Our Rescuer

 Today I wanted to share some of my favorite words from our favorite children's Bible "The Jesus Storybook Bible". I think it's just perfect for Christmas!

 "No, the Bible isn't a book of rules, or a book of heroes. The Bible is most of all a story. It's an adventure story about a young Hero who comes from a far country to win back his lost treasure. It's a love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne - everything - to rescue the one he loves. It's like the most wonderful of fairy tales that has come true in real life! You see, the best thing about this story - is that it's true. There are lots of stories in the Bible, but all the stories are telling one Big Story. The story of how God loves his children and comes to rescue them. It takes the whole Bible to tell this story. And at the center of this story, there is a baby. Every story in the Bible whispers his name. He is like the missing piece in a puzzle - the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together, and suddenly you can see a beautiful picture. And this is no ordinary baby. This is the Child upon whom everything would depend. This is the Child who would one day - but wait. Our story starts where all good stories start. Right at the very beginning...."
  "You see no matter what, in spite of everything God would love his children - with a Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love. And though they would forget him, and run from him, deep in their hearts, God's children would miss him always, and long for him - lost children yearning for their home."
I have a few more gifts to make, but aside from that I'm as ready as I'll ever be for this Christmas. After the news we just received I think this will be one that my family NEVER forgets! I want it to be remembered as loving, thoughtful, fun, relaxed, full of excitement as we wait on our new addition, and FULL OF CHRIST!

Are you ready? I pray that this will be an unforgettable Christmas for you too! xo, Sam
