Every Good and Perfect Gift is From Above

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father...." - James 1: 17 (NKJV)

 *Love this sign I had made for my Kitchen!*

So much of this time of year is spent shopping for gifts. It's actually one of my favorite things to do. Whether is shopping for a friend, co worker, family member or for an Operation Christmas Child, I just love shopping for that special something I know the recipient is going to love to receive. 

So much of this time of year is also spent "shopping" for something that will make us happy or feel better. The truth is, the only thing that will give us the greatest satisfaction and happiness is Jesus. The Christmas season isn't about baking, or shopping or Christmas parties; it's about celebrating the birth of JESUS CHRIST. 

It's about knowing that God has already given us the most PERFECT gift, His son! 

John 3:16

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

I hope sometime in the next few days and especially on Christmas, that we all will take the time to remember the true meaning of Christmas, and why we even have Christmas in the first place, to celebrate the coming of a Savior, a King, the good and perfect gift from our Father in Heaven. 

Merry Christmas, everyone!!!
