Our Bradford Exchange catalog came yesterday. It is a tribute to Thomas Kinkade. It is filled with items displaying his beautiful work. I have enjoyed Kinkade’s work for many years – was saddened when he died in April of this year. But I’m off point.
The catalog is filled with items to purchase and, yes, Christmas promoting is predominate. And in all the predominance JESUS gets one page. One page! And whose birthday is Christmas? And so I have been singing a song this morning. Let me share it with you.
But today is not Christmas. Today we do not officially celebrate the birth of our Savior – but we should!
In fact celebrating that JESUS is would make Isabel’s birthday all the more fun! She is the big 10 today! So today is a day of celebrating.
For sure. For sure. Each of us has something we can celebrate today.
So today’s challenge: What are you celebrating today?
John 3:16 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Thank You, JESUS, for coming for me! Thank You for abiding forever for me. I love You, LORD. And, ABBA, thank You, for ten years ago today. The birth of a joy to this family. It is my heart’s desire that all her days she lives to give You glory. That she grows to be a godly woman, a woman with kindness on her lips and deeds of good walked out with feet bearing Your Gospel and hands helping the poor and the lost. And not just Isabel but all of us who have received You as LORD and Savior. Make it so, LORD. Make it so.
