A Reminder that God is Good and that His Light Still Shines

Christmas tree blessingSo, our Christmas tree has been up for just over a year and during that time, we have added decorations as reminders of some of the many amazing things that God has done. Some of these have involved answered prayers but many of them have been about blessings that God has surprised us with.

You can read more about this in The Reason Why Our Christmas Tree is Still Up.

As we have taken these decorations down in the past few days, it has been a wonderful reminder of the goodness of God but also I have been shocked at how many answers to prayer that I had forgotten about.

You see, God is at work all of the time and he constantly is blessing and surprising us. I hope that we can learn to look more and more for what he is doing and that we can thank him for it.

We have now taken our tree down and are thinking about how we will remember during 2017 that Jesus is still the light of the world and that he will continue to bless us in many and sometimes unexpected ways.

Some things are worth remembering and giving thanks for!
