To me, everything seems just a little different this year. So often I would get caught up in work, family, Christmas gifts or any number of other things that are not of real importance. This is nothing more than focusing on my human needs rather than my Spiritual…which is always a struggle for me. But thanks be to God, at this point in my life, nothing is more important to me than praising God and giving Him the glory that is due to Him and Him alone.
When I am able to turn things over to God, my life not only seems to be more fulfilling, but it is also most pleasing to God Himself. I pray that you will find the joy and happiness that only God can provide us in a special way.
