Christmas Hymn by Nita Brainard + WholeHearted Wednesdays #71



I am sharing this poem again this year that a dear friend, Nita Brainard wrote, who blogs over at Pilgrim Purse ~ and Poetry. Besides being a poet, Nita crotchets the most beautiful items. You’ll just have to stop over and see!!

Oh, do you believe in my Savior?
You honor the day of His birth,
But have you received His forgiveness,
And seen Him for what He is worth?

He came as a babe in a manger,
And  humbly He dwelt among men,
Yet He is the high King of heaven:
In judgement He’s coming again.

He’s righteous and holy and perfect.
His judgments are all of them right.
We fall so far short of His glory,
That all are condemned in His sight.

I beg you to call on His mercy,
Before your short life is all spent.
He’s free with His grace and forgiveness,
And offers a chance to repent.

Don’t cling to your own silly merit;
Don’t cling to your sins or your pride;
But give yourself now to the Savior,
Today for Christ Jesus decide.

WholeHearted Wednesdays #71




Welcome to the 71st edition of WholeHearted Wednesdays!!

Last week was another AMAZING party!!

There were 74 LINKUPS!!

Thanks so much ladies!!

There really wasn’t anyone who had ‘the’ most clicks this week

as there was a bunch with the same amount.

So here are a couple posts that were very interesting:

Kathie Morrisey over at Character Corner shared

Seven Tips to a Stress Free Holiday Season


 I do my best to read all your posts each week but it just is impossible, I am so sorry!! I Pin many many of them on Pinterest, so visit my WholeHearted Wednesday Board to see what I’ve shared!!


There will be NO WholeHearted Wednesday on Wednesday, December 25th, 2013 as I will be enjoying my family. I will be back with WholeHearted Wednesdays the following week on either Monday or Tuesday. I will send out an email letting you know when the party goes live (so sign up if you haven’t already!!

There are two reasons that I don’t get everything done here at WholeHearted Home (like reading every posts my sweet friends linkup or replying to every single comment and linking up for your party) and why I have dishes to put away, a basket of laundry to fold, and ironing stacking up.



After this week, I am taking a week break from my blog and will be back on Monday, December 30th.  I haven’t seen my son and his wife in a year, so I will be wholeheartedly at home and not blogging.


Blessed At Home is every Thursday at WholeHearted Home

Judith lives in the beautiful Pocono Mountains with the most amazing husband for the past thirty-five fleeting years. She has been blessed with seven wonderful children through birth, adoption, and tubal reversal. When her oldest was five, she quit her job on the night shift and homeschooled for over twenty-five years. God has taken the imperfections of her life and keeps turning them into something that can be used for His glory. She writes in her spare time over at WholeHearted Home to inspire and equip women for holy living with joyfilled hearts.

  4. Judith…loved the poem you shared. My favorite lines: Don’t cling to your own silly merit; Don’t cling to your sins or your pride; But give yourself now to the Savior, Today for Christ Jesus decide.” Enjoy your family and time off sweet friend. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
