Just a short but sweet reminder that in the midst of Christmas chaos, you, my friend, are blessed.
I know, I know. Hard to remember that some days when the tower of unwrapped gifts threatens to avalanche and the grocery list is longer than your arm.
Harder still when you can’t seem to take your grieving eyes off that empty chair at the table.
And even the happy memories of Christmases past are painful.
I understand. Truly I do.
But we still have something to celebrate – the birth of our Savior. And the hope of new beginnings He freely gives us.
Therein is the beauty of the season … new life. And renewed life.
Will you take a moment and count your blessings?
Special love to my BBFFs grieving loss this year. You are in my heart and my prayers.

You are so right. As long as I can keep our focus on Jesus for being the reason for this season, a spirit of peace overtakes me until, that is, I lose focus on God.
It reminds me of Peter when he was walking on the water as soon he had taken his eyes off of Jesus, he begun to sink…
Help us, Abba, Father, not to lose focus on You through the hussle and bussle of the holiday season, but I pray, heavenly Father, that we will always be mindful of the things we are doing, and that You are the reason behind it…continue to heal those who are grieving their loved ones…surround them with Your shield of love and give them a double portion of peace which surpasses all understanding…continue heavenly Father to fulfill the will and purpose in our lives…ALL THE GLORY BELONGS TO YOU in Jesus name I pray…We love you Papa God..
A lovely prayer, Julie. And so appropo for today during this holy-day season. Hugs to you and yours, and a very blessed Christmas!
The most wonderful Blessing of all – our Savior who redeemed us! Thanks for all the great reminders of all our blessings!!
Wishing you and yours blessings galore, Sandi, as you celebrate the birth of our Savior.
