Of Christmas Trees & God’s Love

It is Christmastime. I love this time of year. Nicole and the kiddos and I always go and lumberjack our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. We’ve gone to the same tree farm since moving to Washington in 2007 and we love it. They have hot coco, little goats to feed, a reindeer, a Santa Claus who tells Josiah that his name means “fire of the Lord” every year. They also have Christmas trees.

Nothing Is Impossible With God

Questions for discussion

Luke 1:29 says, "But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and tried to discern what sort of greeting this might be." How would you react if an angel showed up in your room with a greeting like Mary got?

Maybe we don't have angels appear to us, but what are some ways that we can know what God wants us to do?

During this season, what is something that you can do to focus on God's presence?
