Merry Christmas

Gifts are opened.  Steaks have been eaten.  Now the fam is sleeping on the couch.  I am hoping they wake soon for I'm ready to hike down to the creek.  Houston, Jenny, and the babies have been missed this morning but I will spend a couple of days with them next week. 

Worship this morning was so tenderly sweet at Southside Baptist Church.  Pastor Aaron spoke on my life verse, "You will keep him in perfect peace,  Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You" Is. 26:3.  Our worship was lead from the piano with a congregational prayer time (who does that on a Sunday morning!!!) and family style Lord's Supper.  My heart was humbly bowed before our Savior as my Spirit was dancing before the Lord.  Can I say again it was a sweet time!

Todd and I were reflecting yesterday of where the Lord has brought us these past 30 years.  We are thankful He did not leave us in our sin.  We are thankful He did not allow us to continue traveling down the path laid out before us by several family members-alcoholism, gambling addictions, materialism, pornography, etc. God interrupted our life and changed it forever.  When I think about where we would be today without Christ it scares and humbles me.  I am thankful God called me out of this darkness and into His marvelous light.  This thankfulness turns to worship and this worship turns to prayer.  As my mind is continually worshipping and praying, God's perfect peace invades my soul.  If you want joy and peace in this crazy world, you must KNOW and TRUST God through His Son Jesus.  He can interrupt your world today!  "If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him form the dead, you will be saved." Rom. 10:9

I pray each of you reading this blog will have a very Merry Christmas.  You can be merry without Christ but you will NEVER have peace without Him, for He is the Prince of Peace!  Love you all!! Merry Christmas.
