This is December and it's a time of gift-giving. Some people are rich and are able to give big expensive gifts. Some of us are not so rich and the gifts we give are small -something inexpensive ~ maybe a homemade gift or just a card with "I love you" written on it. BUT, it's a gift ~ those gifts come from the heart. IICorinthians 9:15 says: "Thanks be to God for His Unspeakable Gift." Our Lord gave us the most precious Gift that we could ever receive. It cost the Lord everything to give us this Gift. Just imagine with me for a moment. The Lord and His Son, Jesus, strolling down one of the beautiful streets of gold in Heaven. Perhaps, Jesus said, "Listen, Father, to the music of the angels' choir, isn't it beautiful?" The Lord might have said, "Yes, Son, it is beautiful." They stroll on down a path of the most beautiful and fragrant flowers. The Lord says, "Come over here, Son." Jesus says, "Yes? Father." "It's time, Son. It's time for You to go to Earth to be born in a lowly manger." Jesus doesn't question, whine, or say: " No, I don't want to." He knows it is the will of the Father and He obediently nods His head, yes. He knows it is time to go-to leave Heaven and all its beauty and His Heavenly Father. But He knows that God is giving the world the most wonderful present ever given. Jesus will be born to a lovely young virgin, but in a few years He will die, giving the world the Unspeakable Gift. Jesus is the Unspeakable Gift. Oh, the angels REJOICE. For all the beauty of Heaven, the flowers, the sweet music, the streets of gold cannot compare to the beauty of Jesus. The angels know that Jesus is the SHINING LIGHT and the TRUE BEAUTY of Heaven. They know that He is leaving them for a while, but they rejoice knowing that He is going to be the SAVIOUR of the entire world. Yes, He was born in Bethlehem as a Baby in a manger. But, when He was about 33 years old, He agonizingly suffered, bled and died on the Cross to give us this Unspeakable Gift--the GiftofSalvation. That is the real Gift of Christmas. Mr. Vine, in his expository dictionary, suggested that unspeakable means "WORDS TOO SACRED TO BE UTTERED." Uttered means to: speak aloud; hard of interpertation; too hard for us to understand. It is hard for us to understand that God would give us such a GIFT. BUT, He did--for ALL to receive. Have you received this free, wonderful UNSPEAKABLE GIFT of grace through faith? It is yours for the asking. Merry Christmas. Until We Meet Again...
I'm in my mid-fifties(starting on the other side of mid, as of now.) I am a Mother and an adoring Gan-Gan. My daughter and granddaughter are the apples of my eye. My interests are far and wide. I love teaching Sunday School to little kids at my church--it is so rewarding. Family is everything, both kin and church family. What fellowship is to be had with both!! I am a girlie-girl who loves everything "PINK". My daughter tells me that I live in the "Original Barbie House" because of ALL the pink. And oh, did I mention my love of ROSES? Everything has got to have a rose motif on it. I love people and am concerned for their souls. My mission is to tell others about the Saving Grace of My Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the shedding of HIS precious blood for all those that will believe. God loves HUMAN BEINGS!!! My own "Life Verse" is Romans 8:28- "For all things work together for the good of them that love God, to them who are the called according to HIS purpose." I want to be used according to His Precious, Perfect will for my life. My desire is to share my life's journey with YOU. What a pleasure it's going to be.

Life is Full of Wonder
Life is a wonderful journey, filled with all sorts of ups and downs and in betweens. There's always that very interesting person to meet right around the corner, or maybe it's a "just can't remember where I put the thing" kind of day. My blog is just that, life's little stories, no matter how quaint or unconsequential they be, you'll hear about it here. We can laugh, cry, or just muse about the day's events together. Yes, life is full of wonderful little happenings. I, for one, am interested in them and in YOU, my dear reader. Hence, this blog is born. Let us start our journey together, shall we?
