Merry Christmas! I hope your day is filled with lots and lots of love and light. To celebrate the birth of our Savior, I wanted to repost about my most meaningful Christmas (below). To me, this is what the light and hope of Christmas is all about. I was reminded of this just this past week when I went to my doctors appointment. My lung function was down again. I shed a lot of tears. It is easy to live in denial that I am slowly dying when I feel so alive and keep so busy. But in truth, I am blessed to be alive every single day. But because of Jesus Christ, I need not fear anything, even death. Because of Christ, – his birth, his sacrifice, his resurrection – we can all live together forever with our families.
“For unto us a achild is born, unto us a son is given; and his name shall be called, Wonderful, Counselor, The cMighty God, The dEverlasting Father, The Prince of ePeace.” Isaiah 9:6
He conquered death, and in doing so He also conquered fear, giving us the gift of peace. May we always honor his sacred gift today and throughout the year by treating his children – all he has given his life for – with more patience, more compassion, more generosity and more selflessness.
