I Enjoy Thanksgiving But I'm Ready For The Christmas Season

Let's be real the last three months of the year is the time of year that I look forward to every year. It's not just because my birthday starts it off but also because of the cooler weather coming in. This time of year is the fun holiday season and I don't know about most people but I love when my whole family is able to come together to eat good food and spend time with each other since we all live far away.

Thanksgiving is a great holiday and I love the food that my family prepares for it. Everyone has an assigned dish to make, usually my mom does the bulk of it, but we all try and help when we can. Thanksgiving morning we have the Macy's day parade on even though we do not really watch it, while my dad is getting the turkey ready. By 11:00 am the kitchen is already smelling so good. Once the food is all ready we say the blessing and dive in to feast on the delish food that has been cooking all day.

God has given me so many blessings to be thankful for this year and I am always very grateful for everything that he has done for me. That is why I am so ready for the Christmas season to begin, even though I have been celebrating it early and my friends have been telling that it's too early I still sing Christmas songs anyway. Christmas is not only a special season because of all the loving hearts, giving spirits and joyful souls that people have during this time of year but, the main reason for the season is about Jesus Christ and celebrating his birth. God's greatest gift for us was his son and he did that out of love even when He knew what was going to come next.

My biggest wish for this Christmas season is that everyone would enjoy what they love doing which is giving gifts to those that they love, but to not let that consume what this time of year is all about. In Hebrews 12:28 it states " Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe." I like this verse because we are all so unworthy of God's love, but he gives it to us anyway and he blesses us and we need to be thankful. Not just during the time that we are supposed to be but rather all year long. I hope that everyone has a happy Thanksgiving, eat all the turkey, Mac n cheese, green beans, mashed potatoes, cranberry jelly and whatever else you enjoy.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
