Got a surprise when feeding the ducks the other week

A Goose sneaked round the back and pecked me for special attention :)

I was so surprised, I made sure it got special attention it asked for.

Remind you of anything?

Just round the corner

Deuteronomy 6:4
Hear O Israel: The Lord our God, The Lord is one. 

The Lord will be king over the whole earth. 
On that day there will be one Lord, and his name the only name.

Who is your God?

Speak it out loud right now

Joshua 24:15

But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. 

But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.

Are you forgetful?

Some causes of forgetfulness are, l
ack of sleep, stress and anxiety, alcohol, medicines & pills, depression, the list goes on. 

what about choosing to forget?
Do you hold things against people?
Do you say "I'll forgive but I wont forget?"
Do you keep the wrongs they have done in your heart yet say "I love God?"

Psalm 103:12 says
As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

When we seek Gods' forgiveness He not only forgives but chooses to forget as well.

How amazing is that?
if God does this, shouldn't we?

Blackberries are my favourite fruit, they'll grow almost anywhere.
They are similar to Roses

I remember a few years ago whilst taking a photo of bramble flower buds, thinking how good it would be to take a single picture of all the stages at once, from bud to berry.

Well this year I was able to do just that.

Psalm 37 verse says                                                                                                                             

Delight yourself in the LORD and he shall give you the desires of your heart.                                         

God is good so delight in Him.

Gifts of the Heart

Gifts of the Heart
Christmas Eve and excited children all over the world wait in anticipation of opening their gifts in the morning and some will hope that the gift they bought their friends and relatives will be unwrapped to cries of
‘Just what I’ve always wanted.’

Many homes will have a brightly lit Christmas tree, with an angel or star on the top, each branch trimmed with baubles and tinsel.
Colourfully wrapped gifts of all shapes and sizes are neatly arranged around its base.
There are those of course who for whatever reason do not celebrate the birth of Jesus but the Gift of the Christ child is for everyone even those who do not celebrate.
This Gift was not found under a tree, (the tree featured thirty three years later) nor wrapped in fancy gift wrap, (just strips of cloth) no tinsel, no streamers, no balloons or party poppers but there was the biggest proclamation you could ever imagine, an Angel of God accompanied by others from Heavens’ Army appeared to some frightened shepherds who were going about their business tending sheep.
Of course it’s only fitting for a shepherd to know when a lamb has been born and what a way to       announce it. 
Can you imagine the sight? 
They were of course afraid at first and the Angel said 'Fear not I bring you glad tidings of great Joy'Later three Wise Men following the brightest star there’s ever been, called to pay homage, each bringing a gift from the heart. Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh.
Jesus is Gods’ triple gift of the heart to mankind, to those who will receive Him.
Love Joy and Peace.
In order to get the full benefit of a gift you have to unwrap it. 
Hundreds of years before the Messiahs birth Isaiah wrote
Isaiah 9:6-8
6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, 
   and the government will be on his shoulders.   
   and he will be called Wonderful Counsellor,
   Might God, Everlasting Father, Prince of
7 Of the greatness of his government and peace
   there will be no end. He will reign on David’s    
   throne and over his kingdom, establishing and
   upholding it with justice and righteousness
   from that time on and forever.
   The ZEAL of the LORD Almighty will
   accomplish this.
The gift of Love 
John 3:16 says
’For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that every one who believes in him shall not be lost, but should have eternal life.’
1 John 4:10 says
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
and 1 John 4:8 says
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
The gift of Joy 
John 15:10-12 says
10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in 
     my love, just as I have kept my Father’s
     commands and remain in his love.
11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in 
     you and that your joy may be complete.
12 My command is this: Love each other as I have
     loved you
The gift of Peace 
Luke 2:12-14 
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host 
     appeared with the angel, praising God and
14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on
     earth peace to those on whom his favour rests.”

John 14:26-27 
26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the 
     Father will send in my name, will teach you all
     things and will remind you of everything I have
     said to you.
27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I
     do not give to you as the world gives. Do not
     let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Jesus is of course The Prince of Peace
May you be so richly blessed as you unwrap Gods’ gift anew this Christmas.
May Love, Joy and Peace be yours in abundance.

Over the years many have sought to explain what love is but can love really be explained?

Artists have painted pictures, singers have sung songs and poets have written poems.

The Bible says this about Love.

1 John 4:8
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

1 John 4:10
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotton Son that whosoever believes on Him will not perish but have eternal Life.

That is my favourite verse.

What about you?
