Joy! A Surprise Gift!
December 16, 2018
After a long day of working, I walked through the house thinking of how I wish I had the gift for and love of decorating (or just keeping house for that matter!), and how it would be nice to have some decorations out for Christmas when the girls come home. I looked longingly at the front door, where the wreaths would go IF I just went into the attic to get them. And a flash of red caught my eye. I wondered if it were a package (I did order some presents!). And there, on our front porch . . . . . was Joy!
a surprise . . . a gift . . . . anonymous . . . a reflection of the generosity of the giver . . . . the very meaning of Christmas!
Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
and sustain in me a willing spirit.
