I have a whole new perspective on the incredible way our God chose to enter the world. The King of kings, Creator of Heaven and Earth, The One who breathed life into existence… he was a newborn bub, very much like the many I have witnessed come into the world. During my last delivery in India I was very aware of each moment… I wanted to remember each detail of what happened and how I felt and the general wonder of the moment. I cannot cease to be amazed at the miracle of life! It’s so precious, perfect, and fragile.
This year I have much to be thankful for! I’m a poor reflection of Christ even at my best moments, but he still grants me forgiveness and mercy and grace. He still lavishes me with incredible blessing and love. He still pursues me and holds plans for my future. I am grateful for his righteousness that clothes me and his blood that cleanses my soul.
