Shining Moments

Do you ever feel like you’re just spinning your wheels

   and not getting anywhere?

Like a gerbil on his wheel

  round and round and round

  weary from the running

  but

  realizing that you’ve never moved.

Life can have its moments

 but

it’s up to us to plan for success.

The Christmas season can have it’s challenges

   but it’s up to us

   to look ahead and prepare for them.

A prudent man foresees danger and takes precautions.

The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. Prov. 22:3

Listen to the cries of the overworked single mom

  struggling to care for her children.

The holiday season can very well push her over the edge.

Pay attention to the lonely

  who go day after day thinking that no one cares.

This time of year can be excruciating for them.

Notice the families struggling to add one more activity

  on top of the pile

  risking it all tumbling down

  along with intense conflict and turmoil.

We can stay on the path of peace by foreseeing the potential problems

    and taking precautions now.

Choose life.

Choose peace.

Choose a Christmas that will linger in your memory for years to come.

Take steps now to do less and enjoy it more.

We don’t have to do it all.

No, choose the other path.

And begin to discover life the way it is meant to be.

Calmer.

   Peaceful.

      Meaningful.

         Touching hearts

              One person at a time.

Yes, look ahead now.

Plan for success by choosing wisely today.

May this Christmas be one filled with the wonder of His Presence and Power.

It can only be so as we decrease the craziness and increase the meaningful.

He leads us beside the still waters.

Are you letting Him lead you today?

You’ll never regret it for His steps lead to life everlasting.
