Sometimes life throws you curve balls.
You have plans, you think things will be one way, and then BAM!
It is amazing to me just how much can change in a short amount of time.
What I have found is that I just have to roll with the punches.
Take each day as it comes.
Try not to worry. Anxiety and worry gets you no where fast.
The Bible even speaks on this: Philippians 4:6 says, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."
The holiday season can be stressful for some people. Try not to assume that everyone is happy and jolly. Because some aren't. Some people's lives have changed so much in the past year that they aren't handling this season well at all.
Be there for them. Help them when you can.
I hope you are doing well. If you aren't, pray, talk to someone, and get it off your chest. Do not leave things bottled up. It's not healthy for you.
Roll through your day with love, hope, and grace given by the One who loves you the MOST!
