7 Days till Christmas
The tree is finally up and there are five gifts beneath it – one for each precious daughter and the ‘Green Box’ containing years of prayers to Jesus offering Him our gifts of praises and pledges. Some of those pledges we have kept and some we have not and He loves us anyway! Gifts for others are yet to be wrapped. Yesterday was full of now happy memories and today promises to be too. A Charlie Brown Christmas was never so grand as yesterday when Josh played Linus. And today Logan will sing.
It’s one week before Christmas and I am counting my blessings. I think it’s a very good faith exercise for today. Make your own list even if you only do it mentally.
And while you are naming your blessings count the old songs of Christian faith as one of your blessings. I am told that Count Your Many Blessings was written in 1897 by Johnson Oatman, Jr.
And I am thankful today for eyes that see, ears that ear, and fingers that type and sweet IDOKs who read and tears of joy as we worship our Savior and King. To Him be all the glory.
ABBA, Great is Your Faithfulness and in You we have all we need and so much more and we owe all to You Lord Jesus. Amen and amen.
Some time in the course of the day pray for this list below but in this moment right now just worship and praise our God.
And one more will really get you going. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcjDoMJBbu4&NR=1
