Merry Christmas Eve!!

It's  a fairly warm and foggy morning here in Kentucky, so the feeling of Christmas definitely has to come from the heart not the weather.

Olivia keeps saying, "It doesn't feel like Christmas."

I wonder why Christmas has such a huge association with snow when so much of the world is never snowy during the holidays?

I guess it's all the classic movies and songs we see and watch during this season.

Whatever the reason, I think I'm liking the foggy morning this year.

As I looked out the window, I couldn't even see the town that sits not far in front of our house.

It wasn't until the sun began to peek over the hills that the fog began to be burned away.

I couldn't help but think of how hazy life had to be before Jesus was born.  I can't even imagine being alive in the years before Jesus' birth, can you?

When I think of I Corinthians 13:12,

Now we see things imperfectly as in a cloudy mirror,

but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. 

All that I know now is partial and incomplete,

but then I will know everything completely,

just as God now knows me completely,

I realize something even more wonderful!

One day all the things we don't understand here will make sense THERE!

The fog will be lifted.

The sky will be clear.

Our questions will be answered!

Our faith will be sight!

Yes, this Christmas Eve couldn't have started with anything better than a foggy scene out my window!!

Thank you, God, for reminding me that while many things that happen in life don't seem clear to me right now,

ONE DAY THEY WILL!!!

Merry Christmas to my blogging friends and family!

May we all look forward to the day when the SON returns and removes all fog PERMANENTLY!

Then "we will see everything with perfect clarity!"

I love you all so much,

It's CHRISTMAS here in Australia. Awake early but I can't put the blame on kids or grandkids but on a cat that thought I should wake up then vanished. I pray that you and yours have a blessed time in rejoicing in our Saviour's birth. As I write you are probably at your Christmas nativity and service at your church. So sorry you weren't home and I missed you.
