Embrace * Advent Open House


Transitional seasons offer a perfect scenario 
for our faith to take roots and soar.

When all around us is shifting, collapsing, or morphing, 
embracing the comforting truth that God is in charge 
and that He never changes can settle our souls
and give us a healthy perspective.  

Leaning into His strength lends us 
the grace and emotional energy 
to do the hard work of releasing what's behind 
and embracing all He has planned for us to be and do.

  1. What a precious photo, Linda!!! Yes, embracing it all as I lean into the Lord.
    Merry Christmas!

    1. I hope you've had a wonderful Christmas weekend, Martha! Thanks for faithfully walking step by step through Advent with me.

      It's been joy ...

  2. There's nothing like a hug, is there?

    I take comfort in knowing He will never leave us or forsake us. It helps to remember that when change is happening!

    Merry Christmas, Linda!

    1. Hugs. Yes, please, lots of 'em!

      Merry Christmas, Jerralea!

  3. Beautiful words and a beautiful picture.

    1. What a beautiful Christmas you've had with your beautiful grandbaby joining the party, Kara.

      I'm so happy for you!

  4. May you know the Father's embrace Linda as you celebrate the birth of Jesus.

    1. The Father's embrace. Yes, now that you put it that way, I realize how He's reached down with tender touches in recent days ...

      I hope this has been a fabulous Advent for you and your gang, Bill!
