1,000 Gifts

"We get our Christmas miracle. We get God with us. He withholds no good thing from us. And the good things in life are not so much health but holiness, not so much the riches of this world but relationship with God, not so much our plans but His presence -- and He withholds no good thing from us because the greatest things aren't ever thingsHe doesn't withhold Jesus from us.  And no matter where we are -- we can always have as much of Jesus as we want. We can always have as much of God as we want."
