Welcome to my blog page and to this glorious Month of December!

Why Is Christmas Celebrated on December 25? - HISTORY

It is one of the colder wintery months, yet one  in which hearts are warmed, indoors and outdoors spaces lit, vibrant colours red.. white ..  green .. and tinsel, carol singing, gifts buying and exchanging, scrumptious Christmas day dinners, and a generous spirit of celebration and cheer is found everywhere!

December, bring for us the Christmas Story, a baby boy is born to the Virgin Mary in a stable in the little Town of Bethlehem. And though this is a story told for centuries over, yet each year, the meaning seems fresh with hope for people across the globe. For in the Christmas Story the baby Jesus represents God’s love gift to humanity. LIFE’s gift of forgiveness, the promise of a home above, and on earth the hope of peace, and goodwill to all.

A Prayer for December 

God of all months, days, and times
To Thee we ascribe thanks and praise for this and all our days past and to come. 
As we enjoy the festivities, gifts, and celebrations around this season of cheer, and whist we are very grateful, we are also mindful that there are those who are lonely, sad, broken, hungry, facing hardships and  sufferings in various ways; for these we pay strength and hope, love, deliverance, provision, and peace. 
We give thanks that it is so, and so it is. Amen and amen.
