After many years of conservation concerns as expansion, deforestation, and greed for tourist dollars raised concern that our native koalas were being forced into extinction, this sign only 100 metres from our front entrance, has filled our hearts with JOY. Thank God for this sign of HOPE.
As all the early hype and commercialism of approaching Christmas festivities is swamping our airwaves I am determined to look for the SIGNS of HOPE in the midst of it all.
Signs of LOVE, CARE for one another and family gatherings that are more than about FOOD and PRESENTS and glitter.
Signs of HOPE and FAITH are often hidden under the trappings of a date on a calendar set aside to remember a BIRTHDAY.
We who believe and LOVE HIM remember with great thankfulness that we have already received the CHRISTMAS GIFT.
THE LIGHT OF CHRIST HAS ALREADY COME INTO THE WORLD.
Jesus said: ‘I have come as the LIGHT in this WORLD. Whoever abides in ME shall not walk in darkness but live in the LIGHT. JOHN 12:46
Let us all focus our attention on looking for the signs of HOPE and LIGHT as we walk these next few weeks before the Season of Remembrance of His first coming.
Let’s be overwhelmed by His Love, Joy, Peace, and Fullness of Life and we gently prepare what is necessary.
Blessings! and Peace! to all. a-men.
