This December I am also very excited to try something new. Along with many others at Welcome to our wonderland, we are reading a chapter a day out of the book of Luke. I could not wait to do this. I have always wanted to start the day off right and get into scripture first thing in the morning but have had trouble with it. Sometimes I was to tired, or to busy, and other times I did not know where to start. All of those excuses lead me to sometimes reading and sometimes finding reasons why not to. But never having a plan on how to. This time it could not be easier. 1 chapter everyday for 24 days. So easy and by joining up there is also the fact of accountability. I would do it today no matter what. Like I said I am excited!So if you would like to join us you are welcome.
I grabbed my little pink Bible that I received last year as a Christmas gift from my husband of 11 years to read this challenge out of. I thought it would be appropriate. What I enjoyed most from chapter 1 is the joy of pregnancy. Two women touched by God in the specialist of all ways told they are having a baby, a son. As a mother of three boys and another baby on the way I am overjoyed to be pregnant. Another connection I had with the chapter was with my first child, like Elizabeth I struggled with infertility. Like both women, with the other 3 pregnancies I have had another Christian women as a pregnancy partner. They are all so special to me and it is extra enjoyable to share your pregnancy with someone going through the same thing at the same time.
I can't wait to continue reading tomorrow and plan to carry a since of peace, of the true meaning of Christmas with me throughout the day. Hug your blessings and have a wonderful day.
Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Psalm 127:3
