A Rainbow on Christmas Eve

It's Christmas Eve. It's been a rainy, foggy Christmas Eve, just like the song. But there was something unexpected tonight. The sun was setting and it had actually come out after a very rainy day. When I saw the sun was out, I ran to the front door and looked to the east. There it was: a rainbow on Christmas Eve! I couldn't help but think of what the rainbow means to me-the reminder of God's faithful promises. And then it hit me: The ultimate symbol of promise-keeping on the eve of the day we remember God's ultimate promise fulfilled! What an AWESOME God we serve!!!!

It seems like I always start a new post with: "It's been a long time since I blogged...." but it always has. It's not that I don't think of blogging or don't want to, it's just that I so often wonder if I have anything good to say, like that is what a blog is for anyway! So I was sitting here reading Theresa's and Heather's blogs....I could have written both of them. (Heather, Julia did not call for me and sing so was your post previous to that one!) Last night my husband asked me if I was happy with my life. My answer: "Yeah, pretty much." So of course then he asked what I would change. I gave some answers that are totally non-changeable, but as I thought more about it, it hit me: I have this GREAT life! What is my deal?! OK, so I am reading Theresa and Heather's blogs and thinking: I am right there with you my sisters, my FRIENDS. So why do we let each other feel like this when we feel so deeply for each other???? It hurts my heart to know that one of my friends is feeling lonely or insecure. Yet, I am feeling the same. I am going to step out on a limb here and make an early New Year's resolution: to check in with my friends more, maybe ESPECIALLY when I am feeling blah. Hmmmm....that just might kill two birds with one stone!
