Today was a wonderful day. I spent a couple of hours wrapping Christmas gifts and listening to beautiful Christmas CD's by Travis Cottrell, Casting Crowns and Mandisa.
As I wrapped each gift, I said a prayer for the recipient. I enjoy picking out the perfect gift and then wrapping them in pretty paper and ribbons. As I wrapped, I thought about how much time and money we spend each year on buying the perfect gift. I began to ponder God's perfect gift to us, His Son Jesus. What if God had decided that we weren't worth saving? What if God hadn't sent Jesus to die in our place?
"For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
God's perfect gift came to us as a "baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger". Luke 2:12
Life is Good,
