I love Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery. Fall and spring…more like Spring and October’s are my favorite seasons. We are kindred spirits, I think.
Choices are difficult. You never know if you made the right decision until it is done.
Simple choices of what to eat for dinner, isn’t as much a suffering from the consequence, as is changing jobs. Weighing out the pro’s and con’s is always advisable, but regardless of the choice, you have the consequence.
Making changes….and staying the same.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
Blessings! And Merry Christmas! 🎄🎁
Most of the time I don’t consider myself very strong. I find that I doubt myself. Just going along saying yes, of course, why not, even when I don’t want to. Mainly because I feel obligated out of years of friendship. Yesterday I said no. Yesterday I said my feelings were hurt.
Seasons have changed, life has changed, and we have grown. Our children aren’t friends as much as we both would love to say that they are. We care for one another, and will forever love one another. Neither one of us wants to hurt the other, but in doing that have caused more hurt it seems.
Hurt. Growth. Strength. I am hurt. I have grown. I have strength. I have changed.
I can honestly say that I am truly grateful for my forever friends, and for those who are just here for a season.
Warm someone’s heart today.
