Bow Down

We’re currently living in our rv.  Less than 200 square feet of living space! Some people couldn’t do it, but we find it comfortable and sufficient for us. Okay, when we’re both trying to get in our walking steps it definitely is hard, but otherwise we do just fine.

Yes, things are pared down to a minimum.  Our office supplies fit into a set of plastic drawers to give you an idea of how pared down we are. At home we each have a desk and a printer stand that holds our office supplies. Quite a difference. Clothing is a lot of repeated outfits and frequent laundry sessions, but we do just fine. Electronic devices hold lots of books and weigh so much less than the physical ones, but 2 books for sure always go with us-our personal Bibles. Yes, we have access again to a myraid number of translations, but especially for me, that personal Bible is filled with notes and underlining- things you can’t do in electronic ones as easily.

Where am I going with this one, you might wonder? Christmas decorations in an RV are minimal for the most part. We don’t have room to store a lot, and so decisions are made as to what to take and what not to take.  We have a string of 40 feet of lights, an olive wood nativity scene gotten in Jerusalem when I was much younger, a small porcelain nativity someone gave me long ago, a small lighted tree and two jingle bell door hangers my youngest made in school.

This morning as I was turning on the lights on our little Christmas tree, I noticed that Jesus was in His manger, but Mary and Joseph were bowing down beside Him. Yes, something had knocked them both down, but what went through my head at that moment was there will be a day we will all bow down to Jesus-every person who has ever lived and who is living and all those to come. Believers in Jesus Christ and those who do not believe. We will all bow down at the feet of Jesus Christ. Philippians 2:10-11 so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Just wondering, will you be one of those who willingly bow down or one of those whose heart is not willing to bow down?  It is your choice. I pray that you make the choice to choose Jesus as your Savior. It’s certainly going to make a difference in where you will spend eternity and how you bow down to Jesus Christ.

Have a very blessed Christmas!

  1. Dennis. Thank you for your continued interest in our blog and update. Look for a post soon updating all on our wanderings and health. Love you both. Nick & Boo


  2. I enjoyed your post as I always do. You are so right. We will all bow at the foot of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. That day is getting closer for many of us. We are both well for the moment. Our Sunday school class has really been hit with heart by-passes and broken shoulder to be replaced and hips to be replaced. Broken arms and broken legs are being dealt with in our class. Shirley has had both knees replaced, but that was several years ago. Other than that, we are doing fine and doing the hospital visits of members in our class. Taking them to appointments or rehab. God has been good, taking care of our needs and some of our wants.
    Today we woke up to snow on the ground and all the area schools closed including Retired Teachers that we go to once a month.
    Again, thank you for your post and we pray that you both are in good health at this time.


  3. So, those of us who don’t know what you are doing would like to know!!
    Blessed season for you both!


  4. Thanks for the. Uplifting blog. Glad you are settled. We are prepping for our 6 month trip, too. Trying to choose wisely what to take.
