Trish, I will be praying for God to lead you in what you need to do about the second job. If you don't mind and want to share,you can write me at my CNet EMail,and let me know what the doctor said when you saw him or her. I would like to know but either way I am already praying for your health. God Bless

I would really appreciate your prayers concerning my part time job. I am beginning to believe I should quit working that second job for a while.

Jennifer you turn to God and start praising for what you do have. If you go around with an attitude of defeat you will never rise above it. Happiness in life isn't measured in what we have but in who we have. We have our Families and time and God will take care of the rest. We have God who has all power in Heaven and Earth. Find out what kind of Charity Hospitals or programs they have in your City for the needed surgery. Think about and handle one problem at a time. If your children are small comfort them with love,if teenagers then they need to face life isn't always perfect and man doesn't always have control. Tell kids line your life up with God's Word to obey,and if you have food,clothing,and a home life could be worse.

Jennifer: I am sorry that you had a rough Christmas. It sounds like your children are either very young, or very immature. When my kids were young, we could not afford the expensive stuff. They survived and they are much more balanced now as a result. They are all grown, and they have a much healthier view of gift giving than a lot of people.
If your children are old enough, I suggest that you take them to volunteer to serve a meal at a homeless shelter that houses children. My daughter and her husband spent Christmas day doing just that.

Please pray for me. Our family had a miserable Christmas cause we can't buy all the things we used to and we were all sick yesterday. And I have to have surgery and my husband needs another kind of surgery. Our kids are all mad at us for not giving them what they wanted for Christmas. I don't know what to do now or where to turn. Thank you.

Its wonderful Trish that at Christmas time you had your family together. We had all but one of ours,our adopted by love,not legal ones,and that was because the husband was due to go to Egypt and the wife got a free ticket to fly to Las Vegas to see her son,only child,then the Company husband works for changed his plans to after first of year. We had a great time at my daughters and so blessed because we still have Mom at 90. I am looking forward to a better year this next year,for everyone,I pray. I never Make any New Years resolutions but I am going to try to draw nearer to God next year. He has been so good to all my family that words can't express how grateful I am.

It is Friday, the day after Christmas. My family had a blessed Christmas together, just my Mom, sister, sister-in-law, niece and nephew. We had an early Christmas on Saturday with all of my children and my granddaughter. I appreciate my times with the family more this year, given it is our first without my brother, Jack, and our third without my brother, Neil. Time is precious, and I appreciate my family all the more this year.

Here it is the day before Christmas and baking time for me. I still lack one gift so I also have to go shopping. I count it all joy to have a reason for doing all that for Christmas and loved ones. I would like to say a very Blessed and rich Christmas to everyone. May all your Holiday be Merry and the New Year be bright. May God open His hand and pour out love upon you all. Moderators and other CNet staff including President,thank you for making it possible to have this Christian site,it is a blessing. May happiness be yours daily,may you find more to smile about everyday,may peace and love dwell within you and may you grow in the fullness of God every step of your way. May there be song in your hearts unto God. Merry Christmas,Happy New Year

Cliff, That is interesting. I know that there are many Amish around Ohio, and I am sure the Mennonites probably follow for some reason. I had not thought of Ontario as a place of migration for either. Thanks for enlightening me.
Weather, while you are getting White Christmas, I am getting Wet Christmas. Today is freezing rain.
Have a great Christmas. Enjoy the snow.

No Trish,we live north of you in the great frozen north(Ontario) We have many Mennonite communities here who have emigrated up from PA years ago!
We are bracing for what the media calls "snowmageddon" 3 back to back to back major storms. I just dug out from the 1st one today,another comming sun. and a 3rd on wed.
Talk about your "white Christmas"!!!

Cliff: We have a lot of Mennonites here in PA. You wouldn't be near there, would you?
I am enjoying my granddaughter so much. She helped me decorate a gingerbread house today. What a mess we made. It was so much fun. Poor house looks pitiful, but she and I had fun.

Take care of you and Steve too. God Bless "y'all".

Thanks for starting this blog. I am so thrilled to share that my granddaughter was here, and she was wearing a T-shirt that read, "I'm the Big Sister." I have been praying that this would happen. What a blessing. I got to see the picture of the baby from the ultrasound. My granddaughter sits on my daughter's lap, points to her belly and says, "Babies." There is only one, but my granddaughter is only 8 months old.
Praise the Lord.
