It is easy to jump into something when you know the outcome... but what if the future is a bit... hazy... unclear... uncertain? Making changes is never easy. Making life changes is plain terrifying.
As I am standing at the edge of my life as I know it looking onto the other side is not easy. How will everything work out? What if something goes wrong? What if it is not how I imagined it?
(a quick glance back)... maybe I should not attempt this?.. maybe I should get back to the life I know?.. At the very least I know what to expect from my life...
(a quick glance forward)... but how will I ever know? What if the other side is not terrifying at all? What if it is indeed as I had imagined? What if crossing over will truly help me make my dreams come true?
I wonder what is worse - the fear of the unknown that fills your heart at the first step?.. or the ever-increasing fear that you had missed your chance?

Once again it is December and we're approaching Christmas.
In the hassle of shopping and looking for that perfect gift for someone - be reminded today that you can bring joy not only to your family and friends but also to those who so desperately need it.
I found this song by Matthew West and Amy Grant on Bryan's Pandora station and I loved the message of the song. Please take a moment to watch it.
This Christmas let's be intentional in our faith and in our giving. Ask yourself what can you and your family do to make this Christmas meaningful?
Sponsor a missionary?
Bake cookies, make hot cocoa and find some homeless people to share them with?
Volunteer at a local soup kitchen?
Share Christmas by inviting someone over who would otherwise be lonely?
Whatever you choose to do - do not get so caught up in decorating, baking, and shopping that you miss an opportunity to share hope... bring life... be the light... show the world how different Christmas really is.
