Christmas Presence

I was getting edgy. The world’s noise, coupled with the quick changes, created anxiety. For six weeks I attempted to up my patience game. Many changes had been just temporary; a few permanent like this one. So many calls to make, things to do, and I had dear friends to help (thank you!).

Waiting to move-waiting for the R.V. to sell-waiting to decide what was needed; and what was not. Worried about getting gifts bought and mailed off in time-praying for the physical strength to accomplish goals. And mentally, I was just struggling with achieving any balance. And then talking to so many people to make the necessary changes (does anyone else wonder if society has lost the ability to just listen rather than voice opinions or thoughts?).

My Heavenly Father always listens. He only interrupts me when I need it (I’m no longer interrupting him). It’s becoming quieter. And in the quiet I can hear exactly the voice I need to hear-no judgement, criticism, and opinion. Just three days before Christmas I have landed in a space of peaceful existence-my new home.

With incredible happiness, and complete exhaustion, I watched as the R.V. drove away. It was bittersweet. This last week has definitely been a challenge. But dare I utter this when so many have battles? I’m hyperaware of the needs of those around me (and the globe for that matter). I’m thankful for a roof over my head, furniture to sit on, food in the refrigerator, and the list goes on. I started unwrapping in my last post. And I’ve found the most amazing gifts of all.

The Christmas presence I’m holding propels me to want to pay everything forward. I want to shout it from a mountain top. For I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that HE is able. 🎵 And this gift of grace began with the humble birth of our Savior over 2,000 years ago. His presence is the most special gift of all.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” Luke 2: 11-14

To my WP family and friends: I’ve missed you.❤ I’m goal-setting through prayer and excited about a new year (aren’t we all?). To my friend Kate: Yes, I will be making a vision board too. Merry Christmas everyone! May miracles find you. I pray you’re able to spend time with family and friends and that the real reason for your celebration is solidified through the presence of something much greater than us all-the presence of God’s peace, love, and promise. 💚

Have faith ❣

Some of you have asked about my new home and wanted updates. Here you go. ❤
