Let the Christmas festivities begin! We had a Ladies’ Christmas Tea at our church on Monday night. The theme for the night was, Gingerbread Girls & Grace. The theme for the decorations was obviously, gingerbread everything! We had gingerbread houses, gingerbread girls decorating the table, gingerbread favors, and of course cookies!
My daughter, Whitney was our speaker.
She used the analogy of making a gingerbread house and the disappointment hers would have been, had she entered our contest we hosted that night. She said hers would’ve…
- Not looked like yours.
- Not looked like she thought it would have.
The analogy is, neither does
- My life doesn’t look like yours.
- My life look like I thought it would.
Each of our lives is a story, written by God. We can never doubt His love for us, no matter. Lamentations 3:22, 23 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning, great is His faithfulness. The end goal is we become Christlike, therefore, we can embrace the struggles gladly.
What great truths these were. I’ll be looking at my Gingerbread attempt with these reminders in my heart!
Here are pictures of our wonderful evening at church…

Does your life look differently than you thought? Does your life look different than others’? See God’s Sovereign hand and his sufficient Grace shaping and molding you in your spiritual growth to become like Christ!

WOW – those are impressive gingerbread houses!! Sounds like a wonderful evening!
The ladies did a great job and it was such fun!
Looks like a beautiful evening! I love Lamentations 3:22-23…there is a lovely worship song based on these verses that is a wonderful “morning song” for worshipping the Lord.
It was, Jenny! I’ll have to find that song!
Oh my goodness! The gingerbread houses are wonderful. It sounds like such a wonderful event. I love Whitney’s analogy of using at the little houses as a comparison to our thoughts about ourselves. I know she was a wonderful speaker.
By the way, your little house is very cute.
Have a blessed week-end.
All the gingerbread houses were amazing! It was a fun contest, for sure! Yes, Whitney did a great job!
