For the week of December 20th
Devotion - Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!
Scripture Psalm 150
This is the last week before Christmas. How can it already be Christmas? Time passes differently in this season. For some, it is agonizing; for others it flies. For children, it seems like forever until Christmas; for adults, we blink and it is over. Everyone has different things going on in this season and different attitudes. We have different joys and different burdens. This last week, let us all join together and praise God as we prepare to once again welcome our Savior. No matter our age or stage, where we are, where we have been or where we are going, we can all join our voices to celebrate this holy time. Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord!
Song: The Little Drummer Boy (Peace On Earth), Bing Crosby, David Bowie
In our lives: Generations came together when David Bowie and Bing Crosby sang this song. It is a beautiful song and a profound declaration of what it means to be the family of God. Who remembers Bing Crosby? Who remembers David Bowie? Together, they made beautiful music in praise of God. Let everything that has breath declare: Peace on Earth!
Thank you to all who donated toys to our Toy Drive!
