Gifts We Bring

Every Christmas I promise the same thing... "I will not wait until December to start planning and purchasing my Christmas gifts."

And you have probably said the same thing.

Well, although it really is my intention at the time to do better next year, it rarely happens... because life happens.

I love giving my hubs and kids what they ask for.  And if I will intentionally set time aside a few months prior to Christmas to work on my family's list, then my annual promise might one day come to fruition. 

But what I am doing this week, and I pray you will as well, is beginning to ask Jesus what gifts He would like me to bring Him next year.  

His life was His gift to me.  My life is all I have to give back to Him.  More importantly, the gift is what I will do with the next 365 days of my life.  

So as 2010 comes to a close I'm already making my 2011 CHRISTmas list- and checking it twice- as I sing,

My finest gifts to bring...

To lay before my king.

What do you plan to bring Jesus next year? 

Although He may not post His wish list on the fridge as our kids do, He will certainly post it on your heart if you'll just ask.

I plan to give Him 12 special gifts next year.  I will be sharing with you later this week the first gift on my list.

Until then, wrap up... cause baby it's cold outside!!
