"Surely we are not sufficiently sensible of the infinite tenderness of Jesus!" Spurgeon. Psalm 62: 8 Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. "When grief presses you to the dust, worship there, 'pour out your heart before Him. God is a refuge for us.' This sweetens sorrow and takes away it's sting." Spurgeon.
I dashed out to the shops tonight with my beloved and Jessica. Actually I spent most of the time sitting down waiting for them as I am not too mobile yet. I sat and watched all the frantic passers-by. Scurrying here and there and everywhere...looking for this and looking for that....And I couldn't wait to get home again! I sure do love to tarry home! What a blessing to be home with my children. And to have time to pause and enjoy Christ at this time of the year! All those shoppers seemed so frantic in their haste to be ready for the big day, a day that for most of them is void of eternal meaning - so it all boils down to having a big and happy party.
I hope you get a chance to tarry home and enjoy the real reason for the season this Christmas!
