Wow what a great lesson we had tonight at our bible study... all about the focus of Christmas and how most of it misses the point. Which is, that God gave US a gift... salvation through his Son. We don't have to earn it, it's a gift. All we have to do is accept it. Hard for us to believe though... somehow we can't accept that it doesn't have to be earned, it's a gift! After every lesson, Gary asks for comments and questions. Most of the time we are silent because he has our heads spinning... he is continuously amazing us.
Between work and bible study I had a quick visit with Mary. She is such an inspiration, always cheerful... she is doing much better, hopes to come home soon. This interim rehab facility is really working her hard so that she CAN come home. But she still has a long haul so continued prayers would be much appreciated.
