Turtle Tuesday: All Calm and Bright?

Lord, sometimes I get caught up in all the trimmings. I try not to, but you know how I am.  I can b a busy b. I could give Martha a run for her money if you know what I mean...(Sorry Lord, of course you know what I mean.You know everything.)

 I fill my house with lights that shine

Good smelling candles that glow

I try to bake every yummy recipe I know and pack it in Christmas tins

My list goes on and on Lord. 

I try to 'create' a welcoming atmosphere in my home Lord.  Forgive me when I offer cheap substitutes to those who live in darkness around me.   Help me remember you are with me.  I 'house' you, the Light of the World.  Help me shine the real thing this Christmas season.  Thank you Jesus. Amen

B His Girl


  1. My prayer too, B. More and more every year. Not a single decoration at my house this year - only christmas carols playing in the background.

    Merry Christmas, B

  2. I can find myself in your post. I tend toward a Martha-ish-ness myself. I just need to slow down all year and focus more on HIM!!


  3. Hey B!! I think B-lieve is a great word for this season. xoxo

  4. A good prayer for all of us!

    Love you. Merry Christmas. And I'm still loving my turtle blanket, minus the hot flashes.


  5. Amen! Praying in agreement with you B.

    Christmas blessings to you and your family!

  6. I'm catching up on your past few posts. You are always here with a good word.

  7. Wow thank you for this word. It's good even after Christmas. As you know, I'm not blogging for the rest of the year. Believing for His new for 2011.
    Love u
