"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ." Ephesians 1:3
Last year's decorations had been quickly packed, stored and stuffed in the attic. It was good enough for most items, but not the glass CHRISTmas bell. It was totally shattered. Better wrapping could have saved it.
How is your CHRISTmas season coming?
Shattered bells, shattered lives ~ and CHRISTmas still comes. It's near impossible to live 365 days without changes. Marriages, deaths, loss of income, sickness, births and other things happen. Some for the better, some not - as least through our eyes. During trials, i struggle, as my eyes shift down on me and not up to Him.
Father, there are times i am crushed by the world around me. Life can be hard, unpredictable and mean. And when i tackle it, without You, i shatter like glass. I need to be completely wrapped, protected and covered in Your Love, Wisdom and Will. Oh, how thankful i am for the wonderful CHRISTmas season! During this time, no matter what has happened the past 365 days, i am reminded and brought back to what really matters... You and Your unconditional Love. Thank You for my Savior!
have a celebration-filled day!
