Merry Christmas from Richard

Merry Christmas to each of you who take the time to read my blog posts. It means a lot for me to be able to express myself through blogging/writing. You are the ones who see me when I am soaring through the clouds, as well as the ones who see me fall hard.

This holiday season has been quite a difficult challenge for me. I had been in the hospital on the week of Thanksgiving from not taking my meds correctly, that threw my whole life in I am thankful for my psychiatrist of 8 years who has patiently seen me through my lowest and highest. I am thankful for my dad who no matter what who has encouraged me when I run to him. He is a tender and patient man who I love as my father.  It is very difficult and humbling at these low points in my life to pick up and carry on with the responsibilities that God has given me right now in my life. There are good days and there are bad days, but I must carry on,  and release those heavy burdens to the LORD JESUS, taking baby steps daily.

It is so easy to run but tough to stay and face things and try to change what I can.

On the bright side of things, it is a time of season for giving and not thinking about self and the problems it has. A time to remember who it is really all about, and that is JESUS.
