Are you ready for the holidays?

Thanksgiving is 2 weeks away and Christmas is right after that! Help! What happened to this year? Seems like it has gone by so quickly! Sometime during the holidays, stop and think about some of the things that have happened. Was there a wedding or a birth in your family? A child go off to kindergarten....or college? The death of a loved one? Many of us have had major events. How did you get through it? Did you cling to Jesus? Did you get mad at God? How did you cope? Proverbs 3:5 comes to mind right away: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." We don't have to understand everything that comes our way, trust in Jesus and He will carry you through. Easy? Ha! Not always. Worth it? Absolutely!
