Walk Slowly

Christmas is coming...hopefully snow will be falling. The decorations, the smells, the gifts are all because of a loving God who chose to give the greatest gift of all, His own son!

Walk slowly and enjoy each moment! No matter what our circumstances we already have the greatest gift of all.

Walk slowly through your home. The hands that touch all the pretty decorations will not be the same next year.

Walk slowly through the stores. It is not about what we give, but what has been given to us.

Walk slowly through the parties and family traditions. People matter most to God. He died for them.

Walk slowly and look at the beautiful lights, savor the smells, and worship the King who came for us.

Walk Slowly!

Very nice,Chris! This is what we want to focus our attention on this season,too. I love the words of this! It is amazing to think God became flesh to save a sinful world. I just want to meditate on this.

Chris,
Thank you so much for your beautiful comment on my blog. You have no idea (or maybe you do)how much your words of encouragement blessed me! It just occured to me last night that I was sounding a little like the Israelites looking back to Egypt! I could go on and on but don't want to take up so much space. Simply, thank you. You were used by the Lord to bless me!
