Eagerly, I opened the package, grateful not only for the delicious chocolates revealed therein, but more for my cousin. This year, there was a note included. It was so beautiful and touching, I decided to share it with you.
Christmas means we are not an accident
Christmas means purpose
Christmas means Creator God took the initiative to reconcile willful man
Christmas means God works the miraculous through the unexpected
for the undeserving.
Christmas means His suffering was more
than we could endure or repay.
Christmas means the purpose of life is preparation
for eternity with God.
Christmas means the Light of the world
that centuries of evil still cannot extinguish.
Christmas means Jesus in the Christ
and the life.
Christmas means ministry to others in His name,
all year long.
May our inadequate expressions of love and gratitude
remind us of the overwhelming magnificence
of all that Christmas means.
