Here we go and so and so
End of the year and Christmas bliss Look at me in the mirror SMiLE on my face, Christmas music in the background taking me to a magical time and place I’m so happy I’ll pretend I like eggnog I’ll fight through the brain fog and when sleep hints I’ll remember this SMiLE on my face, Christmas music in the background and all the time spent in this magical time and place. I don’t want such a moment to end, but time goes on. Here we go and so and so. Ah, the end
of the year and Christmas bliss… May the new year bring forth increasing joy, increasing patience, increasing love, and increasing strength to endure all that life may bring!

2014 a knockin’…time goes on

The Exchange

I love Christmas. I love everything about it. A few years ago, I started to realize how much I hate exchanging Christmas gifts. If you want to give me a gift, give me the gift. Why are you waiting for Christmas to do the exchange? I don’t want an obligatory gift anyway.

Why do you think we exchange gifts for Christmas?

  1. Jesus was a gift to the world so now we give gifts to others
  2. The wise men brought gifts when Jesus was born

Interesting fact: The Bible doesn’t say that there were 3 wise men, it just says there were three gifts 😉 Cool, I know. It blew my mind too!

Today, I heard someone on radio, and he said what if you had a surprise birthday party, but no one invited you to it, everyone forgot about you, how would you feel? I never want Jesus to feel as if I’ve forgotten about Him, because it’s a horrible feeling to feel like you’re forgotten. When you have a relationship with someone you never want them to feel like they are forgotten. Keep LOVE on your mind this Christmas.

–How can we celebrate the birth of Christ?

–Why do you think we exchange gifts?

–What do you like most about Christmas?

Merry Christmas!!!

Insatiable One

It’s pretty simple to strike up a conversation with anyone during the holiday season.

Just ask, “Any special plans…?”

The thing about asking questions is that sometimes you really open up a can of worms. I asked someone what they would be doing for Christmas, and I got a lecture on how Christmas was just another day and how we don’t know when Jesus was born. A part of me wanted to say, “Duh, but I didn’t ask you that. And another thing, you don’t know when you were born, you only know what someone has told you, and we all know people lie and get things mixed up.” Those were just the thoughts floating in my head, but to prevent continuation of the lecture I dropped the subject.

All I could think about was how we finally have a day dedicated to the birth of Christ and this is the response I get—we don’t know his birthday. You can’t be serious. It does not matter his birthday, all that matters is that He was born.

No, it is not just another day. December 25th is a day set aside in remembrance of the birth of my Savior, and I dare not forget it. “Christmas is not a date, it’s a state of mind.”

If no one else says it, I will– Happy Birthday, Jesus. Thank you for all you’ve done! What a gift you really are. I love you forever and ever, my forever love. Oh, I know you don’t want a birthday cake…

 

Sweet Jesus

Giving Up

Sometimes I feel like throwing in the towel. But, you know what that means? More laundry.

Funny joke!

When someone in the living room can’t find the remote, all trust suddenly goes.
“You got the remote?”
“No.”
“Stand up.”

I’ve Got Questions!

We do things, and say things because of traditions passed down from our dearly beloveds, and we never ask why. Some parents go so far as to tell their children, “Do as I say, and don’t ask why.” This same teaching has crossed over into the church. I’ve heard many people say, “Don’t ask God why.” It’s imperative that we find the answers for ourselves. We all get it wrong sometimes, but something this important YOU’LL need to find the answer to for yourself. After all, it is YOUR relationship.

So, we can ask for materialistic things, but we can’t ask God, why?

No, if there is something going on in my life that God has allowed I am going to ask God, WHY. He has all the answers, so why can’t I ask the teacher? Why should I just sit there and hold in my frustration, can’t I talk it out with my father. My questioning God is not my doubting Him. If I’m tired and I’m angry, isn’t it better for me to open my mouth and tell Him exactly how I feel. This is how bitterness sets in, through unanswered questions and holding frustrations in. He’s my Father, of course I can ask Him, why.

Job didn’t curse God, but he vented. Vented and questioned God why is this happening. Who wouldn’t? When we’re confused, that’s what we do we ask questions.

I’m glad that I can vent to God, because sometimes humans just don’t give you what you’re looking for. I’m so glad I can lay in His arm and ask God, what’s up? If you’re lost and you need a little confirmation to know what’s real going on–ASK HIM. He’s concerned

about your concerns.

(Help me to be still and accept whatever it is that God allows. Some things we just don’t understand. He’s God, we’re human, He’s unlimited in His knowledge, and we’re limited in ours. Oh, but he knows what he’s doing and has all the answers!)

Reminder: “Though it may hurt you, it won’t harm you.” <—because, it’s what God allows.

Hebrews 4:16
Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace in our time of need.

Philippians 4:6
…let your requests be made known unto God. pra
