Forgiveness. It is one of the greatest gifts God has given to me. When I am stressed, I need an overdose of it. As I push on to accomplish the tasks on my list, sometimes things get run over or fall off.
Over the last couple of days I have tried to juggle planning family Christmas, a funeral and finishing a movie. Some things have fallen through the cracks, but I know it will all work out.
God teaches us even through our grief what a marvelous God He is. As we reflect over the past few days we are allowed to remember His goodness, His faithfulness and His sovereignty.
On these last couple of days before Christmas I am reminded of a Savior who loved us so much He came down here to be with us, and take us home when we are ready. I don’t think we can comprehend the depth of this love. I know I can’t.
But in my grief, I like to think that this feeling I am experiencing is what my Savior feels for me. That His heart aches for a time for us to be together again. An amazing love came down from heaven and I don’t think we will ever grasp it.
