Advent: Wednesday, December 18 . . . Joy


Today’s Advent message on our podcast and in our article is dedicated to a wonderful woman, Devonia Mikkelson. She took a risk of faith with us and boldly helped start a church.

Devonia was in her mid-eighties . . . when she joined our team . . . with conviction and belief in what we were hoping to accomplish.

Devonia’s death left a space at the table. We are grateful for her friendship, leadership, and legacy of words.

Listen . . .

Think On This . . .

We sat at the table together—all ages, young and old, sharing lunch and conversation.  One of our favorites . . . Devonia Mikkelson . . . always made sure she sat at our table . . . changing the dynamics of the conversation . . . with her sense of humor and wisdom.  

We all leaned in to listen, ready to laugh as well as to receive her wisdom.

On her last Sunday on earth, she gave a four point message of the way to experience joy:

“Slow down.
Pay attention.
Appreciate the moment.
Enjoy your life now.” ~Devonia Mikkelson

There’s nothing to add to this message . . . it’s truth and wisdom . . .   especially in this Christmas season of joy.

Light Three Candles

Today . . .

light the candle symbolizing hope . . .  

light the candle symbolizing love . . .

and light the candle symbolizing joy. 

intentionally focus on the joy in the moment.

Merry Christmas!

Perspective . . . 

How did I deserve such a remarkable honor
    to have the mother of my Lord come and visit me?
The moment you came in the door and greeted me,
    my baby danced inside me with ecstatic joy!
Great favor is upon you, for you have believed
    every word spoken to you from the Lord” (Luke 1:43-45 (TPT)).
