I have been thinking how beautiful the love of God is. The best of all is that this sweet, gentle, yet most powerful love is free, yours for the asking. For this Christmas, ask the Lord to give you this love fully. Let this love surround you, embrace you, soak and permeate you. Let this love fill your heart and mind. Let this love purify you, renew you both internally and externally, transforming you into a creature lovely for the Lord to look at. Let this love take over your life, guiding you through life without fear and worry, but always with courage and hope. Last, ask this love to give you humility and help you surrender to the Lord without reservation.
This request has to be the best possible present you can ever give to both God and yourself.
