One Thousand Gifts (continued)

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful" 
(Colossians 3:15).

Although it is not officially the winter season yet, the weather outside proves differently.  It's easy to welcome the winter season, because I LOVE the snow!  I also love the season of advent.  I am thankful for the joy and peace that only Christ can give.  However, I know that there are many people who do not experience that peace or joy.  It's my prayer that they too will be able to "Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts..."

Continuing to give thanks...
