Christmas wishes

I have been pretty bad at blogging and even worse at reading those I am following.  I must confess that although it was my choice to BREATHE and enjoy the process of life this year, the wheels just seem to come off towards the end. When everyone started celebrating, going on holiday and generally just having good cheer...all I wanted to do was sit in a corner with a sadness I could just not shake off.  I guess all the emotions about my father, Wynand and Nadia finally moving to their own home, trying to keep a family together (Eish...that must be the hardest thing ever...I  always find myself in the middle playing the peacemaker), hard work at the Mission and the constant headaches finally got to me.  I still haven't managed to shake the "meh" feeling.


I wish each and every one of you a blessed Christmas spent with those you love...and let us all celebrate the Great Gift we received more than 2000 years ago.



  1. I am so sorry Lynette that you are down right now... I hope that you and your family have a VERY blessed Christmas! Merry Christmas! :):):):):):):)

  2. I have also reached the end of the year feeling unsettled and a bit down so I can empathise but think how much worse we would feel without God and our Saviour to hold us up. Wishing you a very restful and peaceful Christmas.

  3. Sorry to hear that you are feeling off especially at this time of year when we are all supposed to be up. It makes it harder. Hope this grey feeling soon lifts and you can again see the joy in each day. Life can be very hard at times. Hope the headaches will soon come to an end. It must be physically exhausting to feel pain for so long. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and all good things for 2012! :)

  4. Wishing you a wonderful Christmas are one incredible lady, that I look up too so much :-)

  5. um, yes, this year has been so very hard for lots of us - I don't want to imagine how much harder without Jesus.

    I was a bit teary in the car today listening to O HOly Night - it brought it all into perspective for me. Yes, I have a sick child in the hospital that we don't know what's going on with but He is still King. He is still on the throne.

    Love to you, Lynette.

    Have you chosen your word for 2012 yet?

  6. Merry Merry Christmas dear Lynette a I wish you the BEST for 2012!!!!

  7. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family.
    (I find taking it a day at a time helps when it gets too much....breaks the problems down into smaller, amnageable chunks)

  8. So sorry to hear of all your struggles right now Lynette. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. I hope you can enjoy some downtime with family. Prayers that all is resolved for you soon and your mood lifts.

  9. I so feel for you , hun ! All these too , shall pass . I can say that 'cos I know that is so . Just that in the moment we're in sometimes , it doesn't look it .
