Dear Lord Jesus . . .
You know how excited I am for today.
I've hung the boughs of cedar. . .
I've washed my floors clean. . .
I've sewn the ribbons and tied them into bows ..
and now I watch and wait.
May the bungalow be a place where love is felt.. .
where peace is found within.
Thank you Lord for the gift of this day.
Thank you for each guest that comes to the door.
When I think of how I have prepared each room with love. . .
wanting everything to be just right. . .
I think of you ..
and how much more. . .you wait for each of us . . .
to come to you.
I think of how much you must love us . .
and how you came to earth as a wee babe. .
and then died as a sacrificial lamb . .
Lord Jesus. .
I celebrate you today.
You are the reason of this season.
May the blessings of this day reach far beyond what my eyes can see.
For all you have given me. .
I joyfully return this one small thing.
All for now . .
