Have A Blessed Christmas

I find myself next to Toby. He is playing a game on the phone and here I am posting a good night and a very blessed Christmas.

In the US in a couple of hours will be Christmas Eve.

Toby and I will Celebrate it with our friends Pastor Steve and his wife, Elena plus a few more people a small gathering with friends

The best time It will be when Kim, (my daughter) if you don’t know and are reading this, her husband and our 3 grandkids, will “Skype” us.

Not the best way to spend Christmas Eve or Day but…

I was saving some money to go see my father and his “girlfriend” at the Canary Islands but they had a change of plans, left the Canary Islands and they are now o a ship going to the South Of Spain. The cost of the Plane is about the same. I hope I will know tomorrow.

 how they are doing.

Due to the Holidays, they could not find a cabin so, as old as they are, especially my father 80 years old, has only a sleeping chair to sit and sleep in.

I have no idea what they are called, they are like small recliners where they expect you to sleep. For the last 3 days including tonight, with bronchitis and risk of Pneumonia.

My father is still under the impression he is 40 years old or younger and I can’t help but ask God Daily to save him and help him.

I will know what is going on and if they could find an inexpensive place to stay at least until after Christmas when I get up in the US.

I pray now, in Jesu’s Name for them to regain health and be OK and I ask this in the name of Jesus our Savior and, thank God that He does hear prayers.

I must keep trusting in the Lord for my dad well-being.

I know how big God’s Heart IS and I count on this true and simple fact and know that he and his Lady will be OK.

I just wanted to share this and vent, thank you for reading it.

Have a happy Christmas Eve, don’t spend all your bonus money if you get one and, just be intuned to the one real reason to have a Christmas, The Birth Of Our Lord, our God, our Savior, Jesus Christ.

I have a lot to thank HIM for.,

Later,

Pat. Child Of God.

God’s Standards
“Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.” (Jeremiah 9:23-24)

It is remarkable how different are our human standards of value from those of God. But what should be the criteria by which men recognize hearts of lovingkindness, attitudes of justice, and characters of righteousness? These are the attributes of our Creator and Savior, and it is our achievements in these areas that determine our real standing, in the scales of eternity, before Him. Human wisdom, might, and riches easily generate pride, and pride is “the condemnation of the devil” (1 Timothy 3:6).

Thus the Scripture has to remind us “that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: . . . That no flesh should glory in his presence” (1 Corinthians 1:26, 29). We should, indeed, desire wisdom, might, and riches, but not as measured by the world. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom” (Proverbs 9:10). “As poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things” (2 Corinthians 6:10). “My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9).

Let lovingkindness become the standard of true wisdom; justice, the measure of real power; and righteousness, our criterion of riches. All are found fully only in Jesus Christ.

If we must “glory” in something, let it be the cross. “But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world” (Galatians 6:14). HMM
