Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your Son to earth as a baby so many years ago. Thank you that He paid the punishment for my sins by dying on the cross. And thank you that He rose again to prove that death was truly defeated. I place my trust in You to be my Savior. Guide me through the dark times of my life and give me courage to live for you.
Please forgive me for being so grumpy as I trudge through the never-ending tasks set before me this holiday season...
My to-do list seems to keep growing with shopping, church services, and family gatherings---
and I'm running short of time!
Restore the joy of Christmas to my heart . . .
and help me to relax each day and make time for
my one true Source of Joy
