Alaska - Christmas Edition (Never published)

Disclaimer : I was going through my drafts and saw that this was never posted.  So here's a late Christmas note.

It's Christmas day.

Philippians 2:8-10 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth 
Negative 20 degree weather, in someone else's home, away from my family.  But today is not about me.  It's about my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  364 days out of the year we forget this.  He came down from heaven on this day.  It may not have been this exactly December 25, it may not have been during this time of year at all, but one day a long time ago, God sent His only son down to die for our sins.  The presents, the games, the food, the fun is all amazing and I am grateful.  However I am more thankful for the chance to live eternally.

On another note.  I am in Alaska right now.  Yes, it's negative 20 degrees and when you inhale you cough your lungs out.  I'm having the best time right now....
