A Very Special Christmas!

Well, I do believe this is our best Christmas ever! Yesterday after church, our exchange student daughter "GG" prayed to receive Christ as her Saviour and Lord! I had the privilege of sitting with her as our pastor talked with her and then led her in the prayer. She has been absolutely glowing all day!

Please pray for her family in Germany if you think of it. They had given their "permission", telling her it was her decision, but this is all brand new for them. When she Skyped with her mom in the afternoon, her mom was happy that GG was happy, but she didn't really understand. And pray for GG's growth over the next few months before she returns home, and for our family as we encourage her!

This was one of my favorite songs on George Beverly Shea's Christmas album when I was growing up, and it's perfect for today!
Thou didst leave Thy throne and Thy kingly crown
When Thou camest to earth for me
But in Bethlehem's home was there found no room
For Thy holy nativity.
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus,
There is room in my heart for Thee.

Oh Linda, this is the most perfect gift anyone could receive. I will definately be in prayer for her family, as well as for GG to grow strong in the Lord!

Linda, that is so wonderful!!!! I will be praying for her, that God would cement himself in her heart before she heads home. And that she will be a light that would draw her family to Him!!

Prayers said for GG, and for her strength as a witness when she returns home. I also asked for God to lead her to a good Christian support community.

How awesome that she accepted the greatest gift ever given. Will be praying for all of you as she begins her journey with the Lord.

I do love George Beverly Shea. I went to bed many a night as a child listening to his music. Sweet memories!

Blessings galore this Christmas week!
