Do you ever feel that words just don't convey your deepest emotions, thoughts, and experiences?
I often feel this.
When our daughter got married earlier this month — and specifically when she and her new husband spoke their vows to each other — my tears poured.
Afterward, I had no words to explain what had overcome me.
Joy. Solemnity. Beauty. Maturity. Love. Giving. Commitment.
Yes, all of those.
But really, the depth of what they exchanged was inexpressible.
Even more — Jesus.
He is our gift. God gave him to us to save us from our Sins. From eternal death.
God's word says of the gift of Jesus, “Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift.” –2 Corinthians 9:15
Do you have words sufficient to express how great a gift Jesus is?
Jesus, our Savior — the greatest gift one could ever receive.
He chokes me up.
In the hymn, How Great Thou Art, these words:
“And when I think of God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;”
Can you take it in?
I have never been able to sing that verse. Never been able to get through it without faltering.
“I scarce can take it in.”
Today, in the place of fancy words, for they would not do the gift of Jesus justice, may I simply wish you and your family a Christmas where your hearts receive and are fixed on the greatest — unspeakable — gift of Jesus.
Merry Christmas from my family to yours! We love and cherish you.
P.S. If you've been with us in years' past, you know that our family numbers 5. Yet now we are 6 because we gained a son-in-love just last week!
just 15 minutes of hands-on time!
