Joy to the world, our Savior, Jesus, is born. Merry Christmas.

Who are we that the God of all creations knows our names?
Who are we that the God of all gods loves us so much?
Who are we to deserve this type of never-ending unconditional love?
We are not extraordinary, but our God makes and sees each of us as unique.
We do not deserve His love, but He gives it freely anyway.
We do not deserve His Son, Jesus, to save us.
We are sinners and are unworthy of His tremendous gift, but our God loves us anyway. So much so that He gave us the ultimate precious gift this season.
Though unworthy, He gave His son for each of us to no longer be slaves to our sins. Thank You, God, for your amazing grace!
Today, we celebrate the birth of the Savior of the world.
Jesus is God’s word to come to life.
Even though we have been marred with heaviness, sadness, separation, and feared this year, we cannot forget the real reason for this season.
Today, we should be full of joy and delight with the knowledge that we have been spared the fate of damnation through our Savior.
Jesus, our Savior, is born for each of us to have everlasting life.
Merry Christmas to each of you, and may the joy of this season carry you through into next year.

Learn to savor each moment of your life.

Life passes so quickly. We watch as day by day goes by faster and faster.
We must learn to enjoy life. Each of us is only bestowed one gift of life and tomorrow is promised to no one.
We were meant to enjoy life. We were not intended to be bogged down with sadness, depression, illness, loneliness, emptiness, etc.
These types of burdens are too heavy for us to carry. God never created us to bear these burdens. That is why His word tells us to cast every burden onto Him(Psa55:22).
How do you go about getting every ounce of enjoyment out of every single day?
Approach and enjoy life like a child again. Soak in every moment of life, don’t rush through life’s experiences, and learn how to savor each moment of each experience.
Learn how to take in every sight and smell.
Take plenty of photos. Photos will allow you to go back through your pictures and relive every special moment in each experience.
As a child, do you remember lying in the grass and staring into the sky as you watched each cloud drifting in the sky?
Do you remember laying there trying to see what kinds of shapes the clouds were?
You didn’t rush through all those clouds. You didn’t lay there for 5 or 10 minutes. As a child, you would lay in the grass for hours.
Do you remember as a child watching ants march up and down their anthill?
You didn’t watch and examine them for 5 or 10 minutes. You laid there and watched them for an hour or two.
Loving and living in every moment is how we can find enjoyment in our lives again. Take the time to experience new things, soak them in, don’t rush through those experiences.
Life is too precious to be rushed through it. Savoring each moment helps extend your hours, days, weeks, and months.
That extension of time is beyond priceless.
