Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from my North Carolina Home to Yours. Today, I am watching my favorite Jane Austen movies and writing a new chapter of one of my three works in progress. It will be a quiet day (except for the hours when my grandson James and his new sister Annalise are here for they fill this house with the joy of childhood), and for both the solitary hours and those spent with my family I am thankful. I am also thankful because our house has been blessed with baby #3. She was to be born in January, but the doctors worried for her health, and so we have our lovely Emery to increase our already full hearts. More joys and more toys!
I encourage each of you to give God what he most wants for Christmas. Not your life: He has no use for it. God bestowed “life” upon you. Instead, consider giving him what he most desires: your sin.
