My family and I made it through the holidays this year.
After losing, Nana in 2005, my brother in 2010 and my nephew in 2015, Christmas just isn’t the same anymore. It is a day by day thing just to get through it. A lot of prayers to Jesus. A lot of talks to Jesus as a matter of fact.
Tonight is New Years Eve, we are having a family and friends get together tomorrow with all the traditional New Years foods. We will be serving: Turnip Greens, Black-eyed peas, pork roast, turnips and rutabagas, cornbread, iced tea and desert. After that, the holidays are over and the new year can begin. I do look forward to seeing family and friends and not having to exchange gifts etc.
I am also going to church in the morning with my family. I also went before Christmas for the candle light service and to take communion. I have been clinging close to Jesus and plan on continuing it.
Jesus Christ is my Lord and Saviour. My Father in Heaven. My King.
I try to talk to him instead of traditional prayers that he hears all the time.
Do not get me wrong, I still pray. When Peter was walking on water towards Jesus, he began to sink, he didn’t say a prayer to stop him from sinking. He screamed out, Jesus! Help me! I’m sinking! I try to take this approach at this point in my life.
