On Duty

Out in those battlefields
are soldiers for Your cause.
So many are scattered
to carry their cross.
Whether in an actual military
or on a “field” trip,
they are reaching the lost
among the fellowship.
telling their story
by telling Yours,
while praying for You
to open hearts and doors.
Joy in the crowns
they gain for You,
to be laid at Your feet,
and celebrated too.
Be with Your soldiers
wherever they are.
Help them fight Your battle
and win Your war.

Gifts 2017 #23 Christmas Cards

IMG_20171225_035347

Christmas Countdown: Christmas Cards and notes are a gift! Christmas cards can cheer, encourage, lift a lonely soul, update, inform, or simply send a greeting. Praise the Lord for ones that explain the true meaning of Christ, or simply display the wonder of a Heavenly King coming as a manger baby to save a dying world.
I was blessed to receive 13 greetings… 6 by postal mail, 1 at church, 3 by email, 2 by Facebook Inbox, and one delightful international surprise phone call from my Australian daughter Andi! 🙂

Below are some of the cards. Some cannot be displayed or mentioned of sender or what country they serve as missionaries. But because they can see this post, I want to say, “Thank you! Merry Christmas! Praying for you! Me and God love you!”

I will be using this one to say Merry Christmas to each and every one of you! It’s a picture I took years ago of one I had but lost. I do not remember who sent it, but it is so beautiful! Happy Birthday to that little darling in the manger. ❤ I love you, Jesus!
