God is always working in our lives…every place that we are, every situation we are faced with, every blessing that comes our way. This past few weeks I have been researching and planning for how I can be more involved with scripture, more involved with a church community, and grow in my faith. I have come to know that there is a reason for everything more and more as I have embarked on that journey. I am blessed that in my CrossFit gym, the place where I spend so much of time, there are people that have introduced me to an amazing church community no farther than .3 (yes that is point 3) miles from my house. I am blessed that these people have opened their arms to my husband and I, and made us feel so welcome right at the very time when I was looking for it most. I am just so excited with how this worked out!
That said, Christmas is coming, and I always find myself wrapped up in the material of it all. I love presents, presents and more presents. Not just for me, but for all. Yet, it is important to remember that we have received the greatest present already. “For to us a child is born, 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.” Isaiah 9:6. A son is given…to us. This is something that I want to think about, and encourage you to think about, as we continue in this holiday season. PS- MERRY CHRISTMAS!
