December Sixth

Todays Scripture is again taken from Colossians. I've written it in a little different format, so you don't have to weed through all my ramblings to get to the meat of it! Hopefully you will be blessed by it and can use it with your family.
Col. 3:17
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

How can you do what you do in the name of Jesus?
If you can’t do it in his name, should you be doing it? What about your words?
How can you show more gratefulness this season?

Turn up the Christmas music, gather up you children and go through their “stuff”. We talked earlier this week about the “too much’s” and this is your time to act upon it. Think about the things you really need and use, and what is just taking up space. Make a pile to donate or re-gift. As you do, thank God for blessing you with it, and that you are now going to be a conduit of his love to someone else. Pray for the person who will receive your gift, and help your children see that by their sacrifice, others will be blessed and feel loved. Remember that Christ sacrificed his all for us.

Remember to check back daily for new posts. Also check out our book, The 12 Days of Christmas at our website and my personal blog at www.damazingmama/ where I post recipes and ramblings on our homeschool journey.
