As Christmas approaches I find myself getting more and more excited! I’m looking forward to spending a few days with family. Especially those with which we haven’t spent Christmas with in years.
I’m trying hard not to miss Tucker, but the closer it gets to Christmas, I have to admit, this momma’s heart hurts just a little. Thanksgiving is one thing, but to be alone on Christmas? That’s a whole different ball game, and it’s not just Tuck. There are so many in prison who won’t have family visit them for the holidays. It makes my heart sad.
Tuck’s been moved, yet again, to a place called The Alabama Therapeutic Educational Facility. It’s a prison for people re-entering society. Lots of classes and stuff like that. Afterwards, they can transfer to a work release program. The day they moved him I had been praying that God would protect him, because I had a weird feeling, and at 3:00pm, after only being at Staton two weeks, they moved him. God’s got something good planned for our boy!
That being said, I’ve calmed myself down. I’ve refocused my thoughts back to what matters, which is God’s plan. I’ve reminded myself that suffering is temporary, and that hope is only a prayer away; no matter the situation!
Thank You Lord for your unwavering, unending, undeserving supply of help and hope! You Lord, are the reason we can keep going when the going gets tough!
I hope everyone has a very merry Christmas! I’ll be taking a break this week to spend time with family! Y’all do the same!
God is our place of safety. He gives us strength. He is always there to help us in times of trouble. The earth may fall apart. The mountains may fall into the middle of the sea. But we will not be afraid. The waters of the sea may roar and foam. The mountains may shake when the waters rise. But we will not be afraid. Psalm 46:1-3
