Happy Birthday JESUS!

Today was a great day!  After all that has happened in the last couple of weeks to my little big family, it was good to just be together!

I'll be honest.  I didn't expect much at all…you know the saying, the older you get, your list gets smaller, and you really focus on what's important, BUT, I got some pretty amazing gifts, and I'm very grateful!

I've been praying whining about some things to God over and over…I'm sure He's super sick of hearing me, but in the event that I must embody the persistent widow, I didn't want to take any chances…lol!

Anyway, I couldn't help but reflect back on the last few weeks, and God is so in the details.  He sends little pieces of Him to encourage me when I need it the most.

He loves us, Oh how He loves us!!  Doesn't that just make you want to jump for J-O-Y?!?!

In the event that you need some encouragement, here are some truths you can stand on until your persistent prayer turns into a prevailing prayer:

1.  He cares about what you care about.
2.  He loves you.
3.  His timing is perfect.
4.  Grace abounds for you at every turn.
5.  God is not a liar.  He will do what he said He will do.

Merry, merry Christmas friends…I hope this day was filled with love and peace amongst you and your family!
