“Every day is a blessing, every day’s a gift,every day is Christmas when you’re the one I wake up with”. Those are words penned by one of my favorite singer-songwriters John Eddie.
On my journey I learned these words have deeper meaning when “The One” you wake up with is Jesus Christ Himself. He truly makes every day a blessing, every day a gift….
He is the Gift that keeps on giving. Not that people are not gifts, I believe they are, and they certainly can be heart-warming blessings but CHRISTmas can be everyday with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Every DAY is a gift. Every moment is a gift.
Allow God to show you your daily blessings. This year I am going to keep what I call an “Awesome-Jar”. God graces us with awesome things and people, so why not collect those experiences on a post-it note and watch them pile up in a see-through jar?
I am game for this idea. Next year, I can reflect on 365 gifts I received throughout this auspicious year. I trust these gifts are intangible and a larger garage will not be necessary.
My hope is every day this gift I am endowed with will imprint my heart and fill it with more love than a Mom seeing her child for the first time.
Oh yeah! Everyday is Christmas, everyday is a gift when you are the one I wake up with. Thank you Jesus.
Beautiful story Tim!!!
Wishing you the best for the 2014.
Many Blessings my friend!
Thanks Norma. It’s going to be a great year. Write down one blessing a day!
This story will be my first blessing of the year other than waking up with Jesus as my savior.
Awesome comment anonymous. I am glad it blessed you. My first post-it note for the year is being blessed with readers. It brings me great joy knowing people read and are touched by something I shared. All glory to Jesus, I am glad you know Him too. He is AWESOME!!!
Love this story Tim…we have family awesome jars on our refrigerator. But I think I will start an awesome jar for Jesus. Great idea! Thank you for sharing
