Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Advent 2010 #3 - Presents
Here is a really great idea that a very dear friend of mine shared with me last week - which I share with permission. She is going to write out key Christmas Bible verses on small pieces of card and stick them on a few of the Christmas presents under her tree - each one to be read out before the present is opened, to remind everyone about Jesus in the midst of the wrapping paper frenzy. Genius. I think it would be exasperating to have too many, but maybe six or eight verses all up might be great - one or two each depending on the size of your family.
