But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. Luke 2:19
It is still Christmas joy for you! As we come to the end of the calendar year we find ourselves still “pondering in our hearts” the GIFT of our Savior! The world is pretty much done with Christmas and we are into the “exchange ” business and heading back to work. It is our joy and privilege to live with our Christmas GIFT everyday! Jesus promises to be with us always – not just for a season. As you make your plans for the new year plan with Christ in your heart.
Every new year holds some hopes and fears for everyone, but for the Christian the gift of God’s grace shines in the darkest streets and in the midst of earthly uncertainties. This is the one thing that is forever, for sure and for you! This allows us to say, Happy New Year with the confidence that we still have our Christmas GIFT which fits perfectly in our hearts!
