merry christmas


merry christmas, lovelies.

i hope your holidays season has been merry and bright.  i’m sorry that i have been missing from this space.  i hadn’t planned to be take such a long blogging break, but sometimes life has plans of its own.  you live life, and sometimes life lives all over you.  maybe in happy, overwhelming, joyful days or heartbreaking, unplanned, unpredictable kind of ways.   wearing you thin or riding the skies.  life lives, days do their doing, and time ticks on.  and, sometimes you find yourself stopping everything that can be stopped, and for me that was blogging.  i’ll be back after the new year.  i’ve missed you all and this space where inspiration flows and words work their way out.

my prayer is that you have the happiest christmas and new year.  a christmas wrapped up love.  the unconditional love that this very heaven sent holiday is all about.  if you have family hold them close and give thanks.  and, if you find yourself alone or missing ones that you still feel should be by your side, then i pray that you would rest in a heavenly love.  a love so strong that even death cannot separate.  love that says i chose you.  i choose you.  i picked you.  i’ve adopted you as my own.  you will never be alone again.  you are the apple of my eye.  your name is engraved on the very palm of my hands.  i love you with an everlasting love.

“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”  Isaiah 9:6

if you need someone to listen or don’t know what to do – Wonderful Counselor

if you lack the love of a father, or never had it at all, you’ll find protection, provision, security, identity, unconditional love – Everlasting Father

if you cannot find rest and you feel very afraid, unsure and unsettled – Prince of Peace

and, may your new year shine and sparkle with hope.  hope for new beginnings.  whatever beginnings you heart is holding out for.  tuck away this last year.  put it to rest, only remembering it’s lessons and it’s light.  let the dark parts fade into the dark winter night and bid it goodbye.  farewell.  adios.  see ya later.  no never again.  let go and live.  live the life you dream of.

i’m believing that your best days are ahead of you, lovelies.  mine too.
