This time it wasn't quite as cold as last week, about 38 degrees and it was foggy all day and night (remember my photo?). As we sat there in the steamy air chatting about writing and books and husbands we had the delight of enjoying the outdoor Christmas lights on her house and seeing her beautiful Christmas tree twinkle from the window.
Laurel told me she had a special Christmas list this year. This is the list she has presented to God asking him for what she would like during the coming year - almost like New Year's resolutions, but with a twist. They are not goals so much as they are her sharing her desires with the Father of Lights who desires to give good gifts to his children. She said that she couldn't wait to see how he answered her list; which is simply her prayer.
What can you give to Jesus for Christmas? Give Him your TRUST.
Delight yourself in the LORD
and he will give you
the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD;
TRUST in him and he will do this:
He will make your righteousness
shine like the dawn,
the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
Be still before the LORD
and wait patiently for him.
What's on your Christmas list to God this year?
