May Your Christmas Be Joyous
"Merry Christmas" "Happy Holidays" No matter what term you use, the purpose is to offer a joyous proclamation to the recipient.
For some, the season brings excitement and laughter while others shed tears.
In my own family, we have an unexpected death leaving behind a young widow and 2 children. Their Christmas is not joyous.
I know of families that are suffering from lack of communication, from broken love and distrust that see the holiday gatherings with conflicting emotions.
The volume on the voices of the negative self-talk rises during this season for me. "You aren't doing enough." "That gift is so stupid." "No one really wants you at their holiday event, they are just inviting you because they have to." STOP!! No more! I am not listening.
I put on my plastic tiara and remind myself "I am a princess. I am a child of the King of Kings." If you don't know about my tiara, check out this short youtube video I made where I explain how the plastic tiara works - CLICK HERE.
You are a child of the King of Kings. He offers hope.
I pray you feel His love and hope during this holiday season. May your day be merry and bright, one moment at a time.
