The Christmas Thorn Bush

Journal 2007. Celebrating an American-style Christmas in Nigeria had its challenges. Because the pagan nationals worshiped the rocks and trees, we shied away from erecting a Christmas tree in our home. But one year we persuaded our parents to cut down a thorn bush on which we hung our popcorn strings and homemade ornaments.acacia_2568527

This week I find myself in a situation where I may potentially run into someone who pricks me every time I get near her.

Jesus says, “Put an ornament of blessing on the projecting thorn!”

Thanks, Lord. I can do that.
