The Best Christmas Gift Ever

Things are winding down at our house,
My baking is done...praise God,
Although the noshing still remains...have mercy.
Presents are wrapped.
Children are gathering in,
my work holidays begin,

and I can feel that quiet peacefulness
that settles over me during this season.

I always find myself a little nostalgic
during the Christmas season.
And, I think about the last few Christmases past...
filled with remembrances of loss...and grief.
  a bit of it lingers this Christmas season...just a bit.

But, I am reminded, by that sweet soft nudging on my heart strings,
of what this season means...and what it brings.

For God so loved the world, He gave His one and only son,
 that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
John 3:16

Yes, the best gift ever.
Wishing you a Christmas filled with the love of the Father, the miracle of Jesus...peace, comfort, and joy.
