“The natives showed us extraordinary kindness; for because of the rain that had set in and because of the cold, they kindled a fire and received us all.” (Acts 28:2)
It’s time for Hollies and berries
And good news I’m sharing
It is fun and toys
And trees full of joys
It’s Christmas and giving
It’s hope and it’s living
It’s heartfelt and genuine
It’s new Love for the first time
It is fun and frolicking
Its sleigh rides while polishing
Its skills and drills
With fun in the hills
It’s cooking and cleaning
While dreams we are dreaming
It’s good and it is fun
It was a boy with a drum
Bring whatever you have
Come on don’t be a drag
It’s the time of the year
To hold loves ones near
It’s time for hollies and berries
Good news to be sharing
Because life is worth living
When love you are giving
Don’t fail to look around
Wear your best smile never frown
Because Christmas time is near
Be the one to bring the cheer

During these last few days before Christmas, the greatest gift we have to offer to others is our hope. The hope we have in Jesus Christ must be shared. We do not grieve like those of the world. As believers in Messiah Jesus, the world see that we are different. They see that in struggles we have strength, in chaos we have calm, and in panic we have peace. The peace of God covers all who believe. This peace is a gift that was prophesied for many years and then proclaimed on the night of Christ’ birth. Peace on earth to those on whom His favor rest, this is our gift and our promise. God is not withholding His favor. No. God longs to cover all that will come to Him, with His peace. Jesus said “this peace I give you.” What a gift. Not as the world gives do I give, Jesus said.
We need to share this “Good News” the gift of Jesus Christ” and His salvation. Be the one this year to offer hope and good news to those around you. It is “Good News. It is Very Good News.”
“As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, so is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refreshes the soul of his masters.” (Proverbs 25:13)
God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you and give you Shalom.
Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
