January #jammed : Grace in Life’s Face
Day 9: Retain the Christmas Spirit.
There’s a Christmas cactus on my desk that I fail to water most of the time. Miraculously,
it just celebrated it’s first birthday by sprouting beautiful pink flowers. I forgot about it most of the year, yet it retained enough water to survive.
Christmas overflows with the joy that Jesus’ feet trod into this earth. Though we leave the story as the decorations disappear, the babe’s promise is here. We can continue to kindle the magic of the Christmas story by reading God’s Story …Jesus is present from cover to cover.
Father, Praise Your grace! Thank you for Your Living Word, in which we can meet You each day for encouragement and guidance. Forgive us for packing the Christmas season out of our minds, and bless us with Spirit’s power to recall it throughout the year. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
