Grateful New Year

Grateful New Year

On a particularly rough day in December, I was suprised to find an unmarked gift on my front porch.  Inside was a figurine marked with the word “gratitude.”  (I later discovered who left the gift, and am grateful for that person!!)  She was the same pattern as my nativity set, so I placed her behind the candles as an observer, and as a reminder of myself–an onlooker to God’s coming, a woman grateful that Jesus has come to make right all that is contrary to the ways of God.  I begin this new year with gratitude for God’s blessings, gratitude for what He has done and what He will do, but most of all gratitude for His love for me.
