Speaking of Christmas and gifts I had the opportunity to get a special birthday gift for my friend Kristine the other day. We met at a bible study a few years back. The first day they called all the teachers forward and she was one of them and in my mind I picked her...not knowing she would actually be my teacher. Don't know why she stood out or why I wanted her, but God has definitely put her in my life and she is such a special friend that I can share my faith with.
So it was only fitting when I found this nativity that I knew it should be hers. Have you ever found a gift and knew it was perfect?? Isn't that the best feeling? That saying is so true that giving is better than receiving. I know this first hand. The excitement of repainting this manger and fixing the light.
Fussing over the details...putting it all together to bless her. Well it was such a blessing to ME!
Can't help but think and compare what the Lord felt when he sent his son...the PERFECT GIFT for us. Can you even imagine...the excitement, the thrill of knowing his son would be the savior of the whole world?? How when he was putting his plan together he thought of each one of our faces. Faces that needed a Savior. For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given...oh it's the sweetest most perfect gift ever!!!
Have a blessed day.
