Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the father above with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.
During this Christmas season God has been blessing our family. We’ve been puposeful on keeping watch for His hand at work. It’s fun to be surprised and see Him work through His creation.
As I mentioned last week, my coworkers blessed our family with a beautiful mountain cabin for Christmas. Well, the Guest Services Manager surprised us with four additional days. So, we get to enjoy it for a full week. Awesome!
We have been blessed with our Facilities team making sure we are stocked with firewood. Also, we woke up to beautiful poinsettias placed on our porch. Wow!
I also mentioned we were given a wonderful fresh cut tree by a coworker. Another friend lent us some lights and a different frient lent us decorations for it and the cabin.
Day after day, we have been given Christmas presents from gift cards, basketball trading cards, clothes, money, cocoa mugs, candy, flowers and even bookmarks for which we had none. We are humbled by our community’s generosity.
All of these things are nice. However, the best gift God gave us is His son Jesus.
1 And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. 2 This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. 3 So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city.
4 Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, 5 to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. 6 So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. 7 And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
May you have a very Merry Christmas!
A friend invited us to see a train exhibit they were hosting at a their church. It was a colorful winter wonderland.
