As the snow is swirling around outside, I also feel the emotions swirling around in my head and heart. It’s simply amazing to me how God loves me! I have so much to be thankful for… starting with a God who loves me no matter what I have done or will do. God has given me a husband who takes good care of me and loves me despite my faults (so he says! Ha!) and a son who is my heart and the best gift ever!
Especially with all the current issues going on in the world, it’s easy to get off track with our thoughts and be consumed with all of the hate and darkness. And then I am guided back through his whispers to the fact that he knew me and loved me even before I was formed in my mother’s womb. He loved me before I came to know him as my Lord and Savior and he loved me enough to have my name in the book of life! How awesome is that?
So as we get ready for this holiday season, I am also reminded of the fact that God’s son, Jesus Christ, is THE reason for the season! God loved you and me enough to send his only begotten Son so that we should have eternal life! Have a very blessed and Merry Christmas!
