Today’s advent word: INVITE.

As we approach the Christmas season, think of someone in your life who is sad or lonely or hurting and pledge to say or do something to help bring God’s healing love into their lives. Invite them for a donut, coffee or dinner. Phone or text them. Show them that they are loved and not alone.

“Always leave people better than you found them. Hug the hurt. Kiss the broken. Listen to the grieving. Befriend the lost. Love the lonely.”

Advent Word of the Day

Today’s advent word: ASK.

This is the first time I’ve been in town and close to the cemetery on Mom’s birthday. I always love how the light shines through the trees here. In January it will be 18 years since she left us for her heavenly home and I often ask “Why her?” and “Why so young?”. But I trust Him daily and know He is wise and faithful, no matter what. I have so many friends grieving this first Christmas without their loved one. It’s not easy…and unfortunately never really will be. But we have HOPE. Please remember all those who are having a difficult Christmas season.

Today’s advent word: SURPRISE.

Remembering the surprise of waking up to this. Definitely God’s beauty but glad it isn’t normal for us anymore.

“And if God CARES so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won’t he more surely care for you, O you of little faith?”

Advent Word of the Day

Today’s advent word: GIVE. I can’t think of any better organization and group of people for you to GIVE to on this ‪#‎GivingTuesday‬ than The Center for Bioethics and Culture Network. I’ve never met a harder working team than this! They speak out daily on behalf of exploited women and unprotected/unloved babies. I urge you to give something (big or small) today to this place that is near and dear to my heart! They have received an amazingly generous matching gift of $100,000, which means that any gift you give now will be doubled!! ‪#‎GiveNow‬ ‪#‎GIVE‬ ‪#‎AdventWord‬‪#‎WomenAreNotBreeders‬ ‪#‎ChildrenAreNotCommodities‬
