“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”). Matthew 1:23 NIV
Immanuel is one of my favorite Christmas words. And it’s translation, “God-with- Us” comforts my soul. Recently, I realized that the prefix “com-” is a fitting one to contemplate this time of year because it means with or together.
Won’t you join me on a little adventure of searching out the with-ness of God through “com-” words this month?
Let’s be companions, sharing with one another the Bread of Life.
Let’s build a community sharing links and comments.
And I may even throw in a commercial or two, since I just opened my first ever Etsy shop today.
Come let’s journey and join hands to welcome Christmas, to welcome Jesus in our midst. This with-us GOD! I am confident that He will delight in our gathering.
Consider these offerings from two of my soulmates in the blogosphere:
And over at Expectantly Listening, enjoy some sweet contemplation for Advent.
Come, O Come, Emmanuel!
