Today was a blah day. Stomach virus going through (yes that was a pun) our households right now. It makes everyone miserable and cranky.
Then I look at the bible reading for today. Yes it from Christ's birth or the Christmas story (however you wish to view it). And I think about how simple these verses are yet they are the beginning of a GREAT LOVE that many have yet to unwrap!
Even though it is simple, it is a complex LOVE. One that escapes space and time. One that so many of us search for and many may never find.
This isn't the love of a spouse, a best friend, an earthly parent, or sibling. This is the love of a Heavenly Father who chose to send HIS son to die for OUR sins. This is a love that can not be reproduced by giving gifts, cards, or chocolates to a special person in our lives. It is only reproduced by giving our lives to God and being an example to others.
I pray that your life shines of God's Love! I pray that no matter what stumbling block is in your way, you find a way up, over, or around it. Using it to further God's Kingdom!
Love you all!
