The real spirit of Christmas..

Just this morning i was thinking about Christmas and thinking that I wish it was over, i got so depressed that it sent me to my knees in prayer, i don't know if all of us in Philippines forum are Christians but i would like to share with you what God brought to my mind while i was talking with him this morning. my thoughts went to Mary, the mother of Jesus. one of my favorite passages from the Christmas story is Luke 1:45 blessed is she who believed" sometimes in a joking manner my friends will tease me because when they ask me how i am doing i often reply i am blessed.

Blessed is she who believes and we are. especially during the Christmas season as we celebrate the miracle birth of our savior. not only do we celebrate his birth in a borrowed stable but even more important we can celebrate his being born into our hearts , yours and mine. Mary celebrated a miracle in her life. can you imagine what it must have been like for her? seeing an angel in person is one thing but having him tell you that you are going to have a baby when you have never been with a man. the angel told Mary that she would be pregnant with a miracle. she would give birth to the son of god.

I love Mary's example here. she did not understand it but she accepted it. though her future was unsure she chose to believe. the angel reminded her that with god nothing is impossible. she gave birth to a son and they called him Emmanuel which means God with us'

maybe all of us are in need of a Christmas miracle. to be pregnant with the hope of the impossible. to have relationships restored. dreams renewed. hurts healed. to see "God with us" in a very real way to sense his presence and his peace. remember Jesus is the reason for the season and He is with us.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

"Our Wedding Prayer"

Lord,help us to remember when we first met,and the strong love that grew between us.

To work the love into practical things so nothing can divide us

Grant us a Love that grows stronger with each passing year.

We ask for words both kind and loving

and for hearts always ready to ask forgiveness as well as to forgive.

Guide us to overcome every challenge

and keep our dreams pure to each other always.

Dear Lord,we put our marriage into Your hands.Amen

If your heart acquires strength, you will be able to remove blemishes from others without thinking evil of them.
