Presence

“All the Christmas presents in the world are worth nothing without the presence of Christ.”  ~David Jeremiah

When I’m feeling overwhelmed with the seemingly endless and often routine shopping that surrounds Christmas, this thought grounds me.  If the people I love have Jesus, they have everything.  The only gift that matters in this short life.  He gives eternal life, which is a gift past all imaginings and expectations.  The flash and the sparkle fades away into a wooden manger; peace descends.   Blessings, Lisa

  1. “The flash and the sparkle fade away into a wooden manger; peace descends.” What an amazing thought and inspiring post! Thank you for grounding us today, as we hurry and scurry around!

    • Thank you so much for your encouragement. I have decided that today will be a day of no scurrying for me. (Now if I can just hold to it. 😉

    • Truth….I wish sometimes that we could just be there in the stable 2000 years ago, just for a second, and then we’d really understand.

I welcome your thoughts...
