As I grow older, I am becoming more conscious of the fact and I can't move, breathe, be a part of this world if it was not for our Heavenly Father. I imagine as we are in the dreadful Flesh, we take all things and GOD for granted. It takes a conscious effort to thank Him for ALL THINGS...the good, the bad, and the unpretty. It takes even more concentration to Glorify God with what we have been given by HIM.
This Christmas let us truly F O C U S on what the season is about. WE say Jesus is the Reason for Christmas, and it is...yet, I personally need to walk it, feel it, express it, taste it, and share it with ALL. This world is lost with lost people walking the planet daily. But, we have the love and knowledge of the Father. This knowledge gives us the power to bring hope, joy, perseverance and love to people who would otherwise do not know that they are needed and wanted by our Savior. He died for them/us to give all, who believe, everlasting life.
AND, EVERLASTING LIFE is the ULTIMATE Christmas GIFT that we NEED!
