Christmas Photo Journey // Day Nine: It’s a Sign

Photo prompt from Paper Coterie:

It’s a Sign:
There is nothing more fun than discovering the right word at the right time. It may be meaningful and telling or it could just be something random and entertaining. Signs can warn us, lead us, remind us or even state the obvious. Whatever the case, it's our job to interpret the signs as they pertain to our own lives. What the signs really say is up to us.

Note: Words and phrases are everywhere. We are inundated everyday with messages. Be aware of the words you take in each day. Seek out the affirmations, answers or reminders that are out there looking for you today!

Merry Christmas. There’s power in those words!

Merry means to be happy, joyful.  Christmas is derived from Khristos Maesse;  Khristos meaning  the anointed one and Maesse meaning  church festival.

To wish someone Merry Christmas is to wish them a joy-filled celebration of the Anointed One…and may I add, and His anointing!

The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.
(Luke 4:18-19)

Merry Christmas!
