Inspirational Thought for the Day: This Is My Wish For You

Comfort on difficult days,

Smiles when sadness intrudes,

Rainbows to follow the clouds,

Laughter to kiss your lips,

Sunsets to warm your heart,

Hugs when spirits sag,

Beauty for your eyes to see,

Friendships to brighten your being,

Faith so that you can believe,

Confidence for when you doubt,

Courage to know yourself,

Patience to accept the truth,

Love to complete your life

Inspiration for the Divorced Parent After Christmas: My Story

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and don't lean on your own understanding. In all things acknowledge him, and he shall direct your way. ~Proverbs 3:5, 6.  

Holidays are always a tough time for single parents. The child(ren) are shuffled from here to there and God forbid it is written in your divorce decree  that you have to rotate every other year (which is my case).

Christmas was always my favorite holiday and this year....I barley made it through because my ex decided that it was best for him to move to SC last year after Christmas. This meant this year 4 days before Christmas my daughter was on a plane to SC. One second she was hear and the next she was gone. I was stuck…confused…and sad.

The problem is that in his mind he doesn’t see her and he feels no guilt, no remorse for taking her from her mother on Christmas no matter how much it means to me. This is the ugly side of divorce in its truest and rarest form. It is the thing that hurts  the most about being divorced whether mother or father…spending time away from your child(ren) when the law has taken away that right to be there.

Mothers don’t want to see their children suffer and a good mother will always do what is best for them, no matter the pain it will cause them. We will sacrifice heart and soul to make sure that our child(ren) are okay and don’t know the true pain and reach of the reach world. We will protect at every turn. We will suck up the things that we want for the sake of our child(ren).

So this is the first Christmas day since I could remember feeling hurt and pain. Yes, I understand the real meaning of Christmas but that unfortunately this year it doesn’t take away the pain that only a mother can understand. But I can stake some comfort that without the Birth of Jesus there would be no Christmas and that all things consider my daughter is happy spending time with her father.

I know that God is carrying me through this moment and that is what I seek refuge in.
“Weeping may endure for a night but joy does come in the morning” ~Psalm 30:5

Inspirational Christmas Song: O Come, O Come Emmanuel by Selah

This is one of the most moving and powerful Christmas songs that I have ever heard! The lyrics capture the true spirit and meaning of why we should be celebrating Christmas and it is not about the decorating, the Christmas Tree, the gifts, the Christmas lights, egg nog and parties. It is about the birth of Jesus Christ and the Salvation that it brought to us all!

The first time I heard this song was when my brother sang it at Church Christmas concert! It brought tears to my eyes at that point because I never heard him sing a song with so much emotion and feeling. Now every time I hear this song I think of him and it reminds me of the true meaning of Christmas and the reason for the season! 

This video is so moving and truly captures the spirit and essence of this song! Hopefully you will take the time to watch, listen and be inspired to full fill the true the meaning of Christmas this holiday season and beyond!



O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny
From depths of Hell Thy people save
And give them victory o'er the grave
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Day-Spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death's dark shadows put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, O come, Thou Lord of might,
Who to Thy tribes, on Sinai's height,
In ancient times did'st give the Law,
In cloud, and majesty and awe.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

My Christmas Wish For You by Ruth Kephart

My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you've been given
To be more than what you sought

May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too

~  Ruth Kephart
