I can't believe it is already December 1st! Where did the year go?
December is a wonderful month. It is the month of celebrating the birth of Christ; Christmas trees; festive decorations; attending holiday parties; exchanging gifts; receiving Christmas cards from people you haven't seen in years; spending time with family and friends; as well as celebrating my birthday.
December is the twelfth and last month of the year. December got its name from the Latin word decem(meaning ten) because it was originally the tenth month of the year in the Roman calendar, which began in March.
December means winter, colder temperatures and possibly snow(depending on where you live).
As you begin this new month, take the time to enjoy it! For a month that is suppose to be a time of joy and happiness, it is a month of sadness and stress for others.
My prayer for you as you start this new month is that you will know that December is a month of "hope". The message of hope was fulfilled in the birth of Christ. In the year of 700 B.C., the prophet of Isaiah spoke about a child being born and that he would be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. Take time to ponder on this message. God will change you and give you the peace that you need.
Share the joy of "Merry Christmas"!
