Christmas Eve and 3 Points of Self Care

Today is Christmas Eve.

Today where I live we’re supposed to receive snow. I enjoy a good snow. However, today it is grey and overcast. Sad looking!

I am making myself rest making no major decisions. My whole being is tired and drained.

I find myself traveling from one point to the other in our home. From organizing in my office to decluttering the kitchen and living room to putting laundry away.

I am so very thankful my beloved husband is home on vacation. It is so safe feeling having him here.

My grief is still fresh and real and palpating throughout my being.

I miss my daddy!

This next Tuesday we’ll lay him in his final resting place. I’d so hoped to have the Honor Guard attending but no, these lockdowns won’t allow that!

I’ve been reading a book pertaining to grieving for ones parent. I’m not sure if I’m on track or not. I do have several close friends I check in with who keep me on track.

Time. Time is supposed to heal all wounds. I chose to repeatedly take my pain to Jesus. He understands very well!

I greatly miss our son and his family. They live 700 miles away so we wont spend Christmas together this year! Hurts my heart!

This Christmas I chose to be kind to me. My beloved and I are talking and watching movies. Right now we’re watching The Lord of the Rings movies. We’re making plans and goals for 2021 with our publishing company as well as our ministry. Plans are good.

I chose on purpose to focus on the positive.

3 Points of Positives

1. God is my Poppa; Jesus is my Lord and Holy Spirit is my Comforter

2. This is only a season. It did not come to stay. I will adjust my sails and move forward!

3. Self care is vital. Much like when an oxygen mask falls in a descending airplane, we individually must practice self care to be able to care for others.

I pray your Christmas Eve is a Happy and contended one.

I pray you have much peace!
