“Com-” : With,Together

“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:

  1. It’s so exciting to visit your shop for the first time 🙂 congratulations on opening up! Your journal is beautiful, what a great accompaniment to Dawn’s series. I’m so glad I found that just in time to start her prompts later today.

I love a dialogue. Be the first to start a discussion!
