As I awakened this morning, it was cold outside and the bed felt so warm and toasty that I considered staying under the cover for another hour. This would still give me time to dress for Church. Then, I began thinking of how getting up for Christmas morning had been so thrilling as a child. Certainly, I didn’t consider the temperature and I would be wide awake at this time or before.
Christmas doesn’t need to be only a yearly happening. Shouldn’t we be expectant of good everyday! II Corinthians 9:15 popped into my head, “Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift” which is constant. I immediately jumped out of bed wide awake, expecting good!
