Please be praying for James Kim the 35 year old father of 2, who is lost in southern Oregon. They got stranded on a Thanksgiving trip. The mother and daughters have been found, but he is still missing. He went for help on Saturday morning, and has not returned.
This is the time of year when we make our lists and check them more than twice. Many people even make sure they have gifts for their pets.
But do we remember to include Jesus in our list? After all, it is His birthday we are celebrating.
He gave his life for us. What can we give him?
Our lives. Our love. Our obedience.
