Make Ready with a hot beverage or mug

A warm beverage on a chilly day. #makeready2016 #ilovemyshepherd #graftedheart

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever. John 14:16

Grab a peppermint mocha, a rich English Breakfast tea, or a hot chocolate overflowing with marshmallows, and sit for a moment to take in the Word. As the beverage warms you from the inside out just rest. We’re here, making ready for Christmas. This is such a loaded concept, filled with anticipation, dread, activity, stress, and any number of other things. Remember, though, the why behind it: Christ. He came, and He will come again. And while we wait, He sends His Spirit to fill us with love, with warmth, with peace, with His very presence.
