life as it is seen from my heart and soul

December soon!

and with December comes expectations. I have tried over the last several years to decrease my expectations. I just want all 3 children home for a meal at the same time. It doesn’t even have to be on Christmass Day… but this year it will because of the being on a Sunday. To hug them, hold them, open presents, watch a movie, eat too much food, see them. The blessing of my family, it overwhelms me sometimes.
there is also life… of friends with cancer, friends with no jobs, friends with spouses acting crazy, the normal humdrum of job and bills and laundry and winter setting in. of the potential of danger, the world changing, of people being disrespectful. Questions with no answers.
But there is God. the One that gave His Son, the tiny babe in the cradle on Christmass day. The Son that lived and worked and died and rose again. Christ, the One Saviour, that gave us the Holy Spirit. God, the Father; God the Son; God the Holy Spirit. Moving around us, Breathing into us, Holding us up. God.
