Laud Him, all you peoples!
For His merciful kindness is great toward us,
Praise the Lord!"
~ Psalm 117
As I was laying in bed Christmas evening re living the day in my
mind, I started to thank the Lord for His real gifts, the gift of joy
and peace in my heart.
The world offers humanity a false joy and peace, promising
happiness if we climb the ladder of success, make more money and
fill our homes with stuff.
Laying there I was overwhelmed with God's love again and how
any of the gifts that I received under the tree do not bring any
satisfaction as the peace and joy that Jesus fills my heart with.
Of course I am grateful for the gifts that my loved ones have
brought me, you always feel very special when someone has taken
the time to think of you and buy gifts.
I will never forget where I came from, the hopeless, desperate
and lost place and then just like that evening when the angel
appeared to the humble shepherds declaring great news that a
saviour is being born in the city of David is how Jesus came to me
Jesus saves, heals and restores.
"Gloria in excelsis Deo"
