Many apologies for not posting - I took on rather a lot of crafting for Christmas - but my New Year's resolution is already made, to pay more attention to my blogs. In the mean time, here are some thoughts I got from a dear friend a few years ago.
A Special Invitation to a Christmas Party
You are cordially invited to A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!
Guest of Honour: Jesus Christ
Date: Every day. Traditionally December 25th, but he's always around, so the date is flexible...
Time: Whenever you're ready (Please don't be late, though, or you'll miss out on all the fun!)
Place: In your heart... He'll meet you there (You'll hear him knock)
Attire: Come as you are... grubbies are okay. He'll be washing our clothes anyway. He said something about new white robes and crowns for everyone who stays till the last.
Tickets: Admission is free. He's already paid for everyone... (He says you wouldn't be able to afford it anyway... It cost Him everything He had. But you do need to accept the ticket!)
Refreshments: New wine, bread, and a far-out drink He calls 'Living Water,' followed by a supper that promises to be out of this world!
Gift Suggestions: Your life. He's one of those people who already has everything else. (He's very generous in return though. Just wait until you see what He has for you!)
Entertainment: Joy, Peace, Truth, Light, Life, Love, Real Happiness, Communion with God, Forgiveness, Eternity in Paradise, Contentment, and much more! (Bring your family and friends)
R.S.V.P. Very Important!
He must know ahead so He can reserve a spot for you at His table. Also He's keeping a list of His friends for future reference. He calls it the 'Lamb's Book of Life.'
Party being given by His kids (that's us!). Hope to see you there!
