Happy New Year! Enjoy the Journey!

Happy New Year,

The first day of the new year marks the end of the Christmas Holiday season. Our concerns turn to the cares of the routines of our lives. Many are preparing to go to work the next day. Suddenly, the festivities of the season begin to distance itself behind us. We embark on another fresh canvass of 365 days.

Many have written resolutions in hopes that a new year will provide a fresh perspective. In many instances, it does. A new year is a continuation of your journey. It would be great if everything suddenly changed at the stroke of midnight, but that isn’t the case. True transformation only takes place in our daily journey. Resolutions only bring transformation when we are committed to the daily routine of our journey. If there is no commitment to the transformative power of our daily routine, the resolutions will remain on that paper until the next year.

The journey of a year is that you are moving every day in a mindset to achieve success. It doesn’t matter the magnitude of the success, as along as you have a success mentality that propels you through the year. It’s a journey. The success of the journey begins and ends with your commitment to enjoying all the nuances that the journey entails—the good, the bad and the indifferent.

What you have to know is that each day and each experience is making 2019’s journey a success. With every day and experience, you are growing in so many ways. Your faith is increasing. Your confidence is bolstered. Your relationships are strengthened. Every aspect of your life experiences a metamorphosis of success in the journey.

Enjoy the journey! You’re on a path to achieve illimitable success in 2019!

Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas! Enduring Christmas Joy!

Greetings,

Today is Christmas once again, according to the calendar. On December 25th, we celebrate Christmas, virtually all around the world. We gather with family and friends to spend a joyous holiday eating, laughing and just enjoying each other’s company.

Then, the joyous festivities come to an end. Before we know it, we are back into the humdrum of life. The hectic schedules, the rudiments of work with its demanding deadlines and responsibilities, not to mention our commitments to family and friends. We find ourselves right back trying to juggle our demanding schedules. Somehow, the joy of Christmas becomes a blur as the days distant themselves from December 25th.

The joy associated with Christmas can be experienced every day throughout the year. It is an intense feeling that transcends happiness. It is rooted in longing and nurturing a relationship with Jesus. At Christmas we steal away from our frenetic lifestyles to celebrate the birth of Jesus. His birth represents communion with Him. We emulate God when He unselfishly gave His only begotten son by spreading love and joy and giving of gifts. During this time, we give unselfishly of ourselves with presents and the ultimate gift of our presence. All of these brings us Christmas joy.

I implore upon you not to abandon the joy of Christmas when December 25th comes to end but stretch out Christmas joy throughout the year. Make time to gather with family and friends. Give the best gift of your presence to those who feel lonely or are alone. Give gifts to those less fortunate. Most importantly, find time to steal away every day to bask in the presence of Jesus. You will emerge with a renewed vigor in spreading and experiencing Christmas joy throughout the entire year.

Have a Merry Awesomely Blessed Joyous Christmas!

Thank You So Very Much! Happy Thanksgiving!

Greetings,

God is so expansive in all that He does. Sometimes a mere thank you doesn’t suffice. Every day God does exceedingly abundantly far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes. He does all of this because of the best gift that He has placed inside each of us to succeed in every facet of our lives.

Grammatically speaking it may appear that “thank you so very much” goes overboard in our expressions for all that God does. Truly, there are no words in the human vernacular to adequately express our gratitude for all God does every day—known and unknown.

As you go throughout this Thanksgiving season, move beyond the superficiality entrenched in shopping from Black Friday to Cyber Monday to embrace the exceeding-ness of God’s love and the thankfulness of the season. Throughout this Thanksgiving weekend, take precious moments to thank God so very much for infinitely blessing you beyond your highest prayers, dreams, desires, thoughts or hopes for your success in every facet of your life.

Have a Happy Blessed Thanksgiving!

Merry Christmas! Celebrating Love!

Greetings,

As I was perusing through Facebook and reading some of the comments, I heard a recurring echo that many were not feeling Christmas this year. For some it was because of the loss of a loved one and the holidays have taken on some new complexities. Other voiced that they couldn’t put their finger on it, but they just weren’t “feeling it.” Even myself in the past few years have had to push myself through the Christmas holiday season.

At one point in my journey, and to a vast extent now, Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year. It is as much about being with family and friends as it is about the birth of Jesus. I believe that embedded in being with family and friends is the birth of Jesus because of love. In recent years, our family dynamic has changed. We have lost family members who have made their transitions. There are those who have elected not to participate for whatever reason. It doesn’t stop Christmas from being memorable.

Christmas was the highlight of my year. I anticipated it as much as I did when I was young child. Even when I lived away, not coming home for Christmas was never an option. I anticipated celebrating every day with family and friends that kicked off on Christmas Eve and culminated on New Year’s Day.

Things change. Sometimes I find myself longing for those days of old. This year, I made a conscious decision to just enjoy the holidays. It is too important in our lives. With so much happening and many still reeling from such a contemptuous presidential campaign and even post-campaign events that ignites uncertainty, I can’t help but believe what is happening in our society is also playing a role in how we feel this holiday season.

There comes a time when the true meaning of Christmas must take paramount over feelings and outside circumstances. I realized years ago, it was beyond feelings, gift giving or decorations. It was rooted in living out the greatest two commandments to love God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength and to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.

God loved us so much that He sent His only Son that we would not only have eternal life, but experience an abundant life here on earth. It exemplifies his unconditional love for us. I believe with all my heart, we must move beyond the feelings, woes and even the loses and embrace love.

Love for family. Love for friends. Love for neighbors. Just love for everyone regardless if they are like us or not or espouse to our philosophies or beliefs. We truly need to just love.

With love comes joy, peace, faith, happiness and the sheer ability to look beyond everything else and enjoy the Christmas season. Join me in making love the guiding force that propels you through this joyous season of celebration.

Have a Merry Awesomely Blessed Christmas!
