Looking forward to 2015 and moving on

Saturday, December 27, 2014

I am so grateful to have this time off to reflect, to prepare for the new year ahead, to give thanks for God's blessings and set new goals and ideas for 2015. I realize I spent Christmas Day kinda of bothered by the harsh words of my father and as I reflect now two days after the Christ birth celebration, I realize that life is way to short to be twisted in a knot over someone else's insecurities and hang ups.

I learned in 2014 that it is okay to outgrow tired trifling folks and move on. Its okay to disagree, it can be done respectfully. Its okay to stay on my side of the street and handle my own business. It is okay not to be bothered.

I celebrate 2014 as the year I got married again! I am very happy and blessed in my new life as Mrs. Miller. I am still learning Lou and he is definitely still learning me. We have differences in opinion from time to time, but we respect each other and that is what is important. I truly love my Minnesota Man and I pray daily for God's guidance in our marriage.

My family-despite our disagreements, I do have a great family. We may be distance apart, but we care about each other welfare and health and happiness.

I am still learning patience. I have to pace myself and grow in grace and think before I speak with emotion, especially at work. It can be a trying time, a stressful period. I am learning that favor isn't fair, especially when you are not on the receiving end and I am trusting God to do the right thing. And He will. emoticon emoticon emoticon

  Such a good exercise to look back to see what you've learned, what still needs to be worked on and then look forward to the new year and what God has in store for you!
Happy New Year friend!

Was it a Merry Christmas?

Friday, December 26, 2014

Yesterday, we celebrated the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ. I did my best to keep Christ in Christmas, my first Christmas as a Miller. We started a new tradition by going to the movies and we saw Exodus. It was interesting. We cooked a fantastic meal together, or should I say my hubby grilled a great meal of steak and lobster tails. It was delicious emoticon emoticon and we set up our new PlayStation 4.

I tried to block out some harsh words my Dad said that kinda of divided the family a bit. For the first time in all my years-I didn't talk to him on Christmas. First time ever in my life. Wow. I asked myself am I being stubborn-probably a bit but I will not tolerate anyone talking against my Mom, she spent this Christmas in heaven and wouldn't tolerate anyone being nice nasty about her. She raised us girls well, I do not believe in dividing the masses and that is what he attempted and it just angered the majority of my sisters. Life goes on, and yes although I am hurt, I still hold my head up high and honor my Mom, even in the grave.

Overall, my Christmas was quiet, it was blessed and I am thankful. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sorry that your dad is speaking harsh words that are causing division at this time of the year amongst the family. I'm pleased that the newlyweds are doing well and I know the new year will be ushering in abundant blessings. Enjoy the holidays and keep on sparking sis!

Countdown to the birth of Christ

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

Although I have family members with birthdays in December, the birth of Christ is a special one. The king of KIngs, and the Lord of Lords. I tried to stick to a birthday/Christmas gift budget-I did go a bit overboard. I tried to plan ahead, some things I covered, some I didn't. I asked God for guidance and pray that I do not make the same mistakes twice.

Lord as we approach the birth of your Son who was born to die for our sins on the cross, I am grateful for your grace and mercy in my life. I know I miss the mark and I do not always make the grade, but I am so grateful that my sins are washed away by the blood of Jesus and your grace mercy and new each day!

    None of us hit the mark or make the grade. Only one Perfect Person ever walked this earth, and he turned out to be God. We celebrate His birth during this season.

Sweet Birthday

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Today is my husband's birthday and I was able to surprise him with some new duds and a serenade of my various happy birthday tunes. It also makes that I am halfway through this busy December, nine days until Christmas-Lordy! emoticon

I am in semi stress mode, having missed some school deadlines and dealing with this darn Crohn's disease that decided to rear its ugly head. It has been dormant for some years now and I having some difficulty swallowing and such. I pray that it isn't anything serious for the devil is busy trying to destroy the Saints. I am staying in prayer mode, I recognize acts of the demonic one and I keep Christ first in my thoughts, words and deeds!

Is it really nine days until Christmas...ho ho ho! emoticon emoticon emoticon

The last month of 2014. I am going to make a positive impact on my life and make it great. 24 days until the birth of Christ, 16 days to my sweet Lou's birthday, 23 days until I get another vacation. Life is what you make of it, I am going to go for it.
