The Most Precious Gift

Send to Kindle
by C. J. Peterson
People rushing around, not understanding the reason;
Don’t have any comprehension that this is the Season.
A baby born, wrapped in swaddling clothes,
To be a sacrifice, he was willing to pose.
A gift to the world of the most sacrificial love;
A gift, that often uses the symbol of a dove.
Peace on Earth, good will toward men;
Doing everything humanly possible to do all that they can.
They don’t understand, it’s not what they do;
They don’t understand, they don’t have a clue.
The Father – giving of His Child;
The Son – making a sacrifice that is hardly mild.
The crucifixion – a place hardly of glory;
The Resurrection – our saving grace story!
The most precious gift, that only Jesus could give;
The perfect blood sacrifice, so that in eternity, with Him, we will live!
John 15:13 – Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.  Jesus is the reason for the season! Share His love with another today!!

About the Author:

CJ PetersonI was raised in a Christian military home, but it was far from tranquil. Like many young people, I left home as soon as possible, and went my own way, thinking I knew better. To me anything was better than where I was. Unfortunately, some of the choices I made led me away from the Lord, and sometimes that path was a dangerous one.
God is faithful, even when His children are lost and wandering. When I needed Him most, the Lord was there for me. He led me out of that danger and into a new life…a life where I am loved and appreciated. He taught me what ‘real love’ is, and what it’s supposed to look like through my family and wonderful husband.
Who knew that “Prince Charming” actually existed? I hoped and prayed he was out there, and I found him! He is a 24 year Navy veteran and the love of my life! With his encouragement, I rediscovered the creativity I thought I had lost a long time ago, and have begun to publish the books I have written through the years. The words in these books helped me through my struggles, and my prayer is they will help others.
The way in which I write my Christian Books, is unique to say the least. I am a realistic Christian. People are people, they stumble, they fall, they trip, but God continues to dust us off, and set us back on the path again, if we just learn to trust in Him.
The challenges faced in my past give me a perspective on the realities of living the Christian life that some people may never see. There are times we wander away from God…there are times when we draw closer to Him. In our arrogance we think we can make it on our own. However, the One who made this world, and who made you, has the answers, and thankfully, He forgives our impudence and petulance and loves us through it all. God is a God of love, mercy, grace, and guidance. He loves us and only wants the best for us.
Those who have read my books, describe them as encouraging, frustrating, and a wonderful read all at the same time. The same character that could have you crying one minute, will have you cheering the next! One of my editors, stated that ‘she was so into the story, that she forgot to edit, and had to go back to do the editing’.
I pray you will enjoy my books as well!

While the stories are fiction, the journey is real.
