Wonders of his Love

Joy to the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love
And wonders of His love
And wonders and wonders of His love

One of my fondest Christmas memories is the Christmas Eve Service at my parent's church. We have attended for as long as I can remember. We have grown from the mere five of us to a group of 12 in a few short years. Although some of us were missing this year, most were there to celebrate the coming of Christ. Our hearts were all joined together in thanksgiving and praise.

While singing the lyrics to "Joy to the World," I was overcome with tears. Amid the candles, the songs, and the families rejoicing together, there we stood; this new family of three. I glanced over in time to see my husband kissing Bailey on the head. Words cannot describe how overwhelming a feeling. We were all gathered together to celebrate the birth of this small child, born to the simplest of people, in the simplest of settings, who died a disgraceful and humiliating death...... This small child allowed my life to be filled with undeserving wonder.

Lord, how can I thank you?
