Day 16: The Grinch
I know CHRISTmas isn't for another 63 days,
but last night I was dreaming about "The Grinch Who Stole CHRISTmas".
In my dream I kept questioning
how can someone steal CHRISTmas if it is in your heart?
As the story goes, when every Who in Whoville woke up on CHRISTmas morning
even though there were no presents & just stripped down CHRISTmas trees
they still joined together
and sang for
Not even the Grinchiest Grinch could steal
the JOY from their hearts
because their JOY was from within
and not from without.
I am thankful for this dream
as it was a reminder that no one can steal
who we are
or even choose where we will spend eternity.
REALITY is that it is
our choice to choose
The Grinch may be a made up character
yet with a REALITY message
that when everything is stripped away
where is your JOY rooted?
"I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish;
no one will snatch them out of my hand.
My FATHER, who has given them to ME, is greater than all;
no one can snatch them out of MY FATHER'S hand.
I and the FATHER are ONE” (John 10:28-30)
today, tomorrow & forever!
