Christmas Gifts… they come from Me, too.  Jesus… The First Christmas Gift.  But I give Christmas Gifts all year.  Surprise gifts that come from My Son.  Gifts of peace, love, and joy.  He showed the world what is necessary for true happiness… the gift of life itself — does anyone see it?  It is from there that all of your joy will proceed.  What is life on Earth but a fleeting moment?  It is a great time of growing in love, in Holiness, loving like Me.  It is a great opportunity for all if they will but take it.  No need to shrink back in the fear of man.  Take up your cross and follow Me.
