While the picture is not clear and lacks definition, the meaning is clear. There are gifts galore amidst a less than perfect tree. I too am less than perfect. There is a little village like Bethlehem town and a manger too where shepherds gathered round.
The last two years have been tough on all of us. While some are without jobs and some have lost loved ones, I feel particularly grateful.
My heart goes out to the families that have had a loss. Also to the families hit by the tornadoes while your loss may be great, you are still here.
While the evil in this country tries to tear us apart we will now and forever stand firm in our faith. As we get ready to celebrate with family and friends I hope you really enjoy each and every moment as time is so precious.
Despite the covid threats, don’t be afraid to be with loved ones. The time you spend with them is more important than the virus you may or may not spread. It is time to stop living in the “what if” and start living in the “right now”. The moments you lose cannot be replaced.
I wish you all joy and much happiness now and throughout the new year. Thank you all for following my blog this year and hope you continue into the next.
May God richly bless you and keep you safe.
