Happy December 1,
of preparing our hearts for the
BIRTH OF THE BABY!
let's fast forward to
when there are 364 shopping days left until Christmas~
What do you see? What do you feel?
Are you happy it’s all over on THE DAY AFTER?
Think about it..
THE DAY AFTER~
any big day~
The Day After the vacation
The Day After the great news
The Day After the _________.
THE DAY AFTER~
What difference does the Birth of The Baby make in your life?
Does He keep giving on THE DAY AFTER?
Look again at the picture above of December 26th
and re-read the caption~
“DID YOU EVER NOTICE HOW ALL THE PRESENTS
ARE FAR MORE INTERESTING BEFORE YOU UNWRAP THEM?
The let down,
The SOMETHING is MISSING or are you MISSING SOMETHING?
Why is that?
First of all,
so much of the focus has all been wrapped up in the preparations beforehand~
the shopping and the decorations~
which have the power to dim out the light.
it is in the unwrapping of the things which
we believe will bring us
PEACE & JOY,
but when it is all said and done
something is missing.
On DECEMBER 26th, is there one unopened package under your tree?
Look at the cartoon again~
On the left side is a light where a little package remains in simple wrapping~
no bells and whistles,
untouched, ignored, missed,
just buried beneath the tinsel and the thistles. Yet
A Gift wrapped with Promises
which has the power to change
December 26 & the Days after that.
What is the one and only gift that delivers on all its promises?
It is all wrapped up in
THE CHRISTMAS STORY~
“For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior,
who is Christ the Lord." Luke 2:8-14~
Christmas is not about a day, or a season
as it continues beyond
THE DAY AFTER
THE DAY AFTER THAT
THE DAY AFTER THAT...
it is all about
THE BIRTH OF A BABY
in your life.
Gift that unwraps a
into your soul.
This GIFT that keeps giving as
One Size Fits All~
ALL of us~
who have such different stories,
yet ALL are offered the same GIFT.

Have you unwrapped THE BABY and are being wrapped in it?
Have you opened this GIFT, but have put HIM away for a bit
and forgot about HIM?
Have you heard about the GIFT,
yet don't know if your really opened it or not?
Have you not felt a need for this Gift?
