Here's to Christmas

My oldest daughter just informed me that she doesn't believe that prayer works. That makes me feel sad. Still, that probably makes God, sadder. He longs to be connected with her. It's his way of making things happen and deepening faith. But, I understand how she feels. She's had a rough year. I won't get into details, but everyone is allowed to doubt sometimes. This Christmas pray for your friends and family that need a miracle. Then, prepare to be amazed.

Here’s to Christmas,
Here’s to Christmas,
For the snow
And the Christmas tree.
For gifts to give to friends afar
And friends that live near.
For the twinkling star
That shines so bright
In the long and dark wintry night
And singing songs of cheer
For feasting our eyes
On lights that glow
That will lead us back
To the little child
That came to earth
So long ago.
I’m so glad he came.

I've been struggling with a tough personal relationship, lately. And for the first time in many years, have questioned whether my constant prayers are working... my friend said to me, "imagine what it'd be like WITHOUT your prayers!" How wise....

How beautiful! For what's it's worth, I'm going to pray that you find peace and whatever you need to find closure in this situation...be it strength, forgiveness, wisdom or patience.
I really enjoy reading your blog, I find you thoughtful and enthusiastic about life. I know you're going to make a difference.
