May the peace of God be with you and your loved ones this holiday season.

May your lives also be filled with the blessings of joy, happiness, and love.

May the remainder of this year be vibrant and unforgettable.

May the new year be peaceful, joyful, colorful, fruitful, and wonderful.









Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him! Make it as clear as you can to all you meet that you’re on their side, working with them and not against them. Help them see that the Master is about to arrive. He could show up any minute! ~ Philippians 4:4-5, MSG

Laugh with your happy friends when they’re happy; share tears when they’re down. ~ Romans 12:15, MSG

There is an appropriate time to do all things—the right time for every earthly event. However, even though this time of the year is festive and exciting for most people, there will be some individuals and/or families who will be feeling hopeless and weary. Let us always be ready not only to rejoice with the folks who want us to celebrate with them but also be ready to care for the ones who need us to demonstrate compassion for them. 

NOTE: The haiku in my illustrated Holidays Haiku is from Perfect Peace (2015)—my collection of haiku poetry.
