Merry Blessed Christmas!

The eve of Christmas started with a steady rain through the morning. To many of us, rain represents the inconvenience of dripping umbrellas, wet shoes, soggy socks, and in some cases, runny make-up and hair wax dripping onto our faces. This is of course, mainly because we're urbanized people. :P

But looking at the heart of God, this rain symbolizes beautiful things. The abundance of His blessings, the promise of a bountiful harvest, and the welcoming of new life. "For as the rain comes down to water the earth, it brings forth and bud, gives seed to the sower and bread to the eater. And so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void but shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it." (if you wanna read the exact words, its from Isaiah 55:10)

If there's a burden in your heart, dun worry. Know that the birds of the air are always fed, and the lilies of the fields are always clothed in beautiful colors. Your situation and everything else - they will be alright. Give thanks, because His promises cant return to Him void.

We hope this year has been as beautiful to you as it has been for us. Thank you for loving us, and though we may not say it often, we love you too. :)

Merry Christmas.
