A Few of My Favorite Things

In honor of the holidays, and just to have a little fun, I’ve listed a few of my favorite things. Brown paper packages tied up with string just might be among them.

In considering Thanksgiving, I am thankful for each of these things. In considering the coming Christmas season, I am grateful for the many gifts God created and lavished upon His people, most especially the greatest gift of all-His son, Jesus! He, my friend, is not held in a brown paper package tied up with string. He desires to live in our own hearts and has come to make His home with us and IN us!

Now THIS is something for which to be grateful!
