"May the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you" (2 Thessalonians 3:16).
That is my Christmas wish to all of you- to experience the peace that only God is able to provide. I am thankful that the busy time is over, but I am also thankful that aside from the busyness, I could feel God's peace. I am so thankful that He is with us all the time. What comfort!
