Dec 14: Remember that God walks with you

A perfect Christmas picture….what we all look forward to.

“In the midst of happiness or despair, in sorrow or in joy, in pleasure or in pain: Do what is right and you will be at peace.” – Jess Rothenberg, The Catastrophic History of You and Me

In the evening of that same day, the first day of the week, the doors were closed in the room where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews. Jesus came and stood among them. He said to them, ‘Peace be with you,’ – John 20:19

What do each of you ask of Christmas?
That one special gift you hope for.
Is it Christmas dinner with your family?
Or a holiday away from home.

Some of us will face disappointments.
Others will enjoy and have a merry Christmas.
The lonely will pray to get through the holidays.
How do we bring Christmas to the homeless?

The world is a harsh place.
Life is filled with hardship,
And pockets of joy and happiness.
Remember that God walks with you.

Family is important, family is everything.
When one by one stop returning home,
Christmas can be brutally harsh.
Peace, hope, joy and love shatters.

What do I ask of this Christmas?
His peace to envelope my home.
To keep safe those not coming home.
That the candle of love burns strong.

Please continue to share with friends, for the World needs our prayers.
Peace be with you. Amen.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
