It's Christmas everyday

Someone who had laser eye surgery done to correct his myopia once said to me that enjoying 20/20 vision the moment he wakes up is like having Christmas everyday.

No longer needing contacts or glasses is pretty cool, but that's not as great as the original Christmas present.

For me, being able to wake up every morning and start the day with a clean slate is an awesome gift. What I mean is that we all make mistakes, we all have regrets and we all struggle with guilt over something we've done in the past. And these errors cast shadow on our minds and hearts whether we like it or not. But in Jesus, God redeems our errors and forgives us completely again and again. A guilt-free clear conscience everyday, that's what we enjoy from receiving Jesus--God's perfect gift.

"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning..." Lamentations 3:22-23
