Keeping it simple...
Merry Christmas. Peace on earth.
Good will to all children, women, and men everywhere.
I pray that you will find peace in your heart,
in your home, in all areas of your life.
And do what the ornament says: look up. ask for help.
wait and pray. have faith.
At the end of the most quoted Bible story (at this time of year anyway),
I re-discovered a verse I've skimmed over dozens of times.
Luke 1:45 - Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished.
I want to be one of those blessed women.
One who believes.
One who looks up, prays, waits, has faith.
Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief.
