"I pray that...Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love." (Ephesians 3:16,17)
Christmas may be over, but Christ's Presence continues to direct my life. I came across the saying, "Don't cry because it's over---smile because it happened." That's the way I feel about Christmas. Thank God, Jesus was born and through His infinite wisdom, He has taught me that no mistake that I have ever made will separate me from His love. Not only that, but His guidance will bring about the best possible outcome to my life.
God is not limited in any way. He knows all things and can do all things. He makes all the clouds pass and gives me -life richer and fairer than I have ever before been able to imagine. I trust Him with my whole heart to handle my life and all my affairs. This gives me total peace. 2010 will be a win-win year for you and for me because our God is in control.
Have a win-win 2010! God bless. This year will be the best ever! Spread the love everywhere you go.
Light and love,

"For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans...to give you a future of hope." (Jeremiah 29:11) Yes, hope is what God gives us. Jimmy Buffet says, "It takes no more time to see the good side of life than it takes to see the bad." This Christmas season, let's receive hope in our hearts. Let's have faith throughout the season that God will continue to fill our lives with joy and gladness. When we look at the lights on our Christmas tree that symbolize the light within our own selves, we're filled with love and peace. We know our future will be bright. We know that our loved ones will be blessed. "And you will have confidence, because there is hope." (Job 11:18). Let's not be distracted from that hope by bad news in the media or the pervasive advertising that tells us what we must have to be satisfied and attractive. Remembering that "Christ in you, the hope of glory" (Colossians 1:27) is the greatest gift we could ever receive, let's savor all the sounds, smells, and sights of Christmas. God bless.
Light and love,
