Christmas is upon us so that means a New Year is just around the corner. It’s that time of year when we take time to appreciate those around us, family and friends. I can’t help but think about the families this year who have lost loved ones, especially those in Connecticut. This Christmas is going to be unbelievably hard for them and I just can’t even imagine how hard.
As this year ends and a new one begins there is a sense of hope in me. I am a Christian and I don’t know how people deal with what life can throw at us without knowing Jesus. When I put my life in His hands 18 years ago He transformed me, one day at a time. I am a better person, not a perfect person, just a better person. I’m still a work in progress. Having Jesus in my life has given me a hope I’ve not known before. I always use to be a “but what if” person . . . now I’m a “whatever” person because no matter what happens I don’t walk this path alone.
Jesus says, “I will never leave you or forsake you” and I believe it. He has shown me in all of my circumstances especially the tougher times that He is there for me. As we celebrate Christmas and the New Year, my hope would be that if you don’t know Jesus that you would get to know Him. Life can be hard sometimes but you don’t have to walk it alone. Thank you all for following my blog this past year and for your fun & encouraging comments! I pray that this season brings you peace and joy.
Merry Christmas & a Very Happy New Year!
