God’s in the small moments as well as the big moments. In other words, God is in the seemingly insignificant moments.

Remember those moments when you just wake up in the morning? You yawn while you are in that unique position of not being asleep but not fully awake. You may gently reflect on your dreams and the plans for the day.

God is in those moments. I know prayer is technically acknowledging God and having a conversation with God. However, God is aware of your thoughts and He wants to guide you as prepare for your day in the morning.

Have you ever though of that? The moments you chalked up to seemingly unimportant times like brushing your teeth and worrying about your bleeding gums because you haven’t been to a dentist recently. Or responding to a text message from a sick friend. Or listening to your favorite song on your noise cancellation headphones. Know God is right there with you.

Not only is God in the small moments; He is aware of the details of each second of your life.

I just to wish happy holidays from my family to yours!!

Here is a short Christmas poem:

jesus manger

DON’T FORGET

Don’t forget, dear ones

That Jesus is the reason we celebrate

Maybe today we can model Him

And rejoice in our salvation

Let go of petty hate

 

He offers presents of love

And gifts of grace

Maybe today we can believe

And bless each other

We just want to behold His face

Here is a little humor rendition of the song, Santa Baby.

Santa baby, you hide the evidence once more
You have been an awful bad boy
Santa baby, walk out the front door

Santa baby, to sleep tonight would be nice, my mind is sore
I won’t wait up for you, dear

Think of all the fun I’ve missed
Think of all the gals you have more than kissed
Next year I will stay good
If you could sign the papers, dear

Santa baby, I want a new man, give me an amen
You have been a bad boy all year
Santa baby, I won’t wait up

Santa honey one thing I really do need, a prenup
To get the money that belongs to me
I won’t leave no cookies or milk cup

Santa cutie, fill my desires by taking your things
Sign your name on the line
Santa cutie, oh, what anger you bring

Don’t come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tiffany
I really don’t believe in you
Let’s see if you will listen to me
Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, here’s my ring

I don’t mean on the phone
Santa baby, I won’t wait up
Don’t hurry down my chimney tonight
Don’t hurry, tonight

Here is the original song (sung by Eartha Kitt and written by Joan Javits):

Santa Baby

That sinister seed

Is watered in greed

It’s time to get our heads above the dirt

Because you know satan roams the Earth

Time to get power from above

He has no ways to dismantle the love

 

Love is the protective wall

That causes the enemy to fall

Once we know our indentity

He must submit to that Calvary tree

Lord show us we are in you

Make us like the Bride you always knew

Loving someone is only half the battle

Time to serve the hearty soup with a ladle

It’s the moment to serve love

Because you deserve love

 

You say you don’t deserve affection

Because you have gone your own direction

But you were born for love

So now it’s time to pour love

 

Please don’t forget the fact

That serving is such a selfless act

I know you yearn for love

So now it’s your turn for love
