when you get everything you asked for… all that’s left is gratitude

At all times and for everything giving
thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father

Ephesians 5:20 (amp)


My Christmas list this year wasn’t long.
Just two things.


It wasn’t complicated.
It didn’t require running from store to store.

It wasn’t expensive…
at least not in the sense of spending a lot of money.


I asked for time with


and time with them…


I’ve spent the past few days pondering
how full my heart is…

not only did I get what I asked for,
I got it in abundance.

and, all that is left
is gratitude
to the Giver of all great things.

So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children,
how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him.
Luke 11:13 (nlt)
