I'm so glad to be joining in with Then Sings My Soul Saturday today. I link up with Amy of Signs, Miracles and Wonders. If you want to sing some wonderful Christmas carols, I'm sure you will find many on the link up today.
The song that's been in my heart this past week is "Let There Be Peace on Earth". We live in a world that is anything but peaceful. There are wars, rebellion and lots of sin. It's hard to insulate yourself and your family completely. And even as Christians, we don't always respond peacefully or in a God honoring way to others or our circumstances.
I've learned so many lessons through one of the most challenging seasons of my life. However, each day God shows me something else He wants me to learn.
As I've begun working full time with little children, I can't help but look into their sweet faces and know that God loves each one of them. They come in all shapes, colors and sizes and yet each one is unique.
As I step on the playground to greet them, I find that I cannot even take a step because I am swamped with little arms hugging my legs. It warms my heart to be greeted with shouts of "Hi Miss Debbie" and "oh look, Miss Debbie is here".
For a woman who longed for children, this is ...a gift from God.
Will you choose to let peace begin with you?
Blessings and love,
