While enjoying the ‘jolly’ season, it would be wise not to throw all caution to the wind. Shopping can be crazy but remember to watch your spending. Merchants can be very enticing with their special offers at this time, both in the shops and on line stores. It’s good to have a list and follow it as strictly as possible. No spontaneous purchases! In fact, as much as possible, stay away from the shops once you finish your legal (list-based) shopping. That way, you can at least try to resist some temptations.
So, joy to the world, the Lord is come! We rejoice always, regardless of our situation or circumstances. We rejoice because the Lord has come to give us salvation, healing, deliverance, a reason to live. We rejoice because weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
So, here I am, at the same point again, looking forward to another new year of better things! How great is our God and how wonderful are His works!!! Like the Bible says, from the rising of the sun, to the going down of the same, the name of the Lord shall be praised.
I am also a fan of stating the obvious, as you may have noticed. There are a lot of things that we know about life, that we do not realise we know, until someone points them out to us.
