A few days ago I posted a wish list of "things" that I like but today is my REAL wish list for Christmas. I am a very blessed girl and there is truly not one thing in this world that I need. I have a wonderful savior, a husband that loves me, 3 fantastic kids that are healthy and more family than most, best friends that are there through thick and thin and a wonderful church family that stands in the gap. We have a beautiful roof over our heads, food on our table and shoes on our feet. God has truly blessed us! But my wish involves those that are not as fortunate as we are. My wish involves those that don't know Jesus and the hope and peace that only He can give. I pray that God directs someone to them that can share just what it means to have a savior. My wish involves those whose marriage is in shambles right now and families that are being torn apart. I pray for peace in the hearts of those couples and their children. There is ALWAYS hope, trust me! My wish involves children that are fighting horrible diseases right now. There are many that will not be home for Christmas because they are in a hospital somewhere or they are already rejoicing in heaven. I pray that not one more child will have to endure such a thing as cancer. My wish involves those have been hurt by a friend. I pray that hearts will be forgiven and fences will be mended. My wish involves those that have problems within their church families. I pray that we will all realize one thing, churches are filled with humans! Non-perfect, sinful humans that need to realize there was only one perfect one.
My wish involves those that do not have a roof over their heads, food on their table or even shoes on their feet. These are tough times for most but even worse times for some. I pray that you will find a warm place to call home and the ability to receive everything that you need to live. The biggest "thing" on my wish list is that all of our troops will make it back home safe and sound. Praise God for those that have made the ultimate sacrifice and will not be with their family this Christmas. To ALL of our service men and women, the Blaine family would like you to know that we appreciate all that you have done and continue to do for this wonderful country we call home.
So there you have it, my real wish list for Christmas 2010. Merry Christmas from our family to yours and may God bless you!
