Expectancy – Stop take a break. No snow here but a watching and waiting. H U S H. Breathe and let there be a moment in this day to listen.
Yesterday I gave a small gift (in a little box – Christmas earrings) to a young woman in a McDonald’s store. The stunned look on her face and the look of wonder ‘No stranger has ever given me a gift before’.
A friend of mine from another State phoned me also yesterday. ‘I was sitting in a coffee shop when a woman tapped me on the shoulder and presented me with the most exquisite posy of flowers. She disappeared and I never saw her again’. Her phone call and the story blessed my day.
These incidents remind me forcibly about what this Season is all about. Let us GIVE without expectations but in our turn be prepared to receive this Christmas as we remember Christ’s Birth the greatest free Gift we have ever or will ever receive.
Open it up.
Find the fullness of the Christ-Life inside.
Have a truly Blessed Day and be a Blessing to someone else if you have to journey out. If you are at home……Phone someone…not e-mail.. PHONE. This unexpected phone call could be the best gift in a lonely or struggling person’s day.
BLAZE! BLAZE! BLAZE! LOVE as you go.
