On my BIG birthday, this is the sight I walked down the stairs to!
WORDS, written on snowflakes, simple pieces of paper with printed out messages.
At first glance it may have looked like a scene from one of our favorite Christmas movies.
Not the one that sings about snow, White Christmas, but the one where Buddy cuts out hundreds and hundreds of snowflakes and hangs them all over the place, Elf!
But, at closer examination, you could see each snowflake had been cut by hand and held a unique pattern all its own! They glistened as the light from the window landed on them and caused the silver gems on them to sparkle! As you stepped even closer you saw THE WORDS!
What’s in a WORD?
Appreciation, gratitude, loyalty, laughter, memories, joy, commitment, passion, enthusiasm, friendship, sisterhood, family, kindness, generosity, inspiration, blessings, faith and most of all LOVE!
These WORDS and more jumped off of these snowflakes and into my heart and soul forever!
“Gracious WORDS are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.”
OUR WORDS HAVE THE POWER TO HEAL WHEN THEY ARE GRACIOUS AND WISELY CHOSEN!
If our WORDS can hold so much power, is it no wonder that JESUS CHRIST is THE WORD!
“And The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and Truth.” John 1:14
Our WORDS matter as we reflect THE WORD, Jesus Christ, with the WORDS we say and the lives we live!
I was inspired by the Words on my snowflakes to give this same gift to my Savior on His Birthday!
I hung a string on my staircase banister, and found printed cards online with numbers 1 – 25 on them, and a unique name of Jesus on the back. For seven days now I have read each name and thanked God for the way He has blessed my life with that attribute.
Day 1, was THE WORD!
My WORDS to God on Day 1, “Thank you God that you are THE WORD! Thank you that Jesus Christ has been and always will be THE WORD! Thank you that His WORDS are TRUTH! Thank you that you have given your Son, Jesus, to the world and I have Him as my Lord and Savior!”
“In the beginning was THE WORD, and THE WORD was with God, and THE WORD was GOD.” John 1:1
THANK YOU JESUS!
THE WORD! Jesus Christ is THE WORD, the WORD of God, sent to Earth in human flesh. He walked, talked, slept, ate, listened, got hungry, got tired, felt, understood and lived on this earth just like I do! Just like you do!
As we are one week closer to the birthday of Jesus, I pray we will continue to use our WORDS to show THE WORD our love, gratitude, and appreciation for who He is!
I love and appreciate and pray for all of you!
I want to use my WORDS to tell you so!
THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU AS YOU ANTICIPATE HIS BIRTHDAY!
Speak Truth Love
