The week or so before Christmas break always feels like I am on a roller coaster that is going way to fast, and we are about to fly off at the next turn. I don’t know why at the beginning of December I feel like I can take on the world and smash life right out of the park. It never works that way no matter how hard I try. Next year I will try to fill in the pieces and hopefully have a completed piece of work with links to every day in my 24 devotional advent series before it starts!
Often praise songs go around in my head and I can’t help but sing them over and over again all day long. Some songs that get stuck can be annoying, but whenever a praise song is on repeat I think that is God’s way of drawing me close and reminding me to focus on Him. The Revelation Song is what is in my head today. I am not sure it has anything directly related to the devotional on King David, although I am sharing it. The red thread we are following through the Jesse Tree leads right to this, the birth of Christ and eventually Him claiming His throne in heaven as Son of the Most High.
I have definitely missed a few days on my Jesse Tree Devotional, probably because every time I think I have a moment it goes in a flash! I apologize for not keeping up, by next year I will have all these ready to go and here for you. Currently I am up to my eye balls in laundry, my house is a disaster, and snow is coming down outside non stop. I have shoveled twice today and still need to go out again, but the white snow does look beautiful and Christmas like.
Tonight’s advent includes us sitting down to watch the movie “The Prince of Egypt.” Since there is a large amount of information in the story of Moses leading the Israelites out of Egypt, I found the movie to be a “family night” with a purpose. I can’t believe how quickly each day is flying by now, we are getting closer on our journey to Christmas through the Jesse Tree Advent.
