Devotions for Christmas A Celebration To Bring You Joy and Peace By: Zondervan I love the hard cover with the dark blue color they used for the cover and different sizes and colors of snowflakes stand out, it brings peace. The beautiful snowflakes falling makes me miss the North and the fun the kids and I use to have in the snow at Christmas time. What a neat little devotional for Christmas from Dec 1st. to Dec 25. This cute little devotional has a lot of meaning for thinking about Christmas differently then I use to. Like the gifts always seemed so important but it shouldn’t be the meaning of Christmas should make you first think of The Lord, that tiny little bundle that would one day set us free. He would give us the most precious gift of all “His Life” because He loved us that much. The devotion I read first was December 3rd “Heavenly Peace” this story told me something I never knew, it was an amazing story! Maybe it will surprise you too. This special devotional book will make you realize all the that Jesus went through even on that cold wintery night with no room at the warm inn for Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus to keep them from the very cold they endured, He was born in a stable Jesus even showed being humble at His birth. He could have been born in a fancy, wealthy home with warmth all around Him instead He chose to be born in a stable how humbling is that?? Now doesn’t that make you rethink Christmas meaning it did me!!!!!!! This beautiful book has a unique way of bringing the meaning of Christmas straight to your heart. The pictures are exquisite. Stop before you go on to read and just focus on the photographs just linger and drink in the beauty. Christmas for me was special when I had the kids around they sang as they helped decorate the tree we would stop to listen to the Carolers that were going around from house to house singing beautiful Christmas songs. I so miss the Carolers singing and wished Carolers would still go around singing those beautiful songs. People now an days are missing so much at Christmas that us old timers love and miss. Put Jesus front and center from now on. A must have. I received this beautiful devotional free from Booklookbloggers for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. 5 Stars ISBN 978-0-310-35608-0

"Seeing the Star, Their Joy Knew No Bounds!" Want a more exciting Christmas? Well, reading this little book will get that for you. This isn't done with some new ways to decorate your home, or with some wonderful Christmas recipes. Instead, what this book does is to daily decorate you on the inside for Christmas--to prepare you, heart and soul, for celebrating the birth of Christ. Starting with December first, and continuing through December thirty-first, there is a daily scripture along with an interesting commentary that makes each day's subject really come alive. Each verse is also elaborated on in a variety of ways--through the use of poems, the words of Christmas Carols, or beautiful pictures. The end result being your thoughts will be drawn in to really consider the essence of each day's verse. The daily readings don't take very long to read, just a few minutes out of the day. But that short time will enhance the Christmas season for the reader. Each section will give you something to mull over in your mind, and make the arrival of Christmas Day more meaningful. This well-made small, hardback book with high quality paper makes a very nice presentation, and because of that, would also make a lovely gift. I like that the devotions don't stop on Christmas day, but continue on through December 31st, New Year's Eve. By doing that, not only is your heart prepared for Christmas, but is made ready for a new year, as well. I highly recommend this 5-plus star book to anyone who wants to decorate differently for this year's Christmas--from the inside out. "Then the star appeared again, the same star they had seen in the eastern skies. It led them on until it hovered over the place of the child. They could hardly contain themselves: They were in the right place! They had arrived at the right time!" - Matthew 2:10 Zondervan Publishing has provided bookreadingtic with a complimentary copy of Devotions for Christmas, for the purpose of review.

Devotions for Christmas is the latest book, from Zondervan Publishers, that will encourage you in the days leading up to and through the Christmas season! This book is presented in such a way, as to lead you through daily devotions for each day of the month of December. The graphics and photography of this book make it a no-brainer to give to a friend or loved one as the perfect gift! I received this book from Zondervan in exchange for my unbiased review.

In the swirling busyness of December, take a moment to relax and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas. We all know that Christmas is a time to celebrate Christ the King born to us, to enjoy our family and friends, and to indulge in those annual traditions we look forward to every year. But even though we may understand the true reason for the season, far too few of us know how to celebrate Christmas as the time of peace that it is meant to be. With a rich, daily devotion for every day of December, Devotions for Christmas offers you a way to unplug and spend some time reconnecting with a childlike sense of wonder and joy at the mystery and blessings of Christmas. Settle in and enjoy peaceful and hope-inspired Devotions for Christmas. With a devotion for all thirty-one days in December, this book will take you past Christmas and get you ready for the New Year! Each day begins with a short Bible verse and ends with a prayer. The photographs are so beautiful and engaging, you'll want to leave this one out where company can pick it up and flip through it. The devotions are short - one to two minutes long - and would be appropriate for family gathering time or your morning 'alone' time. As the title indicates, they are all Christmas-themed, and will help to re-center your spirit on the true purpose of the season. In a world where holiday shopping begins in October and runs through January, this is a good book to settle in with and get back to the basics.
