I wish I could do better – to not need to go through an emotional rollercoaster every time I have some sort of disappointment or setback. I wish I could just automatically engage full throttle “faith-mode” and be content with whatever my current reality may be at the time.
But that’s not really how it goes in Debi’s world. Not at all.
I’m re-sharing a post today that is near and dear to my heart … and more true every year. I personally need reminding over and over again. And by looking at the people out in the world around me, I have a feeling I’m not the only one. So I’m sending this one out again in hopes that it’ll help lift you somehow, as it did me today when it reminded me EXACTLY why I need that baby we’re celebrating right now. He’s not through growing me. Thank you, Jesus. Just thank you. ❤
Claw marks on the Merry Christmas Highway.

How true, Debi! There are definitely claw marks on my road this past year, from everything from mask mandates to 7:00 AM panic calls from my daughter as she has been hit with yet another explosion of senility and poop from my dad. There are constant demands on my time, money and strength, and, as I told Tom after one particularly horrid day, I don’t think I’m even earning points in heaven for all this, because I complain about it too much!
So, keep preaching, sister! We need to hear it.

Thanks so much for reading, Brenda! I’m so thankful that the post spoke to you, but I’m sorry for all the stressors that are needling at your peace right now. I’m going to be praying for you and your family – not only for the strength to face these difficult days, but also the assurance that you’re not doing it alone (Deuteronomy 33:25). ❤️
