Getting Ready for Christmas


What is in the oven today? These muffins, they look so good, are easy to make and my kitchen already smells delicious!

Today I am thankful for two specific things:

1. My name coming out of a hat! 

Yes, I am the happy winner of the book that my dear friend Diane @ Theology for Girls, gave away this week:

Commentary on Matthew
"The Gospel of the Kingdom"
C.H. Spurgeon

You need to know that the beautiful picture of Matthew Henry on the cover was painted by Diane's husband, Robert Bucknell a great artist indeed! (visit his website here)

Thank you, Diane!

2. I am also thankful for all the resources available to study and get ready for Christmas.

Sometimes we spend lots of time thinking about the decorations for our home during the Holidays that we may forget that this is a great time to study some doctrines that are essential for us to know. If we study the sound doctrine, and grasp what it really means Emmanuel, God with us, the Incarnation, God breaking into time becoming man, we will be able to celebrate fully and joyfully this Christmas season.

You don't have to spend money to buy books if you don't have it, there are plenty resources available online for you to start studying today!

Monergism offers a large list of resources here.

Grace and Gems has a wide list of resources too. Find them here.

Go to Ligonier  to listen a teaching series entitled Christmas Messages.

Desiring God also offers several options for you to study, check them out.

Well, my friends, my little one is awake and Saturday muffins are ready...

Have a joyous weekend!

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
