Gift

 

Of all the gifts I have ever received, the gift of God’s Son is truly the most indescribable gift of all!

This gift brings us into the family of God and makes us sons, daughters, and joint heirs with Jesus Christ.

It is little wonder that Paul exults when he said, "Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!"

I pray if you have not already accepted this wonderful invitation, you will today.

This passage definitely goes along with what you've said here...
Praying as always!
Galatians 4:3-6: Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

These words are always so very comforting to me! Praying!
John 14:1-3 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Oh how lovely! And right along with my thinking as well - how fun! And what a delightful way to share Christmas truths with all our grandchildren! ;) Have a blessed Christmas full of hugs and cuddles!

Blessings my dear Susan,

Now isn't this the absolute truth... and a beautiful light that you are shining on Jesus as always! You are totally enjoying and using your love of photography and capturing those special memories and adorable grandkids, etc. so well!

Jesus is the sweet aroma and wants us to be that fragrance to others as you do so well. Jesus is the INDESCRIBABLE GIFT... I did this verse a while ago but this shimmering GIFT gives God all the glory as the BEST and PERFECT GIFT topped off with your lovely words that express this with love!

Thank you Susan! May you and yours enJOY a blessed and merry Christmas, southern style with oodles of love!
Peggy
