Christmas is in the air...and it's only the first of November! Christmas music was on the radio this weekend, the commercials are in full swing, and it's time to start getting those lists together. Though some people say "wait until after Thanksgiving," I think the sooner you start the celebration of Jesus' birth, the better! (Not that we skip over Thanksgiving, we just "give thanks" while listening to Christmas music!) :)
It is in this special season, I am reminded how blessed I really am. I sometimes use that term flippantly, but I am truly, truly blessed! My family has a roof over our heads, food to eat, clothes to wear, health, and I could go on and on...
"O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker."
Let us be thankful, everyday, for His blessings!
