Our Source for the Season

At the start of this most magical time of the year - we all have longings and desires. For rest, for joy, for peace that permeates our souls. For love expressed, and love shared. For belonging, and for being cherished, to be home.

And as wives and moms, we desire to create an atmosphere in our homes where all who live within, and all who enter, find rest, joy, and peace. We will go to whatever lengths needed to create a place where the magic of the season can fill all the places of the heart. Boxes of decorations will be unpacked and placed around our homes, hours and hours of time will be spent baking goodies, and days will be spent shopping for just the right gifts for those we love.

Oh, how I love this time of year - 
excitement and anticipation is in the air!

And I am reminded that all that I long for is a Gift, coming from one Source. From the One who gave us the desires and longings for Love, for Joy, and for Peace. And I want to be plugged into this Source. For without the power that flows from our Vine, we are powerless. Without Love and Joy and Peace that comes from Him, we will have no love, and no joy, and no peace this season.

"Yes, I am the Vine, you are the branches.
Those who remain in Me, and I in them,
will produce much fruit.
For apart from Me you can do nothing."
(John 15:5)
