Christmas Every Day
I remember from years ago when a business in our town had a Christmas Sale…it was in a summer month. It was a cute idea, and it worked. And why not; when you stop to think about it, when we live with the Lord, it's Christmas every day!
I think about my own situation. At my age, waking up each morning is a wonderful gift. And with so many different parts in my body, if they're all still working, that's a miracle in itself! Remember…our brain is so much better than our computer, any way you try to compare them, it's laughable. And it's such a gift for me to still be living in my home, rather than in an "adult center." It's just impossible for us to appreciate all our blessings until we've had to do without them. Our walk, our talk, even my sitting here, punching letters without looking at them, is a blessing that God gave me when I was in high school, in typing class. He already had this website in mind when I was in my teens!
Those daily gifts just keep on…sight, hearing, taste, touch, memory…
there's just no end to them. And yet many people are like children who believe in Santa Clause, not thinking of saying "thank you" to someone they never see.
But again like children, there comes a time when we know there's a God, making every day a Christmas Day. And yet, many continue to ignore the source, and accept all of God's blessings as if the world owes them.
But God has an enemy, who wants you, and he'll urge you to keep partying. Don't listen to him; he's the father of lies. Give your heart to the one who has been giving you so much, in return for so little. It's time to show your appreciation. Tell Christ you want to thank Him for the world you've been enjoying. That way, it won't end; you’ll just move up.
