I think about it sometimes, wanting to know what lies ahead and then I check myself. Isn't life much like opening a gift? We really want to pick it up and shake it but we really don't want to know what's inside. Maybe just a hunch or idea? Yeah, maybe.
How wonderful it is when the gift is revealed and it is what we've been hoping for! And there are times when the gift (yes, I still believe it's a gift) is revealed and we think "HUH?" or "THIS?" or "I DON'T GET IT".... but those gifts too touch us don't they. Because you know they were given in love.
HE KNEW ME before I was born, everything about me. My quirks, hiccups and hangups. And He's loved me from since before I as a thought in my mother's head. He has loved me from the time arrived and continues to love me today - AWESOME is what that is. To know everything, every thought, every breath, every hair on my head ~ He knows me!
Today as we think about the gift giving list I hope we'll all make time to pause and thank Jesus for the most amazing gift of all! His son Jesus, who loves us beyond our wildest dreams ~ who offers us the most amazing gift each and every day, the gift of sharing life with a Jesus, who has loved us long before we were born and who will continue journey with us. The gift of having a Father who loves us beyond anything we could imagine. WHAT A GIFT!
