‘Tis the Season to be jolly!


Another year is drawing to a close, our lives have been enriched with beautiful memories, some difficult times, a lot of blessed times and loads of laughter.  This year was a good year, from the beginning to the end. 

This is the first time in a very long time I feel excited about Christmas, I used to dread this time of year, it seemed to be a difficult time, loads of tears, and heartbreak.

It will be different this year, my children and I and our families are going to spend Christmas time together.  There are peace and quiet and we all are feeling good about ourselves.  The stress of difficulty is gone.

Relationship
I remarried and there are stepchildren, then, of course, my own children and granddaughters.   We are all getting on much better, live is a little more relaxed.

Responsibilities
And of course, the biggest stress I face is a ‘job loss’.  I am praying the Lord will bless me next year with a good paying job.  I believe God can move mountains.

My Decisions
My husband’s favorite antic the decisions you make today affect your tomorrow.  You know these words haunt my life, and I really don’t even want to think about things like making any decisions.  You can make a wrong choice and it can come and bite you.

Moving forward
For my life I have decided to move forward, let the people who hate me, hate me.  The people who talk ill about me, God will deal with them.  The judgmental and gossiping people; the same, leave them to their gossip, God will deal with them.  I think that each person who feels they have the right to discuss my life and tell people how they perceive me, may they get exactly what they say about me. 

Luckily my family isn't in this category and I know they will never bad mouth me.  The bitter and nasty words spoken against me is from so called friends, shame.

2017
I believe with all my heart, God is going to bless me with the sales of my book, I will publish my book and I will be able to leave a legacy for my children and grandchildren.  God is my rock, I will not be moved.  What an awesome prospect.  I adore the Lord with all my heart.  Amen

Acts 2:38-40 (ICB)38 Peter said to them, “Change your hearts and lives and be baptized, each one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 This promise is for you. It is also for your children and for all who are far away. It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.”40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
