The countdown to Christmas!

Creating fun, with imagination and childlike's crocheted 'milk & cookies' for Santa! What a treat it is, to suprise the ones you love with a little time, yarn and much creativity....for it is with all that we do, for those that we care to share our love with!

Hey all, we're in the last days of December, counting down to Christmas....but what is it that you're doing to make it so special? Are you working for yourself, others or God? Hmmm? It's not a hard question really, but it's one we struggle with. Are you feverishing shopping for that one last gift, or are you out ringing the bells for charity? Are you baking for others, and filling your days with the spirit of creativity? All is good, if it is in the effort to give of yourself to others today.

I, too, sit here... crocheting away, trying to accomplish my 'goals of giving' to all on my list....but what of the others, who aren't on that near and dear list to my heart? Have I forgotten about them, just because I can not do, only that, which I can get done today? No, I think not....for it is in prayer, throughout my day, that I can be giving to thoughts, wishes, dreams and aspirations to those others that I can't be with, or come to know at this time. I can be with them in spirit however, praying for them....their health, and many other concerns that they might have and/or be plagued with at this time.

So, it is....that as I sit here, doing what I can right now; I am also praying for all of you....and many more, that you might know the spirit of creativity today. For it is the spirit that keeps on giving, even after the Christmas holiday is over. The new year brings with it, a promise of hope and deliveration... won't you be apart of it's beginnning? Join with me I, too, join the many, who are also praying for peace in the new year, and 'goodwill' toward all men. A good beginning, starts with a more positive YOU....don't be deceived by things that are not of your own making, for God is the only one who can change the world as we know it....pray for change to come; know that Christ is the true meaning in 'your Christmas'....the light of the world that can never be extinguished, only ILLUMINATED! Light a candle today....and let the light shine brightly for all who need to a witness to those that are still in the dark, and keep creation alive 'IN YOU'!

Keep creating, keep's good to promote the spirit of creativity, especially when it comes from the heart!

'[For my concern is] that their hearts may be "braced (comforted, cheered, and encouraged) as they are KNIT TOGETHER IN LOVE, that they may come to have all the abounding wealth and blessings of assured conviction of understanding, and that they may become progressively more intimately acquainted with and thoroughly that mystic secret of God, [which is] Christ (the Anointed One).' -Colossians 2:2

Blessings, I'm to all..........Help to Keep 'Christ in Christmas'!
