CANDLES OF CHRISTMAS
Upon the mantle, beautiful candles glow as they burn through special occasions throughout the holidays… reminders of those times when family and friends gather to celebrate the birth of Christ. Though the holidays will end, let us carry a candle for the Child in each of our hearts throughout the coming year. May the warmth of His spirit mold each of us into the person we are meant to be and may we share God’s joy with everyone we meet. Give thanks to God for His greatest gift, and worship Him each week.

It’s easy to smile at a cheerful person, but how much greater the blessing to try to cheer up a discouraged or angry person. Joyfulness is contagious! Paul writes in his letter to the Romans (1:1-12), “For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you, that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each others faith, both yours and mine.” Share your joy with others at your house of worship this week; God will smile on you!
