Christmas is over way to fast. My son was here and is gone already. It seems each year it goes faster. I wish it would last a bit longer. I’m thinking of leaving our tree up longer this year.
The good news is that the peace that comes from the Lord stay’s with us through out the year. His love can permeate our lives if we let Him.
This is real love-not that we loved God, but that he loves us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. 1 John 4:10
Some of you may be sad this time of year because you don’t get to spend time with those you love. If its death or the death of a relationship or just physical distance. Either way it can leave you feeling empty and alone.
Love is about sacrificing and wanting what is best for others, not about what we can get. In that light if others can’t or don’t want to be with us on Christmas we can bow our heads and cry the tears of sacrificial love.
My Pearl today is that we have a great example of sacrificial love, Jesus who gave his life. No pain was to great for him to save us. He sweat drops of blood for us.
