A thank you note.

I just popped my Christmas present thank you notes in the mail. My hubby rolls his eyes every time I write one, saying, “You thanked them in person; isn’t that enough?”


But there’s still something to be said for writing out a good old-fashioned thank you.

So, in the spirit of Christmas, here’s my thank you note to God, for sending His one and only Son into this world.


I’d add a “dear” at the beginning like I typically do, but doesn’t that seem kind of redundant for You? God, alone You’re enough. More than enough, actually. You’re beyond worthy of a “dear” preceding Your name.

Your Christmas gift was truly the greatest gift I have ever received. I couldn’t ask for a better present than Your dear Son, wrapped in the soft flesh of baby skin. In fact, I’m still in awe of Your generosity. Sacrificing Your one and only Son to save me and my brothers and sisters is just – wow. No words can even begin to describe my appreciation.

I thank you for every breath I breathe. For encompassing me with Your arms of love. For granting me Your grace and forgiveness. For blessing me with countless other gifts, both big and small, of which I am so undeserving. For comforting me. For telling my soul to fear not and to faint not. For holding my hand. And for keeping my path well-lit.

Please continue showing me how to share Your gifts in ways I can’t even imagine in 2011.

Thanks for always being there. You’re amazing.
