The Voice of My Father
I adore Christmas! It's a time where families draw close to celebrate the greatest gift the world has ever known: the gift of Christ Jesus. Perhaps it's because I remember well the overwhelming joy I felt when I received that precious gift that I also adore gift-giving. There is something magical about seeking and finding the perfect gift for the one you love, then awaiting their reaction as they open it on Christmas Day. A gift expresses the affection you feel for someone; it is an opportunity to demonstrate in a tangible and creative manner just how much they mean to you. Given my passion for gift-giving, it's no wonder that Christmas 2018 was one I greatly anticipated. For I had found what I believed to be the perfect gift for Gary, and couldn't wait to see what his response would be when he opened the bag in which it resided.

- through prayer,
- through conversations I have with others about Him,
- through experiences (good and bad) that allow me to learn more about Him and about myself,
- through the nudging of His Spirit within me, and
- through His Word.
