Bread for the Journey

I can guess that you have had a very busy week behind you and are wondering how you will finish this week, so I want to encourage you to take time to rest today. My prayer is that, as we listen to the words of the carols being sung we will apply them to our life. May we have time to hear an angel voice and welcome the Prince of Peace into our hearts and homes.


  1. Thank you for sharing.
    Merry Christmas to you all.

  2. This is so true for most of us, isn't times I wish it wouldn't be so busy...then,
    I met a woman at the store, and I asked her how her Christmas prep was coming.....
    with deep sad eyes she looked at me and smiled....I have no one to prepare Christmas for. ~~sigh~~

    Thank you Lord for people in my life to make your gift (your Son) to us special enough to share with others.

    I will take being a bit busy, over loneliness anytime.
    Thank you for sharing this with us Anneliese, it is a good reminder to keep Christmas simple and focus in on what really matters.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this. I had never heard it before and it certainly echoes the hearts of many.

  4. Thank you for that song. It was just what I needed to hear. Merry Christmas to you!

  5. So true....we sure do need to be reminded to stop and remember Jesus....the Prince of Peace. You brought me to a good place when I came to your BFTJ.
