I was fortunate to have my children with me last night and this morning. They have grown into amazing adults. They have supported me, encouraged me and just lifted me up, during this past year. I am so proud of them and thankful to God for blessing me with their giving spirits.
As I sit atop this beautiful mountain surrounded by God’s beauty I realize this is my gift from God. He has given me the ability to see the small things around me; to appreciate the smells of the desert floor, the shiny ebony feathers of the hawk that flies overhead, the crispness in the air, being by myself, but not feeling alone. I am up on this mountain because I enjoy the challenge of getting here. Just as in life the journey isn’t always easy but when you get to the top, it’s often times more than you hoped for. Keep trusting in the Lord.
This has been a year of growth and empowerment for me; a year of wonder and dreams. I have much to be thankful for as I look forward to the new year. Keep looking up, and up, and up… it’s amazing what you will see!
When Jesus came to earth, He brought with Him everything you and I need to be empowered to live a life of victory. He came as a baby. We celebrate today the birth of this wonderous joy named Jesus.
Merry Christmas to you all!
