A Gift to be Thankful For

"And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins. So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 'Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,' which is translated, 'God with us.' ..I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly....Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!" (Matthew 1:21-23; John 10:10b; 2 Corinthians 9:15) As we go from a time of thanks giving and remembering our blessings to a time of celebrating the birth of Christ, love, and being with friends and family, we need to remember to stop and be thankful for the biggest blessing and Christmast gift of all...the birth of Jesus Christ. He came to take away our sins, so that we "might have life and have it more abundantly." CHRISTmas is a time of incredible love, miracles, and faith. So have faith, believe in miaracles..and be thankful! The gift of Jesus, God's only son, is the greatest gift of love of all! Love, Beau
