A special needs mom’s Christmas wish list is far from typical. And it mostly contains items Santa can’t manufacture at the North Pole nor fit under a tree. But I was reminded this past Sunday at church that my wish list has nevertheless been fulfilled.
What’s on your list, momma? Do you need a peaceful night of rest? The answer to an impossible situation? Strength to move a mountain or stand in a storm? A warm, loving, non-judgmental hug? Well, here it is, just for you, and it came on Christmas morning:
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
He is all you need. Sounds simple, almost silly, but I promise it is true. Let HIM be your counselor this year, lean on HIS might, know HIS fatherly adoration of you and your child, and rest in HIS peace that passes all understanding.
If I could reach out to every special mom I know, or who reads this blog, this is the gift I would want you to have. Merry Christmas dear friend!
