Christmas Prayer Before Opening Presents

Vintage Ribbon Images

"Let me just for a moment, Lord, hold this time in my heart. It is about mysteries and gratitude, unknowing and wrong sizes, snippets of ribbon and screams of delight. Help me to remember the immense love you have for each of us in this room. With each gift that is opened, no matter how perfect or not, let me feel again the many ways you gift us each day, especially with your presence in our hearts and the presence of each other in our lives." ~ Author Unknown

Baby Jesus

He came, not as a flash of light or as an unapproachable conqueror, but as one whose first cries were heard by a peasant girl and a sleepy carpenter. God tapped humanity on its collective shoulder, "Pardon me," he said, and eternity interrupted time, divinity interrupted carnality, and heaven interrupted the earth in the form of a baby. Christianity was born in one big heavenly interruption.

Quote from Francis Chan

“The irony is that while God doesn’t need us but still wants us, we desperately need God but don’t really want Him most of the time.”   ~Francis Chan

5 Books On My Nightstand

Here are five books that have been recommended or given to me to read. I've already started The Church Planting Wife and Eleven Indispensable Relationships You Can't Be Without. I really love them! How I wish I had more time to read!

Have you read or heard of any of these? What are your thoughts?
