Have a Wonderful and Restful Sunday

*

(This is a snow globe that was given to me some years
back by a friend and neighbor)
*
Happy Sunday to you today,
*
Hope you are having a lovely Sunday!
*
I am hoping to be able to go to church
tomorrow but am feeling like I might have
a stomach virus coming on,  am so hoping
NOT!  Guess we will see tomorrow!
Tomorrow is our Christmas Contata and
we would really love to go but guess we
will see about that as well.
*
I think we are being tested on our Christmas
Spirit this year!  We are doing our dead level
best to enjoy this Season even tho we are
not feeling our best!  We are determined.!!
Tonight we put out our candles in the jars
with the epsom salt snow!
They looked lovely,  need to do a few more
but have to get the labels off the jars first!! lol
*
Once I get them all done I will take a picture
so you can see!  Guess you could say we are
going green this year!!  lol
Not really,  just too tired to put up lights.
*
Got a few more things off my list today,
got the outside of the house decorated
and pulled up some weeds and dead
flowers that need to come up.
So looks much better.
*
I will leave you with these verses
for today!
Luke 2:1-5
*
In those days Caesar Augustus, issued a decreed that
a census should be taken of the entire Roman World.
*
(This was the first census that took place while Quirinius
 was govenor of Syria.) 
*
and everyone went to his own town to register.
*
So Joseph also went up from the town of
Nazareth in Galilee to Judea,  to Bethlehem the town
of David, because he belonged to the house and
line of David.
*
He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged
to be married to him and was expecting a child.
*
*
I was just thinking I guess that would make Mary
the first unwed Mother of her day!
Never really thought of that before, but that is
probably how people would have seen it.
*
I am sure she and Joseph must have taken
some ridicule for their situation,  cause people were
 like they are today, skeptics, so they probably
said you are pregnant with a child from God,
Yea Right!  This lady is off her rocker!
*
And Joseph seems to be such a reasonable
man,  can't understand why he would believe
that story,  he must be crazy too!
*
Well, thankfully we know they weren't crazy
at all,  just obedient servants of the
Most High God!
*
What a blessing to have God's word available
to us all the time,  so we can know the true
meaning and story of Christmas!
*
Ponder His goodness to us this Christmas,
and His Great Love for Us!
*
Love,  Hugs and Blessings,
Nellie
