- What does *Being Real* mean to you
- What does it really mean to *be real*?
- And in all of it, what is it that you are really *real* about?
Well the new year is on it's way for me and my family. My baby boy (although not a baby anymore) has a birthday coming up this month. His birthday begins the birthday cycle in our family. From here on out just about every month someone in our family will be celebrating a birthday; from immediate family to extended family. (Just thinking out loud.)
Here I am entering the year 2015...Ooooh!
I've been through a lot this year as an individual, a wife, a mother and a grandmother. A lot of changes, life adjustments, some soul searching, some learning and some growing. And for my DH, the same. He too has been learning and growing as well (an endeavor we've been doing and going through together).
Well as we close the year 2014 it is with grateful and joyful hearts we look forward to the future that is held for us in this New Year, the year 2015. Our family has overcome a lot this year and we have struggled and strived to make it. The more we fought to move forward the more we had to fight (if you can understand that).
As I sit here reflecting on the days ahead to Christmas and the new year, I am reminded of Jesus coming as the Prince of Peace.
Things have been really stressful and frustrating this entire year. Last year the place we moved into was not suitable to call home. The only thing we could do is figure out how to get out as soon as possible. And so we did, in time for Christmas once again. So, we are still not settled in yet and so another Christmas of being unsettled. However, this Christmas we are in a better place; a place to call home.
