I've been thinking about Christmas. I've been thinking about my adult children coming home. I've been praying that this will be the best Christmas ever because Christmas is such a good time to make some memories that will last for our time on earth. These interactions with each other are what make life worthwhile. They do for me anyway. When I think of our Christmas Celebration tonight in the little town of Dupree, I pray God's presence would be there. I pray that people will sense His presence. I pray thoughtful and generous and loving conversations will take place. I pray that all the people who attend will feel loved.
Our church will have a booth there -- just to be a light. Will it make a difference? I don't know. We just can do what we can do and leave all the results to God. Like this post. I'm writing because I wanted to write even though I really don't have much to say. I just know God is so good to us and will sustain us no matter what happens in our lives. Lately, I've realized so much how Jesus is our Counselor. When I have an emotional issue I often feel first not understanding why I am feeling what I'm feeling. And then my Counselor (Jesus) gives me understanding. With understanding can come healing.
