Keep Looking Up!   Leave a comment

The holiday season is upon us, and it seems almost everyone has problems or conflicts or family issues that arise during this time.  It is easy to get discouraged and depressed.  I always remember lonely hurting people this time of year.  Many years I’ve included myself in that.

I have a post that has been percolating in my back brain on hazing and bullying, but I am not ready to post it yet.  Recently I have felt the Lord has been telling me one thing over and over, and so I wanted to share it with you.


By that God means — don’t keep your mind on the things of the earth.  Keep your eyes and your mind focused on HIM.  And all that means.  His majesty, his awesomeness, his power, his love, his grace, his glory and honor.  Keep looking up!  Don’t get distracted or dragged down or sucked in or too busy.

As always, take care and God bless.

‘Tis the Season   Leave a comment

Ah, December.  That time of year when the weather is colder, everyone looks back on the previous year, we pick which holiday parties we are going to, and I gain 10 pounds.

It’s the Christmas cookies.  I am a cookie monster from my early childhood, and Christmas cookies are the best!  And the pie.  Can’t forget the pie.  Oh, and eggnog lattes at Starbucks.  With a pumpkin scone, ‘natch!  December is a time when I spend too much, eat too much, and when January rolls around I always face the consequences of my high credit card bill and tight clothes.

Each year it is the same.  Except for this one thing:  this year I have a sweetheart.  It will be my first Christmas with my honey.  Since he calls himself an atheist and was raised Jewish the whole Christmas thing is almost nulled, but still — we will be together during “The Holidays” – that all important time of the year.  We sailed easily through Thanksgiving and I have no doubt Christmas will be the same.

‘Tis the season.  And this season, I will have a very special someone to be with.  And for that I’m thankful.
