Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth." Isaiah 40:28

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

Jesus said,
"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

But if you do not forgive men their sins,
your Father will not forgive your sins." Matthew 6:14,15

Keep your eyes open this week.......

.........ever watchful for the BEST gifts !

We found them 'round here !

Over the last few days, two of the most wonderful gifts were opened............HEARTS--full of love, and  MOUTHS -- full of laughter.

This Christmas, I have truly felt the closeness of family that I have so long missed .........not only that first, excited, reunited love, but the deeper, 'there every day, a real part of my life now' love.

I could not know this kind of happiness without first acknowledging the most important fact........my heavenly father loves ME.........I have done not one thing to deserve it, but am reminded daily of what a deep and abiding and unforgetting love it is.  I could never earn it, but knowing about HIS love and accepting it, I have a desire and a responsibility to live in a certain way and to share that love with those around me.

For all of my friends who read this and my family who checks in here too..........I have a need for you to know that I love you, more than you will ever know........your presence in my life is the second greatest present I could ever, ever, EVER ask for.  The best thing I can wish for you this Christmas is to be as blessed as I am........and you are.  If you don't feel it, or can see no sign of it......find out why.  Seek God's presence in your life and the first, most precious gift that HE gave YOU, the one that we're celebrating this weekend.    Please......claim it and know peace and joy no matter what else is going on in your life.

Then, you too will have a

and the happiest of new years !
