And My husband and I just love her all the more for it! It has been a focus of sorts at all the needed times!
This Christmas in a worldly sense, was going to be the bleakest.
No money, no gifts, no food or groceries...But, if it weren't for our Faith in the God of Isaac, Abraham, and Jacob. Father of all the Universe! Heavenly Father of our Savior Jesus Christ born in us the Hope of Glory! We would be so pitiful by the World's standards.
Through God's People...He has sent money to buy some gifts, food for our Christmas dinner, clothes for little ones who needed them, boots for our oldest boy and for daddy, 40 rolls of toilet paper, yarn for a daughter learning to knit, Publix gift card, Olive Garden gift card, Currier and Ives plates to match my granny's plates, hot chocolate, chocolate covered pretzels, queen ann cherries, apple cider, fabric that I could not have ordered if I wanted to!!! I just can't even begin to share all the insights and love from friends and family! It is overwhelming! Because of God's Christmas, we are experiencing what a celebration of the infinite love and mercies of our Heavenly Lord and Savior! Oh Praise Him! Even if there were no gifts, even if there were no luxuries, even if there were no money! HE has still seen fit to bless us and we are joyous!
We are so thankful!
It has been a wonderful month of giving and receiving and it is not over...I just wish I had more to give!
May the Lord bless all who continue to do His will this month and every month of the years!
So we made a sign above our fireplace to also remind us!
|Pressed down, shaken together, and overflowing...|
|We are very blessed.|
