What to Do In Uncertain Times

As we begin a new year and a new decade, we see uncertainty in our world, our nation, and even in our families.

Lord, are we safe? Will we have enough money? What if one of us gets sick and needs extended care? I don’t know what to do, God.

49 Years of Blessings

From the beginning of creation, “God made them male and female. Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” Mark 10:6-9

Wave after wave of blessings have crested, crashed, and rippled into our lives. With each new wave, we come closer to each other, moving in greater strength and love as one. Your steadfast love and care in the good times and in the troubled times have made all the difference. God has truly joined us together, and no one can separate us.

You are my thundering wave of strength, my deep water wave of hope, my ever-swirling wave of joy, and my unceasingly surging wave of love.

Thank you for 49 years of bountiful blessings that have united us forever.

I love you from the depths of my being. I am yours for all eternity,
Your Beloved

The Light Shines in the Darkness – Merry Christmas!

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1:1-5

May the lights and colors of Christmas fill you with reverent wonder as Jesus shines on you.

A Time for Hope

Unfortunately, some people have taken the focus off of Christmas and God’s great gift to the world. Instead of pointing people to the amazing love of God, our eyes and ears are fixed upon the sins of the world. Instead of focusing on hope, the articles direct readers and the media towards what is wrong in America. There is a time for that. This is not the time. This is the time to offer more than what this world has to give.

The Christmas season is a time to encourage men and women to consider the love that caused Jesus to shed His glory that He enjoyed in heaven to enter the world through the womb of a peasant girl.
