Christmas Devotional

The  devotions and memories shared here are intimate personal lessons I have gleaned from nearly seven decades of Christmases.  For my followers who have enjoyed my daily inspirational readings all year here are stories celebrating our Savior’s birth in simpler times. I pray they may stir in you as they did in me greatness of God’s gift and the humility of the manger. This year’s devotional is just 30 days of readings and is available in  in both large print and standard as well as in e-book format on Amazon.

Christmas Devotional

“O tidings of comfort and joy” goes the end of the chorus of the 18th century English carol. Hearing the strains of this melody stirs in many of us the picture of shepherds surrounding Bethlehem’s manger with wise men just over the horizon bearing gold, frankincense and Myrrh. While all of these images are true to the lyrics and the season, our own journey on this telling will begin in Nazareth. These glad tidings given came to Mary, then Joseph, the shepherds, wise men and now for anyone who will be willing to listen. This year I am offering two 30 day devotionals for advent reading. The Path to Bethlehem contains some content from last year’s reader with some updating and several additional daily readings. 30 Days of Comfort and Joy is entirely new for this year. I hope that one that one of these will be a blessing to my readers this year. You could follow the links I have inserted to find these or search yourself on Amazon. These are each in both e-book and paperback format.
