It's Christmas Eve day

The wind is blowing, the wind chill is biting as I take my small dog out to do his business. I am reminded of the changing of seasons and how the cold comes whether we want it or not. But yet, in many ways it is refreshing to know that there is a constancy in the seasons that gives me courage and hope in the the God who rules the heavens.

This past year has been a challenge to all of us in so many different ways. How have we handled the challenge? At this point, I don't think it really matters because each of us is still moving forward into the new year. There is no stopping time--there is only the challenge to take each and every day and create it to be something where we are growing in our faith and acknowledging the Lordship of Jesus in our lives.

Isn't that part of our celebrations during Christmas--to recognize Jesus? To more fully grasp the incredible love that He has for us. To continue to understand in a deeper way the salvation that came because Jesus came? To learn to love the Lord more and as a result learn to love one another more? My prayer for myself and all who read this is that we may be kinder and more loving in 2021. That we would draw nearer to the Lord and understand His ways better. Let us live to the glory of God!
