The Greatest Gift Of All

For most small children, Christmas is a time of presents.  As they grow and mature, giving gifts becomes as important as receiving them.  Still later, children learn that there is an art to giving a special gift thoughtfully planned and prepared for the recipient.  Even more important and much more meaningful is the gift of Christmas Spirit.   Christmas Spirit comes from deep within you.  It lights up your entire being; it makes your attitude joyous and gracious.  It allows others to see the countenance of Christ on your face and in your smile.  Jesus is love and His love is contagious.  Consider for just a moment how a child feels when he sees a happy person, glowing from within with warm acceptance and a welcoming heart.  More than we realize, those memories of love and acceptance are images that can stay with a child for a lifetime.

If you can give a child the gift of the Christmas Spirit, then you’ve given them the greatest gift of all.

The Lord goes before You

Life is hard and exhausting.  Oh, don’t get me wrong!  I love my life, but with so many things going on around me it is easy to become overwhelmed.  My job and life has stretched me in so many ways, yet it has blessed me.  God has put me right here at this time and has put so many amazing people in my path to help me, encourage me and challenge me.  I thank God because he provided what I needed when I needed it.  There are always so many people in so many walks of life, with the perfect words at the right timing.

Deuteronomy 3 : 8 “It is the Lord that goes before you.  He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you.  Do not fear or be dismayed.” 

1 Corinthians 15 : 58 “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the works of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”

 

God is good!
