Merry Christmas, everybody!
I have been so terribly preoccupied with far too many worldly concerns the last several months. So much has been going on for my daughter and I, some good and some not so good. We’ve been getting through it though, thank the good Lord.
Our health insurance went up about $150 a month, but we are so grateful to be able to renew our wonderful platinum Humana HMO coverage that we could dance for joy! God is so good!
I found out that I have gallbladder disease, but no problem! I was covered for the ER and the ambulance. The new necessary change of diet will help me lose weight, so again, I thank God for the blessing despite the cloud! There is always a silver lining when God is running the show of my life.
Lots of interesting new people have been popping into our lives; there is never a dull moment here. It’s a very small world, I’m learning, especially when I meet new people who already know the people I know, purely by chance!
We are considering a night down on the riverwalk to enjoy the lights, (see above). We may try to do it closer to New Years! So many fun and exciting possibilities. My business has been doing pretty decent, and my teenage daughter is growing up into a beautiful young woman. My only brother and I have been close lately, despite some troubles he has been dealing with.
I am learning a lot about God that I had not expected. Most of it doesn’t coincide with organized religion at all. There are times that I’m shocked by what I’m seeing and learning, especially by how simple and uncomplicated it all is. God is going to be quite the surprise for some, I believe. Anyway, despite the terrific troubles always appearing on the world stage, I see a lot of good going on around me when I least expect it.
Jesus Christ is God’s heart exposed for the world to see. His birth is the proof of how much God truly loves all of us. We celebrate Christmas in honor of Christ’s birth, and there is a kind of magic that surrounds this special holiday; it’s my most favorite of all of them. I so appreciate everything God has blessed me with. I hope and pray that all of you are being greatly blessed in your lives, and that these holidays are bringing you happiness despite your personal challenges. Have a merry Christmas & a happy new year! May God bless and keep you.
