Okay. I 'm going to tell you a big secret! I'm really excited about Christmas, and for no other reason is that every year after dreading all of the process of the holidays, I have decided to embrace it. Instead of running away from it. Instead of trying, I'm just going to do it. Besides, I love Jesus way too much to not celebrate Him. Confessing that I am looking forward to the holidays proves how fast I am improving. On the inside. I just hope it makes it's way to the outside.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
Sometimes, they love you. Sometimes, they hate you. They love you to lie, they love the lies you tell. Sometimes, they call you out, sometimes, you become fortunate enough to call them out. They listen, or your words fall on deaf ears. Sometimes, we learn, or we refuse. Turn away, return once again. Prodigal son or daughter, won't you come on home! Forget it all, because it will soon be forgotten. Never forget! The sooner you accept, the sooner you can get on the ship to move on. Move forward. Forge ahead, don't look back, because it always looks as bad as it was or as good as your mind will let you believe. So celebrate, and still hold a grudge. Let go, and life can be more authentic. More real. Life can be more, if allowed. Ignore, and be even more ill. Be your own stumbling block is more of what we hear today, but tomorrow will be gone, full of regret. And we just have to stop that foolishness. So let's all be willing.
