Day 8: Your Forever Birthday


Today is my daughter’s

BIRTH~DAY.

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

CHRISTMAS DAY~

to celebrate the

Birth of our KING,

I think about

JESUS' BIRTH DAY,

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 of YOUR Precious SON?”

And GOD answers~

JUST BECAUSE I LOVE YOU!

So simple yet so hard to ingest~

JUST BECAUSE

HE loves me.

JUST BECAUSE

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

GOD

wanting to hand us all

HIS Gift of LOVE wrapped up in

BABY JESUS

born 2022 years ago.

Therefore,

when I fix my eyes on

JESUS

my eyes fill with tears

&

my heart gets warm as I experience

HIS FORGIVENESS

wrapped in

HIS LOVE

because of

HIS GRACE

&

I remember how

HE

has changed this heart of mine & continues to do so~

JUST BECAUSE!

May you daily unwrap

this Precious BABY given to you from your FATHER above,

today & the day after & the day after that...

JUST BECAUSE

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

HIS promises

wrapped up in the swaddling cloth,

the most expensive gift that you will ever get~

HIS

PEACE

JOY

LOVE

ACCEPTANCE

FORGIVENESS

&

HOPE~

JUST BECAUSE!

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)

Happy

BIRTH~DAY

my precious daughter.

&

Happy

BIRTH~DAY

to you

every day as you daily enjoy all

who the

BABY

was born to be

making it

"CHRISTMAS EVERYDAY" (listen to the song below)
