|Christmas in August: a project from a recent family devotion. We liked having a reminder of Jesus' humble birth sitting in our dining space for the week.|
No matter how wrong "everything" gets - whether it is the simple frustrations of daily life, or the tragedies and hard times that come along less often (thankfully!), I can be reassured that not everything is wrong.
Because the King of Kings was born in that manger, lived a perfect life, paid the punishment for my sins with his death, and then rose again, I can have hope, no matter what circumstances come my way.
So whether I am facing a major crisis or a minor one, In August or December, I can see that baby in the lowly manger and know that "because He lives, I can face tomorrow" (and today)! :)
