A Bit About me

Welcome to my personal weblog! I have many areas of interest as a Christian wife and home schooling mother of 6 girls: writing, poetry, website design, digital photography, a home business (sewing); however, this blog will focus more on the wonderful journey the Lord has brought our family through and what the Lord has shown me in His Holy Word.


I know that my devotionals don't often speak of specifics in our lives, but I want my readers to know that what I write comes most often from what the Lord is doing in our lives, or has done. I don't just repeat words by this preacher or that one. My devotionals are often written through a haze of tears, sometimes in grief, sometimes in peace at God's goodness for what He is doing for our good. At other times, after a flood of tears over my lack of faith in His great plan for us, especially after I've seen Heaven's gates open in another miraculous answer to prayer. What I write is what God shows me through those trials which He brings because of His great goodness as He works out His perfect plan. - Angela.

What Does Christmas Mean to Me?

What Does Christmas Mean to Me?

Forts so grand and snow ball fights,
Plump little men made of snow.
Sledding down hills (oh what a sight),
With cold red faces all aglow.

Lights that sparkle on garlands of pine,
How they twinkle, how they shine!
And glimmering tinsel on the tree,
Hiding presents for you and for me.

Time spent with loved ones so dear,
Singing, gathered ’round the tree,
“Jingle Bells” and “Rudolph the Reindeer” –
Is this what Christmas means to me?

Nay, oh what wonder, Yea, what delight!
As I focus on Christmas love;
How Emmanuel, God with us,
Came down to earth from above.

Christmas is just the beginning,
A necessary part of His plan.
He sent the Saviour, The Lord and King,
To die for fallen man.

To die, but the story does not end there,
On that sorrowful hill called Mount Calvary.
Three days later, He arose! My sin’s paid for!
The gift of God – salvation – is full and free.

Jesus’ birth, His life, and yea, His death,
Whosoever will may come is His plea!
My soul’s redemption by His great sacrifice –
This is what Christmas means to me.
