Tonight as we sat in our living room reading our devotion for our Jesse tree, I realized what a gift I'd been given. I have three precious babies that God has entrusted to me. I get the privilege of sharing Christ with these little men. My hubby and I have the chance to raise these guys in a home where Jesus is pursued. 

This thought overwhelmed me with joy. I so don't deserve this chance. I am by no means worthy to be an example of my Lord. Trust me when I say, I have some bad mommy moments. Yet, God chose me to be these little boys mom! Each I have opportunity to share Christ with my kids. How special to have that time.   What an undeserved gift. 
Then there is my husband. We met in high school and I thought I was crazy for him then. I was , but it has only grown. I am so blessed to have married the most amazing man I know. I truly hope our boys grow up to be just like their daddy. He is hard working, a servant, a leader, a friend, and a wonderful husband and father. Plus, he is super good looking. :) He each day points our family toward Jesus. I am blessed beyond measure.

I am blessed to have these guys. I look forward to the blessing of of our baby girl coming home someday. I have amazing friends. I mean, truly, I've got people in my life who I know would be there for me in any situation. I am overwhelmed when I think of the blessings in my life. 

Grace is getting what you don't deserve. As my family is taking the next few weeks to remember Christ's love for us. His perfect plan, to come to us as a baby. I am overwhelmed. I am taken back by how much God loves me. He loved me so much that he has given me true friendship, true love, true joy. He has given me beautiful children and a perfect for me husband. And those are gifts I don't ever want to take for granted. But they can't overshadow the biggest gift of all. God of the universe came down from his throne in heaven, to become a baby, and grow up to die as a sacrifice for the sins of this world. He died for me. That is overwhelming.
