Taking a Break For the Holidays

it’s that crazy time of year again, only I have (finally) learned at this stage of my life how to avoid the craziness. For imagethe past several years, I have taken off most of the month of December so that I can take time to pray and look back on the year. I spend time asking the Lord if there are changes I need to make in my life, family, ministry, and seeking Him for new direction, vision, strategies, and wisdom as I prepare for the New Year. This is the first December since I began blogging, so I felt led to also take a break for the remainder of this month.

My prayer for each of you is that you will discover, for the first time, or in a greater way, the love of Jesus during this season.  For those who will be missing loved ones, I pray His love and peace would comfort and sustain you. For those who will be alone, I pray His presence would be very real and tangible to you. He is always with you! For those who will be with family or friends that are difficult, I pray His grace would enable you to love them with His love. And for those who enjoy their family or friends, I pray your joy will be full to overflowing, touching those beyond your circle. May we each count our many blessings, for there is always reason to give thanks to Him!
