In this episode of Flourish-Meant, Tina Yeager and guest Jeannie Waters explore how we can experience the gifts of God's presence not only during Christmas but in our daily lives. They delve into the importance of focusing on the spiritual meaning of Christmas and creating a connection with God, even in the midst of busyness. Jeannie shares insights on pulling up a chair to God's table through prayer, Bible study, and continual conversation with Him. The conversation also addresses the difference between our emotional state and the spiritual truth of God's presence as well as the gifts we give to God and receive from Him. Jeannie encourages listeners to not only enjoy their time with God but also to extend the table of God's presence to others through love, acceptance, and sharing one's walk with Christ. Tune in to this episode for an inspiring message and practical tips on experiencing and sharing God's presence beyond Christmas.

Jeannie Waters is an award-winning Southern author, speaker, and blogger who shares a homespun mix of biblical truth and heart-hugging encouragement.

Jeannie and Tina discussed practical ways to connect with God and share His gifts with others. Here are some key takeaways from our conversation:

1. Pulling Up a Chair to God's Table: Spending intentional time in prayer and Bible study to focus on God's gifts and His presence, allowing us to start each day with purpose and joy.

2. Surrendering Ourselves to God: Offering our time, thoughts, and actions to God as a gift, seeking His guidance and embracing the opportunities to share His love and grace with those around us.

3. Sharing God's Love and Grace: Embracing the opportunity to welcome others, share in conversation, and extend acceptance and love, thus becoming a reflection of God's presence in the lives of those we encounter.
