2 Corinthians 6:18

And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.

The very first words on today’s page are…

My Princes…
You are my precious daughter

Catches you right there huh? Just wait…it gets even more tear jerking…or at least for me.

God says to me, “I’m delighted with you!” This page reminds me that even more than my daddy loves me on this earth (or how little your daddy may love you if you are in that place), God loves me so much more. Psalm 139 tells me that God formed me in the womb, He saw me before I was born and counted every hair on my head. This page goes on to say that He bought me with a price so that I could have an intimate relationship with Him.

I have to say that this page had me tearing up. I know, based on Scripture, that God loves me; I accepted His salvation gift many years ago because I believe this to be true, but I forget just how much He loves me and how much He desires an intimate relationship with me.

I pray that God will remind me daily in big and small ways just how much He loves me and that God will do the same for you.

John 15:16

(a) You did not choose me. I chose you.

Among the things my mom gave me for Christmas, she gave me a book called His Princess, Love Letters from Your King by Sheri Rose Shepherd. I finally got around to opening the book tonight and before I could even read the forward, this was the Scripture on the page.

You see, for as long as I could remember, I have struggled with self-esteem, self-respect, etc. I have struggled with really knowing that I am God’s princess. I know it in my head and somewhere deep in my heart, but I don’t think I’ve ever fully realized it. So, knowing this, my mother bought me a gift that she knew would stretch me and strengthen me and help me realize my worth in God’s eyes.

Be prepared, faithful readers, because as I go through this book I will be sharing some insights with you. And if you find that you, like me, have a hard time knowing your worth in God’s eyes, I hope that you will see exactly how God feels about you too!

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through mom’s house

Christmas movies were playing as we all lounged around

The stockings were hung by the TV with care

In hopes that mom would fill them with her usual flare

The family was nestled all snug on the couch

Eating ice cream and cookies like a common slouch

With mom in her sweats and I in my pajamas

We had just settled in for a night of laughs and dramas

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter

My dad and brother sprang forth to see what was the matter

Away to the four wheelers they flew in a flash

So quickly that we worried they would crash

With clouds rolling in and no stars up above

They couldn’t see anything to grab a hold of

When what to their wondering eyes should appear

But a raccoon setting the alarm off, or maybe a deer

When nothing appeared to have caused the alarm

They returned to the house for a little Arnold at the funny farm

So as I sit with my family on this Christmas Eve

I am blessed beyond measure for the gifts I’ve received

As I settle in for rest of the night

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
