Joy to the world!  Let earth receive her king!  Merry Christmas and happy holiday season to your family from the SCW family.  Focus your hearts on the true reason for the season which is Christ our savior.  Really meditate on all he’s brought you through this year with a grateful heart and a fixed mind to keep trusting God.  Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the lord your God with all thine heart and lean not to your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your paths.”  Time to rejoice and celebrate with family and friends.  SCW has you covered for all your Christmas holiday needs, faith, food, entertaining and decorating.  The kids will be at the house and we’ll have a  very blessed dinner and time with them. They are big kids! Nice to see them all grown up and doing their own thing.I’m looking forward to an Amazing Christmas and New year!

Verse of the Day:

  •  While you are being blessed, Do Not Forget those less fortunate ,like the hungry, homeless, lonely, elderly, and orphaned kids, they need our support.  So shout out today to all the  organizations serving Christmas dinner.  It can be as small as, dropping off a toy at a fire station, salvation army or any organization accepting toys, helping out at a shelter, inviting a lonely person to dinner.  Remember we are blessed to be a blessing.  Matthew 7:16 “You will know them by their fruits.”  To all our followers and viewers we appreciate you, and our hope is that you continue to grow in faith.  Be encouraged, cherish the good times, learn from the difficult times.  God is with you.  From my husband and I to all of your families.  We love you, have a happy holiday season!

Having Fun in Fall

Revel in the season!  I love California, but most people come here for the warm temperatures almost year round.  I love the fall – California winter season here because it’s the only time there is a change in the weather and a dip in temperatures.  Days are cooler, nights and mornings are colder and there is some rain on and off for about 3 months.  It’s my favorite time of year here!  One good things about California is the mountains up in the high altitudes where it snows!  My family vacations in Big Bear mountain in winter and it’s amazing! California is truly is a place where you can have the best of both worlds, the beaches, mountains, deserts and valleys.  However, many of you are blessed to live in places that have the four seasons!

Embrace every new season of your life!  There’s so much to love about Fall, the beautiful colors of the leaves, fresh air, fall activities, warm cozy evenings ( my personal Favorite).  The holidays are upon us, on the one hand it may be something you don’t want to think about just yet, kinda one day at a time, and I’m with you.  However, the media and commercials won’t let us forget it.  I’ve already seen tons of black Friday ads.  Another fall favorite, of course everyone’s favorite an extra hour of sleep! Yay!  That’s right it’s that time again to fall back!  Daylight savings time ends this weekend. nTime to turn your clocks back one hour on Sunday! Sweet dreams!

 

Moms don’t forget to be good to yourself in this season!  It’s a busy life!  And you’ve got a ton of things going on.  Career, work, children’s activities, husband, home, etc… Take the time to pamper yourself wherever possible, no make it a priority.  This principle is right in line with the principal of pay yourself first!  Your uninterrupted time without the kids is crucial, yes you’re a mom, a wife, and career woman, or homemaker, but do schedule time to nurture the woman in you. Here’s how.

  • Schedule manicures and pedicures regularly
  • Schedule a massage and or your favorite spa treatment
  • Schedule some quiet time alone, maybe during this time you read your favorite book,  magazine, or website, organize your day planner for the week, meditate, and or pray
  • Schedule a salon visit and get your hair done
  • Lunch with other moms
  • Do go to grown up dinner parties where there are no kids.

Managing Life’s Transitions

Change! It’s the one constant in life.  The way we manage change can make all the difference.  Change can be positive or negative.  Expected and unexpected.  Some positive changes are getting married, going away to college, a promotion at work, retirement.  Difficult changes include loss of a person, loss of a job, illness, etc…  Positive or negative, change will come!  It must come!  They’re called transitions.  It is the essence of life.  So how do we manage change in times of difficulty?

  • Become comfortable with change, transitions give us an opportunity to assess the direction our lives are taking.
  • Expect to feel uncomfortable during transition.  As you let go of old ways of doing things and begin to accept your new normal, it’s disorientating at first but these feelings will pass and as believers we don’t live by our feelings, we live by faith.
  • Take good care of yourself. Get plenty of rest exercise, and eat well.
  • Build your support system.  Friends and  family can be a great source emotional support, they love you and genuinely want to help.
  • Take it to God in prayer.  The bible says to, Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord your God and lean not to your own understanding.”
  • Take it one day at a time. To regain a sense of power take it one step at a time, that’s all the Lord expects of you.
