The gift of His Son, Who humbled Himself and incarnated himself in a virgin's womb.
The gift of my salvation and reconciliation to God, purchased at the price of His Son's suffering and death -- suffering that I deserved, and He did not. A gift that I did everything to forfeit, but received anyway by His grace.
|I prayed for this child|
The gift of my sweet family -- my loving husband, the toddler that helps me see my own sin and understand my relationship to God, and the sweet little one who is so relaxed and lets me cuddle her to my heart's content.
As I contemplate all I have, I realize that
every blessing has been given to me
every blessing is undeserved
every blessing points to the love of a God Who loves me for reasons I cannot comprehend
As this busy season of the year flies past, I pray that I will not be too preoccupied to give thanks for God's many blessings. To Him be praise and glory forever and ever!
