Merry Christmas! I wanted to be sure to wish all my blog friends and readers a Christmas full of Love, Peace, and Joy to the fullest that was intended that very first Christmas so many years ago. I found myself really thinking about all the different aspects of that amazing season; not just that night but many years to follow. The incredible amount of faith that was displayed and the humility that was shown. And it was all so that we may have a life of peace.......not a peaceful life (without any disruptions).....but a life of peace, knowing that we have been blessed with a choice. A choice to have a personal relationship with a God who loves us enough to care about every small and big circumstance going on in our lives. A God who loves us enough to give us that peace, even when the storms come and the waves seem unbarable.
I have been touched this Christmas with seeing the most humble form of servant hood that I've seen in a long time. There is a member in my extended family that has humbled himself and shown the love of Christ to those around him like I've never seen before. Without a doubt, this season has been full of miracles because of it and watching him be the extend hands of Jesus has been the most memorable holiday time that I have learned from and will cherish. I am completely inspired to do better at putting others first before myself and to never try and do it with my own strength. I am so blessed. So so blessed.
My hearts prayer is that you and your family also know of this greatest gift that was ever given and that this holiday season and new year is full of His presence.
From our home to yours, Merry Christmas!!
