I am all about great deals, aren't you?   My daughter is the queen of the GREAT DEAL!  That girl can find more amazing buys along with coupon codes, free shipping and discounts than anyone I know.  I love it!

Right now the stores are all competing for our business, and if you are like me, you are scouring the ads and the emails for the best buys on what you are searching for this CHRISTmas.  I understand that they even have an app for those of you with iphones that will search out the best price on any item you are looking for! 

Here are just a few of the great buys I've seen just today: has 35% off all photo books.... has 25% off EVERYTHING and FREE SHIPPING.... has huge sales on everything and for TODAY (Monday) only FREE SHIPPING, no minimum purchase required...

Old Navy has Buy One Get One FREE on all sweaters for the family and if you  use the coupon from Sunday's paper and spend $50, you get $10 back Get 5 photo gifts for $5 each with FREE SHIPPING

15% off EVERYTHING at Kohl's with shopping is the last day

HP All in One printer at Walmart $20 shipped (includes ink cartridges)

Walmart - Hungry Hippos game .24 with coupon from this weeks Smart Source coupon $5 off 1 game

Hope these will inspire some of you to get your shopping done while the deals last.  But you know, just as the deals won't last, neither will any of these things that you are buying.  All of them, even the BEST of them, will eventually wear out, come apart, be replaced by a better product, or go out of style.  None of them will last forever.  Some of them will not even survive CHRISTmas!! 

However, there is a gift that will never wear out, never grow old, never go out of style or be replaced by a better model.  It never requires batteries or chargers.  It can never be outgrown.  The value of it will never diminish.  In fact, it grows more precious the longer you have it. 

That gift is JESUS.

He is the same yesterday, today and forever more.

He is more priceless than rubies, more precious than diamonds.

He will never disappoint you, never fail you, never leave you or forsake you.

The one you purchase the above gift for may decide tomorrow that you are not good enough, not pretty enough, not rich enough or that you do not measure up in some form or fashion.  But Jesus says come just the way you are and I will love you forever.  In fact, He said "But God commended His love toward us that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."  Romans 5:8 

This CHRISTmas you can have the greatest GIFT of all.  You can have the gift of Jesus Christ, an eternal gift that keeps on giving forever and ever and ever.  He truly is the greatest gift of all.  Do you know Him?  If not, please contact me.  I'd love to share with you how you can have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and have the best CHRISTmas you have ever had!!!!!!!!!
