As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

"The Word Became Flesh"

Many years, a particular line from a Christmas carol will catch my attention and make its way into my heart.  One year it was the words "with the dawn of redeeming grace" and I pondered the dawn, the beginning of day -- the first peek, of His great grace that would redeem man.  Another time it was "God with man is now residing" and I marveled at the profound truth and the absurdity that the Creator God would choose to reside with man.

This year, the phrase that has stood out to me is this...

"Word of the Father, 
now in flesh appearing!"

The Word of the living God...coming in flesh, in human form...Immanuel..."God with us"...incomprehensible!

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father), full of grace and truth.  John 1:14


May the Word of Life be real to you this Christmas, as you ponder the meaning of His coming!  Merry, merry Christmas to you!


  1. Aren't these ponderings marvelous? We know that Jesus always was from the beginning of time so when he was "born" it was just the human part of Him. It truly is the most incredible thing, the most amazing love. So that's my pondering of late.

  2. It is amazing to ponder! What a gift. Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas! Yes, have enjoyed "meeting" you this year!

  3. Love this, Cheryl ~ so meaningful. Thank you for your sweet comment. A very Merry Christmas to you and your family!!
