Spiritual Journey Thursday - Merry Christmas!

     I look forward to Thursdays when I can publish thoughts on my spiritual journey and hear the thoughts of others on a weekly theme topic.  It has become a space for an encouraging and fortifying community to come together.  We welcome anyone who would like to join us!
 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment." - Matthew 22:36-38
This is the day we have awaited since the beginning of Advent.  Let us adore HIM!
At our children's sermon at church last Sunday, a child spoke up and said, "God wants US for Christmas!"  We chuckled in the congregation because he was a little off topic from the children's sermon, but what a wonderful sentiment!  It got me thinking about all the things we ask God for, but He only asks one thing - for us to love Him with all our heart and with all our soul and with all our mind - because He loved us first and gave us His only Son so that we may live.
Let us give Him our whole self today and every day.  I wish each and every one of you a Christmas filled with love for Jesus and for one another!
