A Christmas Edition

Updated: May 7

A Special Thank You

I am so grateful to have you here with me. Thank you for inviting me to your personal space. I hope to update you on the book's progress in the next email. I have a special Christmas edition for you today. I hope you enjoy.


A good Christmas Eve to you, my friend, I’ve been pondering the events that have unfolded this year. I’m in awe of God’s provision in my life. This year is especially meaningful, perhaps in part because I chose to partner with God on my writing journey. I seem to be more in step with the blessing he wants to pour out on me. When I think ABUNDANTLY EXCEEDINGLY, I think of the scripture, Ephesians 3:20-21 in the NKJ version. In contrast, the NIV uses the word, IMMEASURABLY. But the one that gets me is the ISV version. Now to the one who can do INFINITELY more than all we can ask or imagine according to the power that is working among us—to him be the glory in the church and in the Messiah Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Is it possible that the blessing flows stronger by being expectant and more in step with the Holy Spirit? When I consider that scripture, I wonder if we are preventing the infiniteness of God from doing immeasurably, abundantly, and exceedingly in our lives by being too caught up in the everyday busyness of living. Each Christmas Eve, when I was very young, we traveled to my grandparents' home, where we enjoyed the festivities with them and my aunts, uncles, and cousins. My folks drove seven hours through the night to get there. It was easier on them that way with three youngins. One of the most memorable parts of those years was my folks waking us as we crested the mountain and first saw the lights of town. It was like looking into a snow globe. The town twinkled below with white, red, green, and blue. And above, the Milky Way, moon, and stars made a magnificent display in the navy-blue sky. The clean, crisp smell of the early morning winter air was refreshing as we piled out of the car upon arrival (I wish I could bottle it up and smell it throughout the year). The expectations of all of us kids quickened as we walked into the house that smelled of pine, warmth, and love. Scripture tells us that we must have child-like faith and not hinder it because it is the faith-filled that the kingdom of heaven belongs to. Today, I pray that you will have the child-like faith to imagine what extraordinary gifts God has prepared for you. I ask him to blanket you with his love and warmth and that you will begin to see the infinite possibilities that he has in store for your new year. May it be infinitely blessed. Merry Christmas, with love.

Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:4
