Christmas – Thank you Jesus – I got a surprise !!!

Every year, Christmas is always a day of joy and thanksgiving. This year my joy was full and overflowing. Where do I start listing the blessings of God in my life? A healthy and loving wife, a healthy and happy son, my own health and for the members of my extended family, God’s mercies, love, joy, peace….

I feel so blessed and all I can say is thank you Jesus. We had a family lunch on Christmas day. It was so much fun having people from different parts of the world share love like people born to the same parents. There was plenty of food and laughter and music and gifts. Wow.. even though the person with my gift did not show up, it was so much fun seeing all those gifts and also the joy of giving. I believe I will get my gift later.

However, on getting home we checked our mail box and sitting right there was the best Christmas gift I have received from someone in a long time. It’s not the size of the gift that makes it special, but the timing and the significance of it. What was it? Yes you guessed right – A cheque of $300 from a dear sister in USA. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect. Come to think of it, It is one of the biggest Christmas gifts anyone has ever given to me. With this gift the Lord has confirmed HIS WORD. That is why the gift was so special. Thanks my dear sister.

Well its 3.00am – got to go to bed.
