Not my Idea of a Very Merry Christmas Gift

Posted on December 21, 2009

I've gotten some chilling personal news here just prior to Christmas, and for about a week now, my soul has lost its courage. 

It, however, is being revived from the Lord's inner strengthening and the help of prayers and encouragement of some cherished friends. 

This setback may limit the number of blogs from me to you in 2010.  Of course, what I am referring to as a "setback" could turn out to be a wonderful God thing to advance his purpose, provided I am willing to allow my own expectations and agendas to die. 

I think the Lord is slowly bringing me around to His perspective.   I'll explain further soon in a blog entitled, "A Happy, Crappy New Year?"

Meanwhile, here at Christmas, I urge you to ponder how to patch up things with someone you may have gotten cross ways with this past year.  My wife is pondering such a possibility with a dear, dear family member.  She has had a deep misunderstanding with this precious loved one and is grieving over the rupture in fellowship. 

I am in hopes for both of them that 1 Peter 3:8 will shine through:  All of you should be of one mind, full of sympathy toward each other, loving one another with tender hearts and humble minds.  (NLT)
Merry, merry through Him!
