HOLD TIGHT


I love old Christmas movies. They stir up all kinds of wonderful feelings and memories. One special one that comes to mind is “A Christmas Story.”

I think it really hits home because it takes place in the town where I grew up and I can relate to a lot of the situations; for example having our holiday meal in a Chinese restaurant; going to see Santa at the mall and getting rushed through before you can itemize your wish list; having the turkey fall to the floor before it can be served; getting just the right tree and trying to decorate it to dad’s perfecting eye. 

 There was one thing that happened to a little boy when he was double dog dared to put his tongue on a cold metal pole. Well, apparently that kid didn’t know that he would stick fast to that pole for a very long time. 

When God invites us to stick to Him, we know that it will be a good thing. We may still have struggles in our lives and there certainly will be pain and sorrow, but we can be sure that He won’t let us go. 

What a comfort that is for those of us who can’t make it through life alone. Stick tight to Him and He will cling to us with a strength we can’t begin to understand.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    In my childhood I briefly had my tongue stuck to a metal gate. I’m not sure if I tried that trick more than once. Thanks for awakening the memories.
