When I woke up, I told Bo that I felt like I had cotton mouth and he responded, "I have some water right here. Want some?" Of course I said, "Yes, thanks."
|Me and my Love at Christmas dinner.|
I was very thankful for the water that Bo had left in his water bottle. It was just what I needed to rid myself of that nasty feeling. I drank the water, went to the bathroom and then climbed back into bed...yes, my morning routine.
We all need refreshing water, nourishment for our bodies. At different times of the year, we use different things. Of course, water is necessary all year, every day of our lives.
How do you nourish\refresh your soul, daily...weekly...monthly...seasonally?
We have just finished up the Advent season that prepares us for the Saviors arrival on Christmas. We light candles each week as we focus on Hope, Peace, Joy and Love...all the things that Christ brings. We focus on scriptures and songs about His birth and the promises that He has for us and for the world. During the Christmas/Advent season, it is easy to find things to refresh our soul.
|My amazing Auntie. Singing at the|
Christmas Eve service. I love to hear her sing.
But how about after all the songs are over, after the tree is down and the candles are stored until next year? The star on top of your tree is in the box and no longer reminding us of how it pointed the way to where the Savior lay. Our nativities are in their proper place until it's time to display them again.

Well, I am not sure what works for you but I can tell you what works for me.
The Word (Bible)
Giving to others
When I sing, worship, read His Word...I can feel the refreshing water of His Holy Spirit wash over me. To tell the truth, it feels better than the bottle of water Bo gave me this morning.
So where is the light? I will be that light to the world...the star pointing others to Jesus.
that you may become
blameless and harmless,
children of God
without fault in the midst
of a crooked and perverse generation,
among whom you shine as lights in the world,
Philippians 2:15 NKJV
Where is the song? I will sing the song of the LORD. Declaring His wondrous works.
I pray you have found a way to nourish your soul and body today.
