We all have those people in our lives. You know…the ones who have all of their Christmas shopping done…and wrapped…before Halloween. I’ve tried to do that before and guess what-? I end up going WAY overboard. Today I am thankful that I’ve got a good start to Christmas gifts…and have some good ideas going forward. Since we are forecasted to get snow here in the mitten state tonight, I think I will be in more in the mood to address Christmas cards and maybe even wrap a gift or two. Overall it’s nice to have a little bit of a head start to the Christmas season.
This week in Bible Study we are studying Isaiah 7, specifically Immanuel, God with us. When I think of Christmas I think of Jesus, being very nature God, and fully human wrapped in flesh and dwelling among us. What an amazing gift. Today I am thankful for a head start to thinking about Christmas and that the best gift of all is Jesus.
