This photo of Matthew (left) and Nathan was taken at their school's Christmas program entitled Three Wise Men and a Baby. Having these guys around over the Christmas holiday makes the festivities more special than ever. We shudder to think where they might have been had we not adopted them into the Fisher family as toddlers.
In the same way, I wonder where I would be this Christmas night had not the King of Glory stepped into time in the form of a baby, grown to maturity, allowed His blood to be shed for me and then willingly adopted me into His family. Tonight I'm God's child through faith in His Son. I'm an heir of God and a joint-heir with Jesus Christ.
Tonight Matthew and Nathan are ours forever! Hope you had a blessed Christmas with family and friends.
Father, I pray that those without family, those who don't know the joy of true friendship, those without a home, those who have been alienated from society, those who've been estranged from loved ones...would know the depth of Your love. Father, somehow, touch their lives (through me if you choose) and let these dear people know that they are not without hope. Through Your Son Jesus I pray, AMEN!
