My desire is that you have a Merry Christmas, one that involves family, friends, great food, wonderful conversations and a whole lot of fun!!
For those who may find themselves alone, I pray He will shower you with His peace and comfort and will make His presence known to you in ways you will know it was Him, Jesus our Savior.
My other desire is that you take the time to soak into your innermost being the reason why we are celebrating — Jesus’s birth, the man who changed everything. He left heaven to come to earth (digest that for a moment) and was conceived by the Holy Spirit, to Mary a 14-year-old virgin. He was delivered in the same manner as you and I.
Jesus, without one sin, died for us so that those of us who believe in Him and surrender our lives over to Him will have eternal life forever and ever!
While He was here on earth, He taught us how beautiful, kind, and loving His Father is (our Heavenly Father). He was patient and kind to those around Him, always eager to teach them about His Father and His love.
Jesus was strong, courageous, bold, loving and only did what His Father told him. He healed everyone that came to Him.
I love Him and what He stands for. He saved my life and took me under His wing. He whispers loving words to me and He sings over me at night. He forgave all of my sins to never bring them up again. He has never held a grudge towards me. He has never given up on me even after I messed up and felt I should give up because of my failures. He held out His hand with a loving smile on His face that melted my heart. He picked me up, brushed me off and walked forward with me as we carried on again together.
My Savior, my friend, my all, Happy birthday!
