Christ Child is Born

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

This has been a growing week for me, being off work gives me lots of time to reflect on what I want to do and where I want to go, my next chapter. Today being Christmas Eve, the birth of Christ, the new covenant, the beginning. I didn't go home this year. Kind of bittersweet, but I understand the dynamics of my family has changed and its okay to make new traditions.

My layoff time has altered my pay periods a bit but I am not going to let that rain down on my parade. I went and bought some groceries to try new recipes tomorrow-things I have never had the courage to make. I met up with my sister friend and we delivered homemade Christmas cards from the church to local police, fire and hospital workers doing their shift on the holiday watch. It was humbling. It wasn't about me. It was about serving with a glad heart emoticon

I thought often about my Mom in heaven, being prayerful, not sorrowful that she is not physically here with me. It is my firm and solemn belief that she is happy and whole with Jesus having the biggest celebration of all, His birth! Away so far in that manger, look how it has affected the world more than 2000 years later. I thank God for the birth of Jesus.

I look forward to 2013, the year my women's group is calling the year of peace! Oh I thank God for giving me discernment of spirit and wisdom revelation knowledge. Things in life happen for a reason and I am open to the Lord's guidance. Merry Christmas! emoticon

    Sounds as if you are having a blessed Christmas. Your focus is right on: Jesus first and others second. Keep your focus on Him in 2013 and it can't help but be a great year. Merry Christmas.
