Christmas is my most favored Holiday of the year! This year and last year have been met with difficult times. They weren’t the only difficult Christmases we had. But we had a nice time. God is good!!
I often ask why the most sever issues in life come around during holidays? The answer I came up with is there is to much pressure to make the Holidays perfect. So please sit back, and enjoy the precious time you get with your love ones, if possible. and don’t fret the little mistakes. The badly wrapped gifts, the gifts you forgot to mail, the cooked meals. If you are alone then do something for yourself, make the day memorable, and enjoy it!! Everyone- Enjoy the little moments.
Every day is a precious gift given to us. Don’t let let depression, loneliness, or fear, keep you from finding the little joys in life. Dont wast anger and stress over things that shouldn’t matter bit focus on what does matter. Make the most out of what you are given and have and appreciate those and what you have in your life because you never know what tomorrow will bring.
The best gift you can give is Love and Support to one another. We are all waiting for someone or something. Don’t give up if it’s what your really want. Waiting is hard but while we wait we grow and learn new things about ourselves and our life around us. When the time comes and we achieve the goal at hand. It is better than ever imagine.
God bless you today and Always!

Hello My Dear Readers,
Life is so precious, and so many people go through each day taking it for granted. They miss the simplicity and beauty of everyday things like a cool breeze blowing past; the sun and moon rising and setting; the endless blanket of stars, shimmering in the dark sky; the unique variety, charm and even humor in all the creatures, plants, and bugs; the collage of colors all around us: in the earth, and in art. Let us not forget the poetic beauty of people. We all have wants, dreams, goals, fears, insecurities, good qualities and bad …At times we all fail to stop and enjoy every sweet moment life presents us, we get so caught up in worries and needs, we forget what we have, or received… We can easily forget what is really important. It’s those moments that make life worth living…If you are blessed with people in your life that you care about; make time for them, tell them how much you love them. Time is limited! There is always stuff going on, always something that has to be done…Reasons to be sad, or upset….Don’t wait for the perfect time, a clean house, etc… You don’t know what tomorrow may bring. Good or bad, one should try and make the most of every day! Every chance they get to share time or things with the ones they love….. Bad things happen, we are not unbreakable, people move, and pass on to heaven or hell. I don’t mean to be morbid and a lot of people don’t think about the possibility of no tomorrow, or no more life with that person or people we cherish… Life can change suddenly; are you happy with your current choices? Don’t live in the past or dwell on things you can’t change…. Look to the future and aspire to make the most out of what you have…. You may not know me, or what I have gone though, that is ok… You don’t need to in order to understand what I am saying… I’ve been through hell and back, and I wouldn’t wish that on any one… So please learn from me. Don’t live without joy… When you wake up, be glad you woke up! Be glad you have a new day with new opportunities, new chances… Take time to think things over before doing them…. “Is that persons bad attitude worth upsetting my good mood”, “will I regret doing or not doing this?”, “will this make them happy or mad”, “will this help or make things worse”, Get the picture? It is a lot easier said than done, but choose not to waste a minute of your life. It is good to relax and have fun, it’s important to your health to do your best not stress… I know how important it is to embrace life… Everything can change in the blink of an eye… Don’t fret the little things, but look for the light shining through the rain cloud instead.
I have met so many people who have been very sad lately, and some very good reasons to be… But don’t let your sadness cloud your life, and don’t let it steal your joy…. Do not let yourself get lost in a hole of disrepair, hate, resentment, or anger… You are such a special person and are such a blessing to this world…. I pray you find your purpose, your joy and take time to smell the roses…. Because life is such a gift, such a blessing that so many people don’t get the pleasure of living…. Life is the ultimate adventure, the ultimate challenge!!!
I challenge you to make the most of your life, not for me but for yourself… I wish you find joy with living even though life can be complicated and very rough…..
God bless you abundantly!!! ~John 10:10
