This has become the theme of my Christmas -- giving and receiving the good news, stories, gifts and graces of comfort and joy. I've learned again the intentions of our Father to bless us in order to be a blessing. The never-ending goodness He provides us in this non-linear, messy life of grace. I keep learning the disciplines of grace, the giving and receiving. I'll be gone a few days practicing well the receiving part.
In the meantime, I wanted to stop by for a moment and shout the good and joyful news:
We have been saved! We are saved! We will be saved!There is a Savior!
Happy Christmastide from the Murphy Family!
