A couple of weeks ago we decided to go on a double date into “the city,” San Francisco.
We left the kids behind, with some trusted friends, and took off down the 101.
We parked under Union Square and waited for a table at the Cheesecake Factory for over two hours.
Regardless of the wait, it was fun to get out and have some fun with some friends.
This time of year causes a lot of stress on people and it’s important to slow down.
You’ve got to take some time for yourself and breathe.
There will be enough worries and stressors to come with the new year ringing in.
The economy may tank further, more people may occupy things and difficult times are most likely ahead…
Not uplifting to you?
This should be:
11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
– Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
And if that’s not enough, just take a look at the people you love who are around you and be thankful as we celebrate the birth of Jesus this month… be thankful for everything God has given to you, including freedom in Christ.
