CHRISTMAS P R E S E N C E ~ A PANTOUM



 

In the UK CHRISTMAS is the most important Festive Season of the YEAR.  Because of COVID 19 - many People GLOBALLY will be unable to meet with Friends & Family for Yuletide Festivities ! WE like to celebrate TOGETHER and Christmas PRESENCE is far more important then Christmas PRESENTS !  We have ordered a GAZEEBO so we can entertain both our Parents in the GARDEN for DINNER on BOXING DAY (December 26 !).  We are putting ou BIG TREE in the Front Garden for MULLED RIOJA & Nibbles on CHRISTMAS EVE !  Blessings & Love to ALL ~ ANGELA - BRIAN & SMOKEY  XOXOX 

 

PRESENTS or PRESENCE ?  We know which we*d prefer 

Especially at CHRISTMAS ~ Its a time to see our FOLKS !

Sending US a Present ? We*d much rather they*d be here

A precious time to meet our KIN ~ And share our Family Snaps & JOKES !

PRESENTS or PRESENCE That is the difference between the OLD & NEW Testaments in the BIBLE. The OT was a PRESENT from GOD (JEHOVAH) to Moses & The Prophets & The Priests & The Kings of the Jewish Nation.  The OT is profitable for Doctrine - Reproof - Correction & Instruction in Righteousness !  This is why it is included in the Christian BIBLE. 

The NT is quite different it is about the PRESENCE of GOD - dwelling among US on Earth - in the FORM of The Lord Jesus Christ - The Son of God - The second Person of the Trinity. Through Christ*s atoning Death on the Cross in AD 33 the Whole Human Race can have Salvation and Eternal Life in Heaven !  It is also about the PRESENCE of God*s Holy Spirit (Third Person of the TRINITY) on Earth and indwelling the Minds & Hearts of all Born Again Christians ~ AMEN !

    Presence does it for us, every time, my family and extended family don't do the Jesus thing, we have never felt the need. But if it works for you then that's O.K.
    Does Smokey get a wrapped pressie. Our daughter always did, and still does the family dog a Christmas present.
    Have fun.
