In the hustle of the holidays, during your shopping, your decorating, your baking and your party planning, consider the gift God has chosen specifically for you this Christmas season (and every day of your life).  It's hard to imagine that such a tiny package holds the answer to all my issues.  It's hard to fathom that such a tiny person has the power to save me from myself- by himself.  From ashes to beauty.

"Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift." 2 Cor 9:15
