Tis the Season to be Jolly


Tis The Season



Christmas is the time of the year to be spent with family and friends. A time to enjoy each other and have a good time. Sometimes all of the gatherings and shopping can become overwhelming and take the JOY out of the Holiday.

Remember the reason that we celebrate.

Jesus is the reason for the season.Celebration of his birth.

Because he was born were are all entitled to eternal life. St. John 3:16

Here a  few tips tips to help you to take care of yourself and have a better holiday season.
1.Don’t get caught in the hustle and bustle of the season.
2.Do things in moderation.
3.Give yourself permission to Rest and say “NO” to some activities.
4.Take a cat nap.

5.Reflect on the current year to create a better vision for the year ahead.
6. Take care of your body.
7. Focus on one thing or task at a time.

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year!!!

Remember to take time for you and “Treat Your Self” in 2017

Jeremiah 29:11 Hope and ” A Future” God’s desire is not for us to suffer. His thoughts for us are not of harm but of good.

Seek God first and he will give you the desires of your heart. He has already given us the greatest gift of all.

Season, Purpose & Praise| A Message Of Purpose|


Seasons, Purpose and Praise
This is the season to be blessed. We have already received the greatest gift from God which is his Son. Many times we are dealing with things in our lives that we may not fully understand. We may even question God as to why certain things are as they are. Difficult times many come at different times in our lives. We have to know and believe God that our Season will change.

Seasons are defined as
-a part of the year when something in particular happens.


– Season to become mature: to grow fit for use (Webster)


-suitable or convenient time

-a period of time not very long
Per the word Ecclesiastes 3:1- to everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.

 God’s plan and purpose is not to cause harm to for you

Jeremiah 29:11 for I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Purpose- We have to just look for the signs to understand the purpose and know that God has not left you alone. He will not put more on you than you can handle. God has a purpose and a plan for all our lives. I understand that sometimes things happen for distractions and other things happen because it’s a part of the plan to get you where God is trying to take you/ me.
In the natural there are different things that we have to do to prepare for the change.

You may gather different clothes; you may even throw away somethings,

In the, spiritual you have to do the same thing. You have to prepare for the change.

You may be thinking right now that nothing is not changing for me, I been in this place for a long time,

But what are you doing to prepare. You have to make room for the new.

You have to change your attitude.

You have to put on sprit of praise/celebration

This is a time of celebration

Most of the world is preparing for the big Celebration of the birth of Christ. It a process to get ready for Christmas (from cleaning, cooking, decorating…. and we have to live ( fasting, praying, praising) everyday with the expectancy and a praise in our hearts for what is to happen.
Praise : I will bless the Lord at all times: his praises shall continually be in my mouth Psalms 34:1
Don’t let your secret worries keep you from getting to your purpose. You have to live everyday being that God designed a plan for me. It may not look like; it may not even feel like it

But is going to happen; God keep his promises and we just have to grab hold of our faith, be obedient to his world and his will.

Delight yourself in the lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalms 37:4

                             Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year!!!!!

Much Love …..
