Welcome to my domain...if you dare...

Welcome to my blog about life as a writer and the craziness it involves with struggles of daily life. Make yourself at home but only if you don't mind a little messiness from time to time. This isn't the Home and Garden blog or Martha Stewart so don't expect cute little crafts with homemade goodies. That's not happening in the world of vamps, weres, and other things that go bump in the night...well...maybe homemade blood cakes topped with 'scream a la cream' sweetness along with the sexy alpha males who serve it up.

Thoughtful Thursday...You can't limit GOD's love.

Every Christmas I enjoy watching my favorite Christmas movies and discovering new ones.  Some are comedies, dramas, or even musicals.  Although they may differ in their genres, they all convey similar messages of faith, hope, and love.

These movies make me laugh, cry, and replace my hope in others.  Yet, the thing is I don't need these movies to remind me of the goodness in people.  Goodness is around me, I just have to choose to look for it and grasp it.

I realize there are terrible and evil events which occur within the world but allowing them to destroy my faith in humanity and doubt GOD's Sovereignty gives despair and hopelessness a strong hold within my life.  I refuse to submit to fear and hopelessness.  I also choose to believe in faith, hope, and continual love throughout the year not just at Christmas time.  You see, GOD's love isn't contained within a religious holiday, or church building.  HIS love has no limits because HE is Omnipotent and that means not being limited within a movie reel as well. 

So as you go out this holiday season and celebrate with loved ones, look around and reflect on GOD's love and hope which HE's lavished upon us.  Then continue to look at the world through GOD's eyes when the holiday season ends.  Seek out the good which is in others and know that GOD is always present.  Remember to love others as GOD loves them not how you think they should be loved.  Don't try to keep HIS love contained within the confines of a church but extend the faith, hope, and love throughout the ends of the Earth.

Merry Christmas and GOD bless you all.
