This past week we reflected on some wonderful gifts; friendship, care, time and service and forgiveness. What are some gifts that have stood out to you as you have thought about these this week? Take some time to share those memories with your family and friends at your Christmas celebrations this year as we think about the greatest gift of all—Jesus. We look forward to seeing you this weekend as we remember a special time and remember God’s timing is perfect.

Dear Heavenly Father,
You have given us the greatest gift of all—one we never deserved, nor one we could earn for ourselves. You gave us your Son, who is the bread of life, the light of the world and the Prince of Peace and He alone is our Savior and Lord. What an indescribable gift! Lord, help us to recognize Christ as the greatest gift of all and help us to live out the generosity that you have given us in all we do and say. Be with us as we celebrate Christmas—give us opportunities to share Your love, grace and mercy with others. In Jesus name we pray. Amen
