There are only a few days left until Christmas 2010. I hope that as you look forward to next year, you will have optimism and peace. I hope that as you look backward, you will see the good times and have joy; as you see the bad times may you see them for what they are - times of learning.
Sometimes I think that my life is so stressed that I have no more room for the bad times. In reality, though, I know that God is in control and that He will allow only that which I need in order to learn the lessons at hand. Thank you, LORD, for the lessons.
Merry Christmas everyone. I will likely not be on the computer too much in the next few days as I will be visiting family. I'll be back to approve comments and visit again soon.
