MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE! I hope that you all are having a joyful, Christ filled Christmas. God has been SO good to me. I have my seven children home with me. They are all healthy and happy. We have a warm place to stay and plenty to eat. We have most in our family saved and hopefully the littles will follow. God is just SO, SO good!
I don't know how God did it. I couldn't imagine sending my child down from a perfect place such as heaven, to live on this wicked earth. The thought of something terrible happening to my children just devastates my mind. For my children to be in harm's way sends me in panic. I often think, oh I'll allow the children to minister, as long as they are safe. God is SO MUCH MORE giving and loving. He loved the unlovely so much. How do we act toward the unlovely? Not God though! Our Father was willing to send His ONLY son down here to this earth and to endure SO much for everyone that was ever born. He bore enough for the sins of every single person that has ever existed. Do you know how much sin that was/is/will be? Jesus never-ever sinned but He was still willing to take the pain, agony, burden for all of us. People still carry their sins in vain when they don't even have to. If everyone only realized what Jesus did---for them and that they don't have to carry sinful burdens. If they only knew the joy of loving Him. It's a love that grows and grows. It gets so much sweeter as the days go by! That love is free to everyone. Such love! No greater love! I'm so thankful that He came to earth, endured all the pain and torment so that I could live forever....so that my children could live forever. One day every knee will bow and worship Him. It would just be wonderful if everyone would go ahead and do that now. So, I guess when I think of Christmas I don't think of a baby in a barn. I think of a person who had a sad, lonely, poor life here on earth for every soul that every existed. Wonder how many souls ever existed.... a lot. So I guess at Christmas I am happy but more melancholy and thoughtful of what He went through. I DO rejoice but not because of a cute little baby in a manger but because He was born to die so that I could be born to live forever. Forever is a very long time, of which I am thankful!
