I pray all is well with you and yours. May our loving and glorious God bless you abundantly this Christmas and always. ~+~Sherron~+~ ><> ~+~ <><"For God, who said, 'Let there be light in the darkness,' has made us understand that this light is the brightness of the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. But this percious treasure~this light and power that now shine within us~is held in perishable containers, that is in our weak bodies. So everyone can see that our glorious power is from God and is not our own." 2 Corinthians 4:6~7 ><> ~+~ <>< O dear God, make us a people of concern and deep, deep compassion. There is so much loneliness, so much despair and neglect, so much pain and disappointment in the world today. We see it all around us, Lord. In our neighborhood, our church, in the homes of families and friends. Make us achingly aware. Let us care, let us share. Lord, may we be at least one chord of beautiful music in the heart of a mother, or a father, or a precious child where the longing for harmony lies so deeply hidden. And above all, dear Lord, channel through us Your matchless love for You are the Song we joyfully sing. ><> ~+~ <>< Blessed Lord, through whose gift of the Holy Scriptures we learn of Your mighty saving acts towards man, help us so we can hear, we can remember, and understand Your Holy Word, that strengthens and sustains thereby, we may know in this life the hope of eternity which You have given us in our Savior Jesus Christ, who lives and rules with You and the Holy Spirit now and forever. Amen.

We would never think of stumbling around in a darkened room when we know we can have light by flipping on a light switch. So why would we ever wander in the dark of confusion when we can turn to God for understanding? God is the light of pure understanding that shines within us at all times. If we feel we are in the dark, we need to open the windows of our soul to the light of God. And God immediately fills us with the light of love and pece. At peace, we are open to the creative ideas God has for us. When we act on the divine ideas we receive, we truly are a beacon of God's light in the world. And by letting our light shine, we are letting God bless and encourage others through us. ~+~ ><>+<>< ~+~ May God's light of understanding shine from within you today and always my sweet friend.

Do you know of someone... a friend, loved one, or even a stranger in the pit? The pit of depression or of despair, the pit of alcohol and or drugs, the pit of bad relationships, the pit of finances, the pit of loss...whatever it may be, the pit knows no difference, holds no limits, or has any restirctions. The pit is one of bondage, fear, suffering, loneliness, defeat....it is a place extremely destructive to ones very soul and being.
Whisper....I'm sure as I do...you hear the echos of tears falling and the sounds of pain in the winds. Have you noticed, the more you try and reach for another in this place, the further down one digs? How can we help someone in this place, when our arm and reach have limits?
