Day 8: Just Because
Today is my daughter’s
I smile as my eyes fill with tears, remembering the day she was born.
The day that GOD chose for her to come into this world.
I remember looking into her eyes,
with the same expression that I had when
I looked into the eyes of all my children's eyes on the day of their birth~
in wonder and with such amazement
warming my heart in an unexplainable way.
As we all are preparing for
to celebrate the
Birth of our KING,
I think about
The day that HE was born to Mary~
a humble little girl.
I wonder what happened to her heart that day
when she looked into her precious BABY'S eyes.
I can’t even imagine. I bet her heart was on fire.
I bet she was a wee bit wondering~
"Why me? Why would GOD chose me to give such a gift?"
I have asked that question myself...
“Why me, LORD. Why would you chose me,
after all that I have done and after all that I continue to do,
to give me such a gift~ YOUR Precious SON?”
And GOD answers~
JUST BECAUSE I LOVE YOU!
So simple yet so hard to ingest~
HE loves me.
HE loves you.
I think of the words from the chorus of the song,
"Who Am I"~
"Not because of who I am. But because of what YOU'VE done.
Not because of what I’ve done. But because of who YOU are" (Casting Crowns)
It isn't about me. It isn’t about you.
It really is about
wanting to hand us all
HIS Gift of Love wrapped up in
HIS infant SON,
born 2021 years ago.
when I fix my eyes on
my eyes fill with tears
my heart gets warm as I experience
I remember how
has changed this heart of mine & continues to do so~
May you daily unwrap
This Precious BABY given to you from your FATHER above~
Today & the day after & the day after that...
it isn't about the Day JESUS was born,
as it is about
JESUS being born into your heart.
It is about this moment right now so you can experience all
Wrapped up in the swaddling cloth~
the most expensive gift that you will ever get~
JESUS was wrapped up in cloth so HE could wrap it on you.
"Thanks be to GOD for HIS Indescribable Gift!" (2 Corinthians 9:15)
my precious daughter.
to you every day as you daily enjoy all
was born to be
"CHRISTMAS EVERYDAY" (listen to the song below)
