Okay, found the tiny miracle I needed to spark the Christmas spirit. The soundtrack to The Christmas Shoes. Wow. I’m so there and in the right sense. Bills are ugly, health is fuzzy, family and friends have serious problems and none of that can block the joy of God’s love if we’ll look toward it in this season.
Numbers is pretty tough to teach if I’m honest, but I found this blessing in chapter 6 which I must have heard a hundred times, but never knew from whence it came…
24 The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:
25 The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
26 The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
