30 Best Couple Christmas Gifts - Cute Gift Ideas for Couples
For her birthday, she would write a short wish list. One item on her list was volunteering to make dinner. Another was giving her a hug every morning before we left for school. And it goes beyond the big-ticket items of life like getting married or having children. If you count the small things, you are surrounded by presents every day. Carry around a little notepad and write them all down. For example, today, I woke up gently without an alarm in my warm, fluffy Queen-sized bed. My breakfast of almond crepes with lemon curd turned out perfectly tasty. A wise, wonderful friend came over for coffee later on in the morning.

Life is short, and you love your wife, so enjoy being with her. This is what you are supposed to do as you struggle through life on this earth. One bad minute can ruin your whole day. But what would it look like if we collected all the good and see how it outweighs the bad? Just the little things.

When trying to cheer up the frightened von Trapp children during a storm, she sings about her favorite things that include raindrops on roses and warm woolen mittens. Their stories encourage me to trust that every detail of my life, including the death of our son, Mark, has eternal significance as well.
We may never know on this side of heaven how our walk of faith is impacting the next generation. Perhaps what you see as mundane or just normal and sometimes boring family life is actually the place where God is raising up one who will impact the world with his or her passion for Jesus. Is your faith generic or personal? Do you understand the difference between a superficial relationship to an impersonal God and a relationship of intimacy with our loving God through His Son, Jesus?
God promises when we acknowledge our need for a Savior, repent of our sins and ask Jesus for forgiveness, He will forgive us. He promises from that point on, His Son lives in us and nothing — nothing at all — can pull us out of His grip. Is this the gift God wants to give to you this Christmas?
