73 degrees in NJ on Christmas Eve…Nice!

christmas tree

It is not bad this week, mostly 60’s, but so warm on Christmas Eve. Maybe I can shed this gloom by then. It  just might melt the ice in my heart. I need to forget the commercial part and just remember the reason for the season. Jesus’ birth.

My children don’t understand my sudden return to God and religion. They were not brought up on it and I feel bad for not having them indoctrinated into the life of Christ. The grandchildren are interested now, but as they grow up and mommy and daddy don’t go they just might get the feelings I did when I grew up. YOU CAN’T MAKE ME GO! I AM AN ADULT NOW!

It would be nice if next year I don’t feel the gloom and doom. That I look forward to celebrating Jesus’ birth. I would like to shed the early Grinch and Scrooge and become the Happy Endings!

    Jesus is the best medicine. With all the theology people forget the ministry of Jesus as healer. Father and I will attend the Christmas Eve service at Faith Presbyterian at 4:30 PM here in Greensboro. It will be in mid 70’s here in the day time. What part of Jersey ? We are Staten Islanders but I came to Miami with parents when I was 5 years old. The are more Mets fans in the stadium than Marlins fans for baseball. Merry Christmas.

      Jonathan, I am searching my heart for that peace and happiness. I thought the quote above fit my situation very well. I am going to take some time and start reading. I got 2 new devotions books and I ordered a bible. I tossed mine years ago. Now there is a bible in here that was given to my grandmother after death from the funeral home. It has a beautiful wood box and it was given to me as the granddaughter named after her.. I haven’t found it so I ordered a new one. I also ordered one for my kindle and the kindle died on me so I can read it on the pc screen, but I want it in my hand to connect.

      Merry Christmas to you and your family. Hugs and love to all. ❤

    Wow it has been warm here in New Jersey. Most years I remember snow by now. But I am not looking forward to the anxiety of having to add extra time to dig the car out or the anxiety of driving in the icy weather.

    You are right that this is supposed to be a celebration of the birth of Jesus. Even when we believe that , it is hard to focus on because there is so much commercial hype everywhere you go and every time you turn around.

    And at least in my part of Jersey ( north jersey near NY) , the people get more stressed and get impatient and nasty more than usual

    . Parking in Shop Rite I felt like I was taking my life in my hands tonight. Then when I had to walk across the parking lot it was terrible with people beeping and yelling.

    I want to stay in bed for christmas truthfully…
