A Simple Reminder…

I’m up in the middle of the night. The house is silent, and all is dark except the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree. Ahhh, is one of my favorite moments of all time. (right up there with the grandbabies giggling) A moment to just sit in the dark. A moment to reflect, count my blessings and experience peace.

And there He is. Do you see him? Front and center, under the tree, surrounded by gifts of love. Jesus.

Jesus, my savior. Jesus, my rock. Jesus, my shelter. Jesus, the light unto my path. Jesus, my father. Jesus, my friend.  Jesus my provider.  Jesus my strength.   Jesus, my hope

I sing a song in my heart that I remember from years ago.
“Oh how he loves you and me. Oh how he loves you and me. He gave His life, what
 more could He give? Oh how He loves you, Oh how He loves me..Oh how He loves
you and me.”

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 1 John 4:10 NIV

Wishing you all a blessed Christmas and, Happy Birthday Jesus.

About 49andcounting

Hi! I'm a mom, wife, grammy, sister, friend at that ALMOST 50 age!! (Okay, since I started this a few years ago...well, add a bit to 49andcounting!) How the heck did I get here so fast?!? I love, love, love- my girls, antiques, rural America, history, Jesus, junkin,the lake and my Big Boy...not particularly in that order. It's about time I change this profile a bit. After a year or living in our 5th wheel in beautiful Pennsylvania, My Big Boy and I are back to the Kansas Prairies. And there's just nothing like "Home Sweet Home". Hitting the Big 50 has its own unique, well...let's say...blessings :) So come along, laugh with me...cry with me...praise God with me...and let's do this 49andcounting thing, together!
