WOW.... it has been over a year since my last post.... I can't believe I have been away that long! Revelation 2:2-4 (NIV) "I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked men, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary. Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love." This scripture tugged at my heart strings this morning! Have I lost my first love? This is a good question. I have felt lately very frustrated in my spirit. grumbly almost! Is that the spirit of the Lord or the world? Hmmmm.... Maybe its time to run back to my first love. The pure love of Christ. This Christmas season I want others to see a reflection of CHRIST in me.. Not a reflection of "imperfect Holly".... I know this time of year can get very hectic and busy with the TO DO LIST - I hope and pray that it never gets to busy to focus on Christ and the reason for this Christmas season in the first place. May we not get so busy do good works that we forget to sit at his feet and just remember to worship him and be thankful for his amazing grace. Hugs, Holly
