Hey friends! How’s the weather where you are?? We have had several days with cooler temps and I am loving it! Maybe you don’t know but I LOVE fall. I really do think it’s my favorite season. Today I’m teaming up with several other talented friends to bring you some fall tablescape inspiration! It’s never too early to start planning for those family get-togethers happening at your house this year!
But Sunday’s Comin.
Today is Good Friday – the day we remember the sacrifice that Jesus chose in the cross. I am so very thankful that Jesus chose to be obedient to The Father and die on the cross for my sins. I found this video a couple of years ago, and maybe you’ve seen it or heard the sermon before but it is so powerful, and I love it so I am sharing it. Feel free to share it with others, it is such a good testimony to the whole celebration of the crucifixion and the resurrection.
What a blessing for us, that we know Sunday’s comin. Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend celebrating The Risen Savior!!
Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the Roman empire the inhabited earth. This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. And everyone was on his way to register for the census, each to his own city. Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child. While they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is MessiahChrist the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace among men of good willwith whom He is pleased.”
When the angels had gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds began saying to one another, “Let us go straight to Bethlehem then, and see this thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us.” So they came in a hurry and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the baby as He lay in the manger. When they had seen this, they made known the statement which had been told them about this Child. And all who heard it wondered at the things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart. The shepherds went back, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as had been told them.
Happy Birthday Jesus!! Merry Christmas from our family to yours!!
