Merry Christmas!

 
Happy Christmas Day! Things may or may not be the way you want them to be today; you may or may not receive the gifts that you want; you may or may not be in the situation/health/emotional state that you want to be; you may or may not have the life that you desire this Christmas, but today is a day of gratitude, a day in which we ponder and give thanks for the miracle of that first Christmas....and for the MIRACLE that can and will happen for you this Christmas and in the New Year.

Like that first Christmas, however, it took cooperation between Mary, Joseph, and God to bring forth the new life that changed our world. You too, must be willing to cooperate....to put yourself in 'uncomfortable" situations....to say YES to all that God has waiting for you....to be willing to go "wherever" He leads and endure the sacrifices and hardships that will come with your journey, so that YOU TOO will celebrate and rejoice in the Christmas Miracle of a new, healthier and happier life that God has waiting for you. It may take months...or years for you to realize it and see the results....but I encourage you today to BELIEVE that All things are possible with GOD, and that you, too, can have a new life of great joy and peace. Do what you need to do to get through the day, but sometime today, find some time to ponder and give thanks for the miracle that God has already begun in your life. BELIEVE in it....TRUST in it...Say YES to it....and be willing to do what you need to do in the new year to make it happen!

Have a peaceful.....joyful...healthy and blessed Christmas Day!
