It Could Happen! 12/23/22

Greetings, I just came in from snow blowing driveways and the snow is coming down and it is a bit windy.  You know, we haven’t had a snow at Christmas time like this in several years. But just know, where I live, we have had much more snow than this “blizzard” and we may be going back into that colder cycle like we have every few years which should give us some more cold and snow. I enjoy it! Sledding and ice skating and snow shooing and cross-country and downhill skiing and on and on, it does make for a lot of fun and good exercise outside.

At Christmas this year, right now, it could happen that people would take a deep breath, celebrate and enjoy the JOY of this wonderful time of the year…What is wonderful about it is that for those of us who have sold our lives out to the One we call JESUS; we can see and feel the JOY of this time of year; yes, we can! All of us can remember when one Christmas or another was not all we wanted.  But the Truth is, our God (JESUS) has never changed, so it must be us that changed or the situations in our lives changed, He didn’t. If we get close to Him today, we will find help, solace in what may otherwise be a difficult time. It could happen, if you desire it.

I wrote this short blog, not talking about my consulting business and what I do in that regard and how I love to serve people and help them fulfill their dreams and visions, I have not done that though good business practice and marketing would say I should. Instead, I have decided to share with you the answer for life, that is right in front of all of us. The answer is Christmas. Being able to celebrate someone bigger than you and your problems and challenges. There was a time when my life was a mess. I wrote in my book about all of this. If you would like to have a free copy of my book: Pickin Up the Pieces of Your Life: “it is never too early, it is never too late” just let me know via the form on my website Include your mailing address and I will be glad to send a free copy to you. I have 10 to give away.

I remember the first Christmas after I had let the King of Kings into my life. My wife and I had a severely disabled child, I was out of work and life was challenging, but my new life in Christ made all the difference in the world. I just wanted to share this with you today. It could happen to you also. Believing in Jesus Christ opens the door to peace and other wonderful things. But it doesn’t stop there. I would like to hear about your experience with Him. Remember: believing/trusting in Him and turning away from your old life is just the beginning. It could happen, to you, it did to me!!
