The Threads

I arrived home today. It is a short visit, for in just a couple of days we leave again for a family vacation to Canada. Upon my arrival, my son excitedly told me that while I was gone he had gone to a garage sale and purchased "for free" some threads for me! He asked me to close my eyes so he could give them to me. I had no idea what he was about to present to me, but I was very curious, and he was very excited.
When he told me to open my eyes I saw a plastic container full of plastic beads and strings for necklace making. Lots of colors and beads with letters. I opened the lid and made a necklace for him with his name, it was fun.
The joy of gifts, the joy of watching his delight in giving me a free gift! This is what Jesus does for me everyday. He has purchased for me with His blood my freedom. He has purchased with His blood a free pass to heaven and it is good. My name is written on a golden crown and I am sitting on the throne, right there beside Him. It's exciting, it's free for me to take, it's lovely.
So, Jesus, Say That Again, because I like to hear it. You have purchased the gift of freedom for me with Your blood, Oh how I praise Your Holy Name!
