After the last few harried weeks of decorating, baking, packaging, shopping, and complete exhaustion, I found myself dreading that MY Christmas wasn’t perfect enough. Actually, I found myself forgetting the true meaning of Christmas. Fortunately, I received a card that kicked me square in the face…
Little baby on the hay,
soon there’ll be another day
when nails shall pierce Your hands and feet
as You provide our sin’s defeat.
Risen Jesus on the throne,
we lift our praise to You alone~
for You’re the gift that we recieve
the moment that our hearts believe.
This Christmas, as you consider
all the awesome things
that come to you through
Jesus, GOD’S perfect gift,
remember that is is but a taste
of all the good things
that are yet to come
Thank GOD for this gift, His gift. No language can praise it enough!
II Corinthians 9:15 The Message
This morning, with better perspective, I realize that it’s not My Christmas. I was not the one born in a manger in Bethlehem. I’m truly thankful for GOD’S awesome gift…Jesus.
So, here’s to a very merry Christmas full of blessings, peace, and joy!
