The real reason for the season

Hello awesome people,

I was going to post an entirely different post, all about my husband today.  Today is the love of my life's birthday.  I was going to borrow from my dear friend Laura of "Decor to Adore" and post a reason for every year of my husband's life, why he's so special to me.  Funny thing, though, when I sat down to post I noticed that I have new follower, and I wanted to go see what she's like.  I haven't met her, and I probably never will, but I want to.  I decided a long time ago after many painful life lessons, that I want to surround myself with positive thinking people.  People who care about the same things I do, injustice, acceptance, tolerance, honesty, etc., and I know I've been doing a really good job, because of all the amazing friends I have right now, both locally and online.  As much as I know my husband would love to see a post about how much I love him, I'm pretty darn sure he'll be just fine with this highlight of another in honor of him.  My husband is dealing with some of the darkest and ugliest sins us humans can do each other, in his job, and as much as I love him and want to protect him, he is doing a great service to mankind and that's all I can say about it.  He knows I'm proud of him and the work he's doing, and if all of you knew, you'd be proud, too.

So, having said all's a blog I'd like you all to visit if you get the chance and please read her post: This is the real reason for this season, and in honor of my beloved husband.

I'm wishing each and everyone who reads this, the Merriest of Christmas's and lets try and make 2014 all about acceptance, tolerance, love and forgiveness.

God Bless,

I am so very sad to hear that your husband is going through a tough time right now. it breaks my heart to hear of the cruel and mean things that we humans do to one another. if we could only look through the eyes of another person and see life as they do, if only for one brief moment, it might change our perspective on things. know that I am praying for peace for the both of you.

you can't change other people, but you can change how you choose to respond to them and what power you give them in your lives.... put them where they belong.

I am so happy that we have happened upon one another in this great big bloggy world! thank you for the very kind shout out in your post. it means a lot!! :)

wishing you a very Merry Christmas! may 2014 overflow with blessings!
and happy happy birthday to your husband!


Your hubby sounds like he has some "job"...Happy Birthday to him.
Hoping the New Year brings us all Peace, Love, Joy and Happiness!

Yes, as I said on my FB page the second most important commandment that Christ gave us was to love one another. No ifs, ands or buts. :)
