I love to create a new pattern for you at this time of year which focuses solely on the truest Gift we can ever receive.
At the weekend I was pottering around in the kitchen and stopped in my tracks as these words were heavily impressed upon my heart - "Holy is His name"...and then I knew exactly what this end of year design would be.
I mention this each Christmas season, but for those who are new here, I'll mention it anew.
In our family Jesus is celebrated every day. He wasn't born on December 25th, more likely sometime in September by historical accounts, and even though it is wonderful to embrace this season with carols and gift giving, family and hospitality, being a Bible believing Christian is a day to day celebration of the greatest gift ever given to man by God...His Son, Jesus, our Saviour, Redeemer and Lord.
Let me encourage you to slow your 'to-ing and fro-ing' this month, to step back a little from the hustle and bustle, and to look with fresh eyes at the Glorious One your heart and thoughts should be gazing upon in awe and wonder.
His is the name above all names, and each day serving Jesus is a perpetual gift to us from the Father on High, because every good and perfect gift is from Him...and we know Jesus is that good and perfect gift beyond all others.
I love singing genuine Christmas carols about Jesus any time of year, not the ones which glorify a lie (i.e. santa), but I enjoy them more regularly through December, so as I go about my gentle domestic tasks this month the beautiful songs about Jesus' birth will fill the air. What is your favourite carol? Mine is Night Divine. :-)
