WHAT CHRISTMAS 2009 MEANS TO ME

Well,  first of all,   I love Christmas Season…the Spirit of Christmas is so exciting! 

I love the tree trimmings,  the holiday parties,  the food,  the family and the fun!

But most  of all the Spirit of Christmas is about Christ.

A friend of mine stated bluntly to me yesterday…Rhonda does not celebrate Christmas.  And Rhonda is a religious person too.

Like,  what does Rhonda and her person life have to do with  me?

That  I do not get. 

I have supreme joy at this time of year.  And not because of the gifts…I do not get gifts….AT ALL!  

I do not have a husband or a boyfriend for 13 years I have been alone as a caregiver to my family ( my mom and son). 

Rhonda is married….so What gives?

I was married once…and my  life was even more filled with Holiday cheer than now!

So what that people do not know when Jesus was born.   I am concerned with his actual death and resurrection on the Cross!

Does anybody know that actual date,  time,  hour,  and month of Jesus actual Cruxifiction?

So what is the problem here?

Christmas is the spirit of   LOVE,  HOPE,  PEACE AND JOY  FOR ALL MAN KIND!

So many homeless people,  shut-in folk would be left alone if it were not for the spirit of GIVING during Christmas.

So there I believe that those RELIGIOUS FOLK who CHOOSE  not to celebrate the HOLIDAY  of Christmas have missed the point of the celebration.

They are concerned that they will be overwhelmed with the spirit of “getting a gift”  and not  the death and resurrection of the born Christ child when he becomes thirty-three years old. 

How can you though?   Really?   Those who receive gifts for love of money,  sex,  drugs,  relationships  and all the selfish motive stuff are those who  Christ came and died for. 

So those of us who believe in the HOPE, OF LOVE,  OF SALVATION….should  realize that we are the ones who hold up the light of  life to the people motivated by selfishness…so that when all of their goals of selfish greed makes them  fall flat on their faces because they did not get that  GUCCI BAG,  or  Mercedes Benz,  or Diamond earrings…they will see us HUMBLE FOLK…holding up a little  heart sign of Christ Love and Salvation…saying…All who are weary come….Come to the Giver of Life….the Little Baby Jesus….who died for all SINS….OF GREED,  SELFISHNESS,  AND HATRED,  AND ALL SUCH THINGS…

I believe that they will see that Christmas more than getting and giving a bunch of expensive or inexpensive material possessions.  Christmas is the spirit of God’s Love come down to a lost,  worn,  and tired collective humankind soul and spirit.

Let us not turn into Scorge as a form of RELIGION!   Jesus turned water into wine at a wedding celebration….Can we love God more than Christ loved God the Father?   Jesus said if you have seen me you have seen the  Father.   So if Christ did not count it as sin to celebrate a wedding  of an unnamed bride and groom….Why not celebrate the birth a little Baby….who was set to take the sins of the world upon himself when he became a man?

Keep Christ in  Christmas,  and take into your heart the true  Spirit of Love,  Peace,  and Joy of the Season.

So that is what Christmas 2009  means to me.

I APOLOGIZE…LORD–and Thank you

Dear Lord,

I am your child…but
I grow frustrated sometimes
when I feel like time goes by too
slowly.
I wish I could stay like a person I know
where I would have constant faith and it
be unshakeable faith.
I get nervous and lonely and scared.
I admit it Lord….I confess my sin.

I have doubt …while others a full of
the VICTORY!

BUT TODAY…I confess I was a bad child!

I was sad and dispondent…I was lonely and
fearfull, I admit to jealousy of other
women that have husbands, mates, and
boyfriends….I admit my sin Lord Jesus!

How many friends do I have? NOne!
So I admit my sin Lord–I admit my sin.

Please Lord, you are mighty and strong…
Show yourself mighty and strong in my heart
and give me your grace and power.

Hallelujah! Thank you Lord Jesus! I could
not make it without you.

Please Lord…grant me forgiveness of my
selfish will, my head strong self
determine. I had no help I thought…and the
help came. I had no love Lord and you
had someone to me proclaim…
your love!~
I had no peace Lord and to me
peace came…
I had no joy Lord and to me
Joy came…
So I apologize Lord…that I allowed to grow
into the cast down feeling.

Yes, I am still alone….and lonely….I feel lost
around young and old couples,

I do feel sad about my losses in life…
but I do have your life, your love..
your peace and your joy.
Thank you Lord…and forgive me again…
Thank your for having patience on me and
on my soul, and saving me from my sins
through Jesus Christ during this Lenten
Season.
Amen! And also thankyou for answering my
prayer about food today…this Saturday.
I remember Lord that I wrote so many
sad and down trodden poems and prose
about not having food to feed my family.
But Lord you had mercy and delivered me and
my family.
Thank you God….Again….your wayward
chile…river of life…AKA MUD OF LIFE
Lisa Miserable…..((((when I am not being
a good servant))))
