Try countin' your blessings. Try givin' thanks in all circumstances (not for all) and, "Sing to the Lord, all you godly ones! Praise his holy name. For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning."
"When the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son." —Galatians 4:4
Makes me want to worship. Too many people think that eternal life kicks in after one dies. Nope! It'll kick in the moment you simply repent (turn from sin) and believe in Jesus. Sure, Christmas should bring us to the end of ourselves, and then into Christ's embrace - yes, humbly to the beginning of grace.
