Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
Happy Holidays! I wish you all an amazing Christmas season, filled with joy and love. I know that for some of you all, Christmas is a hard time. It’s a time when you’re reminded of loss of family, your status of singleness, and just the fact that you are spending this time alone. But, be of good cheer! You have a whole family, here, ready to love you and encourage you throughout this time.
Once upon a time, I used to dread the holidays; but then I realized that I am so blessed. I have an amazing family who loves me for me, wonderful friends and I am living my dream. So, I would like to encourage each of you to find the blessings in your lives, the little miracles that holds an eternal smile on your faces. I believe that God works all around us to remind us that we have so much more than what we think. We have Him, friends, roofs over our heads, clean water and we live (well some of us) in a country that affords us amazing freedoms. I am truly blessed and even though I may not have a significant other or a spouse, I am not alone because God is with me. One of my favorite verses to dwell on during the holidays is Matt. 28:20 b, which says “… And lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” We are never alone. May you find comfort in this verse and realize that He is all around you with his arms open wide- ready to love you well.
I believe that Christmas is not about gifts and material things but about loving others well. I believe that Christmas is about spreading joy and sharing the greatest gift of Christ with the world. For it is my belief, that the day this sweet baby boy came to the world- the world was changed forever. Jesus came to change the world. He came to bring hope and to bring love to the outsiders. He came to bring joy to the depressed, to rescue those who were hanging on by a wing and a prayer. He came for broken people, for those that people gave up on, for those that were deemed to be unlovable. Jesus came for you and me and it was with compassion and love that he entered into our world ready to give up everything for us. He loves us well and during this season, may we share his love with others and love well.
Anyways…family, I love each and everyone of you. Thank you guys for sticking with me over the years. Thank you for reading my posts, thank you for your comments, thank you for investing in me as I seek to pour into each and every one of you. You guys have loved me well over these past few years and for that I am so grateful! Thank you for being my family during some of the hardest seasons of my life and I pray that God will pour His love out on each and every one of you. You guys have loved me well and I seek to continue to love each and every one of you. MERRY CHRISTMAS FAMILY!!!!
Until next time,
