Spiritual Sundays

Hello dear bloggy friends~ A warm welcome to Spiritual Sundays hosted by Charlotte and Ginger.

Today I am continuing the Advent candle celebration.
I think this is a lovely way to celebrate as we count down the weeks till Christmas!

The first candle was The Candle of Hope or Prophecy. The second was The Candle of the Way and the third candle was The Candle of Joy.

This week's candle is the Candle of Peace.

Prophetic verse: "For unto us a Child is born; unto us a Son is given. And the government shall be on His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, the mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace." ~ Isaiah 9:6-7

Fulfilment of Prophecy: " ...the Dayspring from on high has visited us; To give light to those that sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace." ~ Luke 1: 78b-79

"And when the parents brought in the Christ Jesus, to do for Him according to the custom of the Law, he took him up in his arms and blessed God and said, 'Lord, now You are letting your servant depart in peace, according to Your word; for my eyes have seen Your salvation which You have prepared for the face of all peoples; a light to bring revelation to the Gentiles and the glory of Your people Israel.' " ~ Luke 2: 27b-32

NOTE: Those of you who have been praying for my DIL Carina, I want to thank you. She is doing better and for those of you are not aware, my DIL gave birth to my first granddaughter on the 4th of December. Carina fractured her coccyx or tail bone while delivering little Jenna-Lynn and she was home only six days when her cervical artery hemorrhaged causing her to lose 2 liters of blood. She is still quite weak so I ask that you would keep her in your prayers.
Thank you for praying and the Lord bless you all! Merry CHRISTmas and let's all remember the Reason for the Season is Jesus!
