Christmas in July

I love winter and christmas.

I love the tranquility that comes over us when the snow falls, and we can not but wait for the snow to melt and can get started again.
All I'm sorry about is, that when Christmas itself is near, many people are stressing - and in their haste and preparation, they forget why we celebrate Christmas.
I think it's thoughtful that we spend more than the year before, the sales volume of the stores rises and rises. In Denmark vi have en old beloved christmas song, it is called "Sikken voldsom trængsel og alarm", translated it is something like: What a busy crows, thrill and alarm". The words in this song, written in 1848, has a message in tune with time to day: We use more and more.
I am grateful to the Savior and I am grateful for a period when thoughts and times are about Him - or should do it. Often I hear people say: i don't have time to talk about Him, there's som much I have to do! Many forget the man we celebrate: The Son of God. Let's put Him first this year.

Trust in the small voice and yourself!

What a great week we had last week. Our son came home to visit, from the UK. It was so great to see him again. To have the hole family together, even for a short time, was a blessing. One I will keep in my heart and cherish for a very long time.

Last night I learned a valuable lesson: Trust yourself - and the Still small voice! Do not trust others so much, that you do not listen to your inner feelings.

I have had pain in the upper abdomen since Saturday evening. I've had the same kind of pain before, and a number of times I have been hospitalized - without the doctors having been able to find a reason for the pains.
This doctor's reaction was: The medication you have been prescribed should not be taken after you have received a gastric bypass. You must stop now! Your stomach is inflammatory.

I have said to Lars on several occasions that I felt there was a connection between these pills and my stomach ache. I have also told my GP, but he said it could not be - and I believed him.. What can I learn from this? Listen to your body! L
isten to your instinct. You're the one who knows best about what's happening to you ... do not let others convince you otherwise. Listen to the little soft voice - it will protect you.
