Merry Christmas!

We are so thankful for this time of year.  It is such a blessing to be with family and friends.  To be with the loved ones in your life that mean a lot to you.  The  most wonderful part is to be able to focus on the One who came to save us all, the miracle of His birth and the wonder of God's miraculous plan.  I am so thankful for my salvation and what Christ has done in my life.  I am thankful for what He has done in my husbands life and the spiritual leader he is in our home.  I am thankful for what Christ is doing in our son's life.

Isaiah 9:2-7

2 The people who walked in darkness
      Have seen a great light;
      Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death,
      Upon them a light has shined.
       3 You have multiplied the nation
      And increased its joy;[a]
      They rejoice before You
      According to the joy of harvest,
      As men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
       4 For You have broken the yoke of his burden
      And the staff of his shoulder,
      The rod of his oppressor,
      As in the day of Midian.
       5 For every warrior’s sandal from the noisy battle,
      And garments rolled in blood,
      Will be used for burning and fuel of fire.
       6 For unto us a Child is born,
      Unto us a Son is given;
      And the government will be upon His shoulder.
      And His name will be called
      Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
      Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
       7 Of the increase of His government and peace
      There will be no end,
      Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
      To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
      From that time forward, even forever.
      The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

His love for each and everyone of us is so vast and powerful, so perfect and free.  He came to us as a child and became man so that He could live among us and teach us His ways.   There is life in this Savior that is free for every single person on this planet.  As we celebrate the birth of our Great Savior, if you do not know Christ, I challenge you to choose Life today. 

John 3:16
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that who soever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family and loved ones.  I also hope that you find the true Joy that only Christ can offer us through salvation in Him. 

Merry Christmas!
