It’s almost Christmas and I am super exicted, yes I’m the kinda person who put up my Christmas tree right after dinner on Thanksgiving day, watch all the corny cute puppy talking christmas movies .
Aside from the lights, the food, the music, the presents the main reasons why I love Christmas are: It’s Jesus birthday of course and it’s the end of the year, and the prospect of starting something new.
Everywhere you turn it, Christmas has HOPE written all over it, I love the idea of closing this chapter and starting anew. The past 2 years must have been the hardest times of my life, my marriage went up in flame, I lost my job, had to take up an 1 hour and a half commute, watch my babies suffer the aftermath of my broken home *deep breath* for lack of better words let’s just say it’s been hard but I love this line in Eclesiates that says
“this too shall pass”!
No matter how crappy the highlights of the year has been, looking back I can still say I’m blessed, highly favored and I will rejoice!
God has provided more than I could ever ask, in the midst of everybody losing their jobs I got a better one, in the midst of everybody piling on debt I got out of debt, in the midst of brokenheartedness God gave me JOY and Peace, in the midst of it all God’s perfect Christmas present keeps on giving.
The hope that the birth of Christ brings is a cause to REJOICE!
I love what Christmas symbolised, I love the ending of the year and the HOPE of a new and better one.
No matter how your year went…
Today I invite you to REJOICE just because it’s Christmas!
