Oh What a Beautiful Morning...

It came and went like a flash of lightning against a moonless sky. Christmas, a time for reflection and for sweet celebration of the Christ Child's birth was gone before I knew it.

Fun and festivities always mark this special season for our family, but this year one of the most precious times for me was seeing my fifteen month old granddaughter delight in the bath of balls that her Pop and I gave her.

I imagine that when I am appropriately thrilled by the good gifts that God so generously lavishes upon me, He is equally delighted. I hope He sees how deeply, sincerely grateful I am for the undeserved gift of His Son's salvation, and that my gratitude is constant--and never reliant on special circumstances, occasions, or holidays.
