Every day when I rise, forever because of the risen Son. Endless warmth is always the feeling, within a love that will forever shine. The love illuminates the heart, a light that penetrates into the crevices of the soul. Leaving the heart breathless, the soul captivated by the beauty. Every ray of light, every breath of hope; the Son shining bright. A love that leaves such an impression, leaving the soul with an everlasting afterglow. The strength of the love, the very essence within every strand of love. Bigger than the Universe, than every cluster of stars in the heavens combined. As far as the East is from the West, more numerous than sands of time. Beyond understanding, the height, length, and breadth… unfathomable; but the love absolutely knowable!
Everyday, my heart will sit within the warmth, let my soul bask up the light. Watch chains fall, and be enlightened; how to lay every burden down. To feel forever at peace, to truly be at home… even though darkness looms. Every dawn is a new day, every new day is another dawn; the love shines… within my soul. My heart loves the glorious presence of the Son. Not even death, can separate my heart; from the light, the truth, the presence… of the risen Son. The radiant light, the light in the darkness. Stunning is the beauty that glows, the love that making hearts beam… with endlessly delight. Elated forever becomes the soul. Fear may cast a shadow, but doubt has no hold. Even though darkness tries to eclipse the love within, the light will forever shine bright. Whenever you need some hope, whenever your faith needs a little bit more luster; look to the risen Son. Contentment is not in rainbows and unicorns, but in the Prince of Heaven. Forever in the risen Son, the light of the world!
“In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:4-5 NIV
Within the crushing, in the pressing… through. How the true meaning of love, gets pressed out of a heart; to be seen as new wine. With a new season, the old becomes new. Hope found, faith renewed. How a heart knows, change has taken place. A heart can act prim, can try to do what’s proper. But still meaningless, if a heart, hasn’t yet learned. It’s not about being respectable, not just a putting on; but what is forever changed? An act will be seen as just random, if the action that precedes is not seen; as a heart acting first… from a place of kindness. A soul learning to become a vessel, in a heart wanting to be forever changed. It’s not about what is seen, but What is Revealed!
We came into the world with nothing, but we’ve been given such an amazing opportunity. To receive a change in status, to forever become sons and daughters. Just we can leave this world, with everything; the blood of Jesus came to provide. In God and Son, we became Royalty. Through a change that’s taking place… within. A kingdom once concealed, now forever revealed. A royal transformation, from this Amazing Grace. Through a change of heart, that begets a different way of thinking. Royalty, teaches you how to speak up, not under your breath. For underneath your every breath, resides the King of Glory. The love of Jesus, what brings out the newness of heart. Access to the throne room, access to our Heavenly Father. That what was once veiled, now seen as the attainable!
A soul being transfigured, a heart being forever transformed. A soul being able to imitate, the love of the invisible God. A heart being able to reflect, the nature of God. Not just by the word, but the faith that preceded. Wave your hands, take a knee; receive your crown. The Lamb of God, You will be forever lifted high. His love knows no end, His love came to set hearts free; a change within. Seated at the right hand of God, King Jesus! He is the God of grace, the God of mercy, the God of love, the God of peace, the God of hope, the God of faith, the God of strength, the God of wonder, the God of life, the God of blessing, the God of honor, the God of power, the God of glory, the God of heaven; God forever, King of my heart!

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 NIV
• A special thanks to my wife, other than the figurines; she designed, built, and handcrafted every part of this stable with such wonderful details. That I was fortunate to take a picture of, and use for today’s post!
The gift my heart has so freely been given, is the gift I want to share with you. It won’t be wrapped up within a nice pretty bow, it’s not about sharing pretty words; but a pretty awesome gift, the love wrapped up within the first Christmas. I could keep this gift to myself, I don’t want this to be about; how a Grinch stole Christmas. Sharing, is caring; a gift I’m regifting to you. Don’t think of this regift as a grand gesture, measure it as a heart tester. The first gift was free, the grandest gesture of love; a heart can ever behold. A gift more meaningful, than a bouquet of flowers; cherished, more than even silver and gold. A truly precious gift, given to us; swaddled as a newborn babe!
The true gift, of Christmas, shimmers with such brilliance. From a heart filled with true artistry; an amazing gift, for all to receive by design. Wise men from the east, followed the star that shimmered in the night. Gifts they brought, to reflect the overwhelming light; shimmering within their hearts. So much love, does the gift of Christmas bestows. So won’t you grant me the true privilege, to regift a love; meant to be forever regifted by design. While bustling along all the busy sidewalks, as you admire all the bright pretty street lights. May your hearts truly be filled, with all the joyous feelings of Christmas. May you feel love is in the air, from hearts regifted in love. Wrapped up forever, within the true meaning of Christmas!
