Perfectly Imperfect Christmas
I picked out (and hung first) the ornament from the year that she was diagnosed with JRA of a snowman with a little mouse doctor (Wednesday it is 15 years since she’s been diagnosed, God is good! She is in remission, He is the ultimate healer). And a few Charlie Brown ornaments, and the Nine Ladies Dancing Precious Moments ornament (the only PM I put up this year).
Our tree isn’t one of those perfect Better Homes and Gardens trees, but it’s imperfectly perfect , which seems so fitting this year. Our house isn’t completely decked to the hilt, and it won’t be, but it will have the perfect amount of decorations. Jesus is here. And He’s moving in our lives, so what more do we need.
I hope that your Christmas is perfectly imperfect, just like you. And may you find Jesus in your imperfection.
God loves you. And so do I.
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
