Proverbs 17:22, "A happy heart does good, like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones."
This Christmas season, God has highlighted to me the word merry in Merry Christmas! The word merry means to "be very happy and cheerful." It is an opportunity to show joy and happiness. I love that! As believers, we all have something to be very happy about and right now, we can be happy that Christmas is all about Jesus and the relationship that we get to have with God because of Jesus’ birth, life, sacrifice, death, resurrection, and ascension.
Matthew 3:17, "And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, "This is My beloved son, in whom I am well pleased."
After I read this verse, God gave me this thought: If Jesus, the Son of God needed to audibly hear His Father’s voice Honor Him, then how much more do our kids need to hear our voices as we choose to honor them!
