Since it is now less than two weeks until Christmas,
I want to extend my wishes to all who read this blog.
This past year,or more correctly the past few months have been some of the most difficult I have ever had.
I have had to say good-bye to the dearest one on earth to me.
I know that Jake is now eternally rejoicing,but my home is empty and my heart is broken.
In spite of all this I can still say that God has been and still is good to me.
The friendships that I have found and the support of people both near and far is,to say the least,overwhelming.
My Christmas will be very different from any in the past.
Before Christmas,on the 19th,would have been Jake's birthday,and that may be a difficult day.
I trust that as God has led me thus far He will continue to give strength for each moment.
I wish for each of you a Christmas filled with joy and a time of making memories that last a lifetime.
Thought for today:
God doesn't give us what we can handle.
He helps us handle what we are given.
