Do not accept information from the WRONG source! This is a blessed time of year as we prepare for the Lord’s birth, but it can be painful and stressful as well. Why? To name a few:
- away from family
The evil one always seeks to steal our joy and he does it well! PLEASE do not let him. In Christ, you are loved with a love you can NEVER LOSE! BELIEVE! It is the best gift ever and one you cannot lose!
Too often I focus on the fallen leaves
Scattered on my weed covered bit of earth.
Signs of death and decay?
Perhaps, and yet . . .
A change of focus,
And new buds and blossoms appear . . .
Or perhaps they lay in wait all along.
Beyond the shadows shines the blazing sun!

Just when you feel it all slipping away
and you are ready to let go,
you truly are on the very cusp of something GRAND!
Hold on, breathe deeply, keep praying, believe!

While we wait, disappointed, the Lord is with us. . . be open, blind eyes!
Where there is great love, there are always miracles.
