Best Gift to Give?

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace"
Isaiah 9:6

It's the most wonderful time of the year! We have been given the greatest gift: JESUS CHRIST.  As we dwell on that truth and teach our children, no matter what the ages, to do the same, then our constant companions will be Peace and Joy. We will become a family that overflows with God's love and that freely gives the best gift to give: Hope.  

"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life" Proverbs 13:12 

Ironically, but not surprisingly, the Christmas season can make us forget the hope we possess through Jesus. We often choose to exchange our peace and joy for much less worthy companions: Worry and Discontentment.  We have the power to stay on course with Peace and Joy.  To be an ambassador for Jesus Christ. Choose to do so. We have the power through the Holy Spirit, to give the best remedy for a sick heart: Hope.

Enjoy this day today my fellow sojourner.  Enjoy this Christmas season! My prayer for us today is found in Romans 15:13.

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit"

Merry Christmas with love from our family to yours through our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ!
