treating as meaningless that which is freighted with meaning. Treating as common that which is hallowed. Regarding as a mere triviality what is really a divine design. Profanity is failure to see the inner mystery.

Elisabeth Elliot – as quoted in The Greatest Gift, Unwrapping The Full Love Story of Christmas by Ann Voskamp – December 8th devotion.
