Christmas Greetings

"...Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
and comes down from the Father of lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows....." (James 1:17)

 



If you're like me,
 you've dashed around trying to find the perfect gift
as we try our utmost to create the perfect holiday.
 
In fact with one shopping day left until Christmas,
you might still be searching!
 
Norman Rockwell
 
Work.  Gifts.  Food.  Baking  Decorations.  Friends.  Traveling.
Whew!
It's a stressful time......
and it's so easy for us to lose the real meaning of Christmas.
 
Most of what we buy is only for a moment in time.
It has no lasting value.
 
Toys break,
or are forgotten when the next "new thing" comes along.
 
Clothing is outgrown by the next season,
and sometimes left behind on the school bus.
 
We add another trinket to our collection,
and then bemoan the clutter.
 
 
But every good and perfect gift comes from God the Father,
and His Gift is eternal.
It doesn't break.
It doesn't tarnish.
It doesn't go out of style.
It doesn't need dusting, painting, fixing or pruning.
 
God's perfect Christmas gift to us is His Son, Jesus,
and God never gives anything but the best!
 
With deep gratitude for this gift,
a gift we can't buy,
we say,
"Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift." (2 Cor 9:15)
 
 
Wishing you a Joyous Christmas !
