I wish you all a very merry Christmas, 2020. We all know the holiday season this year is different. Yet, we can all be grateful Providence gave us another Christmas. Burden’s found in tough times are lightened by hearts filled with gratitude. Christmas is, and always has been, about the birth of Christ. I encourage you all, if you have not already, to seek a relationship with Jesus. He came into this awful and fallen world, to give us all the opportunity to be in relationship with the Father. John 3:16.
Look to the past, and you will find footprints of despair. Look at the present, and you will find, all around you, longing and despair. Look to the future, and you will find the fear of despair. But look to God and you will find, in the past, present, and future, hope.
So, this Christmas do more than remember how this season got started, talk with God. I am, of course, talking about prayer. I recommend praying constantly, and with the spirit of complete abandonment.

I hope all of you, no matter how you celebrate the season, know how much God loves you. And thank you for reading my blog. I would love, if you are not already, to follow me. My blog covers writing tips I learn from school and book reviews.
To my followers: School has been over for about a week. I have enjoyed the time off. I started back in January (full-time) and have gone year round. I have completed 12 classes (36 credit hours) this year, and earned 11-A’s and 1 B. I consider this an achievement for two reasons: One, I am thirty-one, and had not been in school for a decade. Two, I have done all this while raising my toddler son. I am a stay-at-home father. God has been good to me, and I am so thankful for each and every one of you whom have been part of this journey. I have one more year of school to go, and then it is off to grad-school. My eye is on an MFA, or Theology degree. I am praying for discernment. The best thing about this year: I am finally myself.
