I want to interrupt the Blogmas festivities for a short, serious note:
It is difficult to keep up the “Christmas Cheer” when so many people are mourning the loss of loved ones. My heart breaks every time tragedy strikes in other states and countries. I cannot even describe how it feels to find out about violence occurring not only in my state but in my county. One of the biggest struggles in my life is fear; if I didn’t pray and ask for help, fear would run my life. Non-believers may think prayer is a waste of time, but I beg to differ. I have cried and screamed at God, cursing Him because I felt abandoned. Time after time, He helped me overcome hardship and survive the deepest, darkest, lowest points of my life. I hated Him, and yet He was still there, giving me a reason to trust. Prayers don’t have to be poetic and full of adoration. Cry, scream, do what you need to do to release built-up emotions. God just wants you to talk to Him.
“Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
Tiffany, I grew up watching you on “Sonny With a Chance.” You have always been a sweet, genuine person. I am deeply sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers. <3
If you feel lead to give and are able, any amount would be a blessing to Tiffany and her two little boys.
