Oh, Lord Jesus, you know how I always was at Christmas, trying to find out surprises, overhearing conversations, sneaking around to rattle boxes or peek through papers. If mom and dad were gone I was known to pry open package ends and peek inside. Time was my enemy, as was waiting. Patience was found nowhere within me.
Is that perhaps why, on that big morning after awakening every half hour thought the night when all the papers were ripped off and the contents revealed there was a measure of happiness or joy and a measure of is that all there is? Was it because my focus was on things and not your birth? Was it because I tampered in an untimely fashion with those gifts?
Lord, there is an incredible gift wrapped and set aside for our upcoming wedding from you to us and then us to each other. I beseech you to let your strength be evident in our weakness! Let not even a corner of the paper be torn or wrinkled. Help us, I pray to cherish, trust, WAIT and not gobble. Oh, Jesus, help our focus to always be looking up to you. Father hear my cry.

(The above was my prayer and He did hear my cry!)
