A few years ago I was SUPER excited about what I had purchased for my kids for Christmas. Has this ever happened to you? You know you got them something they WILL LOVE, and your excitement at giving it to them is so big you can hardly contain yourself.
I act like a lunatic whenever this happens, and I almost always give the surprise away. I am totally pathetic, giggling, like I want to get the camera out and record their faces as they open whatever package it is. I'm sure I'm not the only one who does this right? ..........Right?
Okay, maybe so. But pretend for a moment that you are like this too. For my sake.
Anyway, I realized this year that this is how God is for us ALL THE TIME. HE gives the BEST gifts. Sometimes we have to wait for them, but he KNOWS us best, and knows what we will love the most. Oh Yes. TOTALLY.
So Open up your present from God. It's his SON, and because of this GIFT, someday we can party up in heaven for ETERNITY. And believe me, we will LOVE that.
