Good day, Beautiful people!
This is a celebration season that most of us are busy getting ready for Christmas, attending parties and gathering with loved ones, families and friends. Whether you are a believer or not, most of us in the world celebrate Christmas. Christmas is one of the international public holiday that enjoy by many. Christmas can joyful for some and sorrowful for others. My heart goes out to the people suffer great loss this Christmas. My prayer is that you find treat #peace and comfort .
15th December 2014, the world woke up shocked, received a dreadful news that Sydney Siege. We are all saddened by this news and watched on TV and mass media live coverage helplessly at this new form of barbaric terrorist act unfolded itself. Tears just stream down my eyes, prayed for quick resolution. I knew many prayed over Sydney and Australia. Thank you so much.
This really brings it home. ” Two decent and innocent people have lost their lives, and their families and friends now face life without them. The proximity to Christmas will make each anniversary a little poignant. Others were physically injured and all have been through a trauma that none of us can really imagine.”- Amanda Vanstone
A week aftermath, Sydney still loved, stands taller and stronger. People just pay respect at Martin place. One good thing that happened is seeing Christians and Muslims cried and hugged one another. It is touching to see sea of flowers. Great tragedies bring out great unity. Once again, we are reminded the lessons of humanity.
We are really living in crazy time. We still trying to recover from Sydney Siege. Two days ago, we woke up with another tragic news, Cairns massacre.
Eight children were being murdered by a 37 year old mother. This is beyond comprehension. It made me speechless, dishearten and pray for the victims family and friends.
Hope for good closure for all the victims’ families and friends.
Tips by Ps Joel A’Bell
TIP 1. LOVE
Love conquers all. And genuine love fills our homes with acceptance, hope and a sense of belonging.
TIP 2. FORGIVE
Forgiveness is not always easy, but the results bring unity in the home and between the members of the household. The Bible says; where unity prevails God commands a blessing (Psalm 133).
TIP 3. FOCUS
Whilst social media is informative and can keep us connected, it also has the ability to keep us disconnected with the people who matter the most… family. This Christmas why don’t we put down our phones and electronic devices, on purpose, and engage in life-giving conversations.
Have a blessed Christmas with Jesus as the reason for the season.
