Singing in the rain…I’m singing in the snow!
Oops, I guess that should be “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow.”
Today, I am returning from a week-long trip in Canada. And although it’s been cold all week, today when I arrived at the airport, it finally began to snow. And although it’s not expected to stick, it signifies that the end of the year is upon us.
As we age, we find that what older people tell us in life generally comes true.
One of those sayings is “Life sure does go by quickly!”
I think by age 30, the years start going quickly. And by the time you’re 40, the years are quickly passing by.
Throughout this week, I enjoyed the beautiful nature views during my scenic drive across Canada. I enjoyed the wonderful music that God provided through talented musicians on the radio. And I enjoyed the blessings of technology as I got to see my family via smartphone every night even though I was over 1000 miles away.
There are so many things that God provides in life, that it’s just so hard to enjoy half of them. In fact, I don’t think we enjoy even 10% of God’s glorious gifts to us.
However, I’m thankful that this time of the year is upon us, because it serves to remind us of the most precious gift He ever gave, and that’s Jesus.
You may not be in the Christmas spirit yet, but it will be here before you know it. And I’m anxiously awaiting another celebration of Jesus’ birth. Merry Christmas!
