HELLO FRIENDS: 12.12.13 – Isaiah 9:6,7

Hello Friends,

The story is told of the husband and wife that haven’t spoken to each other since last Christmas.  You see, last year the husband asked the wife what she wanted for Christmas and she replied “Oh, just SURPRISE me!”

So… on Christmas morning at around 3 am the husband leaned over to her while sleeping in bed and screamed “Hey Honey…SURPRISE!”

Thus the reason they haven’t spoken for quite a while.

🙂

Of course, the story is just for fun. But, unfortunately, the Christmas season can be anything but fun for some.

🙁

The holidays may be full of frustration, pain, and hurt. Perhaps they recall tough times, strained relationships, and unmet expectations. White Christmas can become a “Blue” Christmas, complete with depression, divorce, and debt.

If so, please hear the Word of the Lord:

For a child has been born—for us!
the gift of a son—for us!
He’ll take over
the running of the world.
His names will be: Amazing Counselor,
Strong God,
Eternal Father,
Prince of Wholeness.
His ruling authority will grow,
and there’ll be no limits to the wholeness he brings.
Isaiah 9:6,7

Let that settle in for a bit.

Now, go back and read it again.

Ok? Done?

Blessings,

John
