Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to wake up today in this marvelous universe and spend this time with my family rejoicing. You’ve blessed me with an abundance of love, and you found me when I was all but lost to you, my family, friends, and the world. All I have and that I am is due to your gracious gifts.
This morning we’re playing the game of Santa Claus with our children, because it’s fun, because it makes great memories. But within this we still try to make sure they understand that this is really a day to celebrate the birth and the gift that was your son, Jesus, the savior of us all. Thank you for him, thank you for today, Lord, and thank you for your love and grace. I feel and know that I am blessed and I ask now only for the strength and courage to share your blessings with others in your name. I pray that your will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. I pray for the knowledge of your will and the power to carry it out. Amen.
Merry Christmas, my friends.
