The Balancing Act

I have been working on several new projects and seeking God’s wisdom on how to BALANCE life. WHY? In order to HONOR HIM. In today’s world we are saturated with technological savvy messages on how to get our product out there in order to grow our business. There are apps to help us schedule our advertising through Blogging, Facebook, and Instagram. 

Thankfully there is ancient wisdom still relevant for us today – Holy Scripture, to help us schedule our entire life for godly success. Psalm 23:3 reminds us to rest “for sake of His reputation.” Deuteronomy 30:15-17 warns us of the dangers of idolatry, putting our work (or other) before God. And finally Phil. 4:8 gives us a list of godly virtues in which to analyze our agenda and motivation by.

 I encourage you to consider Christ, and His way, and you will find balance and joy.

The Nativity, Yesterday and Tomorrow….

Last Christmas we bought our grand-daughter a Nativity Scene, I think it was the PlaySkool brand. For both of them we purchased a storybook about the Nativity, with incredible life like  illustrations, Room for a Little One: A Christmas Tale by Martin Waddell and Jason Cockcroft

This Christmas we cannot be with our grand-children and their parents, so I wanted to make the children something special in honour of our baby King, and to teach them about our very sacred family tradition. My husband bought me a Precious Moments Nativity Set some thirty years ago. Precious Moments are Sam Butcher’s creation. I pulled them back out of the box and crafted a story. Now that this little video has been made perhaps we’ll need to come up with another way to share the Nativity next year?

I did suggest to my family, (the ones that are here) that we go down to Hildebrand Motors and tell the story using their Nativity Scene, by moving the almost life size figures around, and video taping it. They thought that was a tad weird. It would have been great fun.

Anyway, thank you to Sam, Garage Band, and Facebook, oh yes and iMovie

A home made Christmas present for my two little grand-children….
