Can you beleive it........
Tomorrow is December 1st. Where did this year go? We have been so blessed this year. I sit here not even a week after Thanksgiving and I am in awe at our Lord. Jesus has been so faithful, true, and constant. I was reading different posts on the hustle and bustle of shopping. And I am so Thankful to be content. I have not always been this content in my life. Always wondering what the grass was like on the other side of the fence. But in my ripe old age of 35, I have learned so much. It's not always as it seems. Even the rich have problems, desires, insecurities and wants. And it all comes at a price. So here I am still Thankful. I want this to be the always Vicki. Not just when It's Thanksgiving, anyone can do that.I want to be thankful for what I have and what I don't have. I have little desires, and I am so happy. Just had to add that because I am content does NOT mean my life is perfect. Because it is not:) Sure I could make a list for you of all the things that are wrong. But instead I choose to look at all the Good. It is a choice....and only you can make it for yourself!! Jesus makes a way when there seems no way. He gives grace to the humble. He is available to those who seek him. So dear friends, let me encourage you to SEEK him. What a wonderful time to seek the Father. He is the best Christmas present you could give yourself and others. Please don't get distracted with the world and the things of this world. For it will pass away. But he will NEVER pass away.
Here are some scriptures to mediatae on this Christmas Season:
And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy–the Son of God.
“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us).
And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear. (10) And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the people. (11) For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. (12) And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, (14) “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
