He is with us

Why does Christmas have to end? I rather liked this day. It began with a wonderful phone call from the East Coast. It ends with me only being glad that Christmas ends so I can go home to the East Coast. I love my life. I feel sober. I felt sober all day. I didn’t even care that everyone around me was drinking, not that that is really one of my big issues. I still felt sober.

I had very pleasant quiet time with God this morning. I couldn’t convince myself to turn on a movie. I did listen to some delightful Christmas carols. I am still trying to convince myself to take off my Santa hat. What if I want to keep it on? Anyway, back to my quiet time. It was so good to reflect on how much God has changed me in this year. This year I feel a bit like I am actually following Him. Like I have dropped a lot of religion. Like my relationship is more important than any doctrine I might believe or theology I might think I believe.

I did need the grace of God today to survive the multitude of entirely different opinions that temporal families have. I also stood up for myself a time or two. Unusual to say the least.

Yes, vacation is good. The new year will be awesome! Because He is with us.

“I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.” – John 15:15
