Dear Friends, It is the most wonderful time of the year. It's a time where almost all of us celebrate something. It's a time in which we are grateful for what we have and give freely to those who have need. It's a time to share the love and warmth of your home. A time to care for others and to see family. But perhaps that isn't what you wanted this Christmas. Perhaps Christmas hasn't been what it's supposed to be for you in a long long while. There are some of us that this is the first year we are celebrating without someone else. This is the first Christmas where the gift we want is something that no one can give. But this is Christmas: it's a gift of a promise. A promise that you no longer have to be cut off from a God who loves you. A celebration that He elected to join us in this life; In the trouble, and heartache, and pain. He came to stop the hurt. That we might have life, and life more abundant. A life free of worry, of strife, or of sadness. A life where you are not defined by your mistakes or failures or position in this life. All of this is a gift given freely to you. And from this gift we are given the strength and will to give of ourselves. To give love to those who hurt us. To give love to those we have never met. To give love. Today, if you are feeling like it isn't a gift, or you're in need of a gift, or you just don't want today to feel like a it's a punishment. Please let me know. That I might make today a gift to you. Merry Christmas. I love you. Joseph Bohan One of the Real Ones
So, about three years ago, my sister (who was 18 at the time.) started dating this boy, DJ, who was like 22. I dont know too many details, but apparently, my parents dont like him. My parents were hard on my sister and scolded her for a lot of random things (even before she started dating him!). She was tired of it and complained about it to DJ. He supposedly made some type of threat towards my parents. Now, i know the dude, he's pretty cool and wouldnt hurt a fly. My parents are freaking out about it! Theyve made up stories about him cheating on my sister and saying my neighbors saw it happen. But i asked my neighbor and she reaponded, "Who's DJ?" there is a lot going on and i dont know how to handle it. Its three years later, i havent seen my sister in over a year, and my parents dont talk to her anymore. I wish i could fix it, but i dont know how...
