So I finally made the decision to get glasses again this last week. It has been way to long. I was first prescribed glasses back in 2010. I had glasses for about a year until they broke. At the time I was in no position to purchase another pair because I was straight broke and in a very low point in my life. After that few years I was finally in a position to get glasses again, but procrastinated on it instead. Fast forward to last Friday, and now I have 4 eyes again!
I know what you’re thinking; “God is always at the Grammy’s, Ronnie!” or “God get’s thanked in nearly every speech, he’s always there, Ronnie!” But the Grammy’s were so much different this year. God was forefront from the beginning to the end, in major ways. In more ways than I feel he has ever been before.
It’s safe to say that pretty much everyone is ready for the end of the year, but we have one more holiday to get through first. The one that has so many meanings to so many people. Yes, Christmas; the most misunderstood, stressful, and risky. This holiday affects me in all of the Big 4; Christianity, alcoholism, mental illness, and homosexuality. I always dread going into this holiday because of all the implications it could have on me. Will I forget to acknowledge the true meaning of Christmas? How many events will I go to that there will be alcohol? How will my mind handle the stress and anxiety of all the expectations surrounding this day? How many ‘Clobber Passage’ zealots will I be able to avoid before one of them throws one of those scriptures at me?
I always find inspiration from all kinds of sources, mostly other peoples personal blogs that touch on topics that I can relate to. I have pulled together my favorite blogs of 2016 that have really helped me through this last year. I hope that you too can find inspiration and guidance through them, as I have.
Basing a relationship off whether or not you are friends with someone on Facebook is indicative of the culture we currently find ourselves in. What did we do before social media? Relationships were apparently nonexistent until the introduction of Facebook.
