Changesgood adjustments, difficult adjustments, laborious changesthe fascinating mosaic of life. Its completely different for all of us, but all of us share in that altering panorama of life. Generally discovering pleasure within the adjustments is easysometimes very difficult.
As I contemplated the adjustments in my life, and in our world, I thought of Christmas and the beginning of Child Jesus. Generally that manger scene appears so irrelevant and to this point faraway from day after day life. But an previous verse within the Bible introduced freshness to my soul this week as I contemplated how the Child Jesus impacts my life at this time. It really provides new trigger for pleasure.
For unto us a baby is born …and He will likely be known as Fantastic Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 & 7
