The Christmas 2019 season officially began this past weekend. The hustle and bustle of Christmas parties, decorating, and present buying has sent my family into a whirlwind of preparation for the big day.
As we approach the season, I am mindful that each morning, I need to reflect on the true meaning. This week, I am reading Luke 1, which recounts the story of the miracle of the birth of John the Baptist and the angel’s visitation on Mary and holy conception of Christ.
I praise God for this season of love and angels. His angels are His messengers sent to Earth on missions to further the Kingdom of God. I also take note as I ponder these scriptures of Hebrews 13: 1-2.
Let brotherly love continue. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers:
for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
Finally, I want to thank everyone for their prayers. My heart tests came back okay with mild-age related heart issues that the doctor wants to recheck in about six months.
My arthritis, however, may have caused damage to my ankles, hips, and back. My doctor is sending me to the surgeon for my left ankle because of a collapsed arch and tendon damage related to my arthritis. I suffered severe pain in this area for the past several weeks. I appreciate your continued prayers.
Next, lets review last week’s linkup.

“Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! For the Lord is a great God and a great King above all gods.” (Psalm 95:1-3)
