The Christmas Blessing
As you get into the spirit of Christmas
what is it that you see off in a distance?
you may be able to praise God and witness
the good and magnificent silence.
As we give our gifts here at Christmas time
It is the time to think of giving not receiving,
Yes, It’s a time to receive gift too but give time
to the Lord at the same time you are receiving.
The side of giving gifts is so miraculous
with the good and surprising facial expressions
on the members of your family faces,
which are gracious
which leaves you with a wonderful impression.

PS… This is one of my own Graphics I am using at top.
A brief note… At Ruby for Women a different image is being used for my poem.
And this poem has been published in the December 2016 Ruby for Women Magazine.
After searching for my children for years I finally found the right people to help me find my children that have been adopted. I was suppose to have an open adoption but I moved to Michigan; I was not well and lost all my contact information for my children. It is disappointing that I missed them while they have grown up so far… Well I have some years left before they become adults to watch them grow up if I can. I miss my children so much that I cannot wait to have the adoptive parents approval to be in contact with them. I am finally getting somewhere with the company I am using to help me find my children. I really miss my children.
My children have been found I am just waiting for a response from the Phone Call and Letter that have been sent out to the adoptive parents. All I want for now is to write letters to each other and share photographs. I do not want to miss anymore Birthdays either. I will eventually work my way toward phone calls and being in contact with their Grandparents that miss them so much.
I called Tuesday and yesterday to check if there was any response yet and there is not so far. Than there was a few phone calls back from the lady I am working with and she asked me if I would like to start writing a letter to my children so that when and if they respond and say yes to the letters they are ready to be sent out lol. So they will have both their dad’s and My Family Medical History and letters ready to be sent to them right away. I am ending up calling the lady everyday until we get an answer lol. I cannot believe we have made it this far after having no luck on this for many years before now.
As for my First daughter; she turned 20 in May and I have not heard from here since last year. I know I need to write her a letter also; so that we can eventually meet like she would like too and I would like too. I have just been going through some hard times and have not thought about it for a while until now. So when I am done writing to my other children I will write back to her too.
With God’s Help I am still smoke free and I have been Smoke Free for 10 months now. I have had my days that I wanted to start again but luckily one day the lighter that was next to me did not work lol.
As for the Gluten Free Diet I never started that diet like I wanted to at the time. But someone talked me out of it to keep the same meals as usual in the family. But now I see that, that is not the cause of my illness.
With God’s Guidance I am still considering starting my Portfolio all over again because I think I would like to use my new Business name Sharmelle’s Graphic Haven there. I may also be using my blog more often now that I am back with Ruby for Women Ministries and administrating that Ministry. I am also working on new graphics and I will try making the older graphics all over again since the resolution is incorrect on my first sets of my graphics. As for the new Creative Fonts I have, I am still loving using them.
With God’s Grace I have worked a little on my account at Zazzle.com… But because it is different from 2013 now I am a little confused on how to use it now. Well I worked on it some for Valentines Day; I am thinking of starting all over again because I will need to slim the shop down with making other stores from Zazzle.com. So there will be new things added to each store I make.
With God’s trust in me I am also helping out in several of my communities . There is A New Gaia Community that I have some tasks that I am in charge of. I am also helping out with Gaian Poetry Showcase. I have also helped my friend start her ministry/community again. This Ministry/community is call Ruby for Women. I have been really busy with Ruby for women and helping getting it started as Administrator. This Ministry/community is a Christian Ministry/community for Women. There is a Christian Magazine called Ruby for Women published every month that members, writers, crafters, and etc. can add to the magazine.
Yep, That’s me Sharmelle lmbo!!!
How would I improve myself in 2016?
Well, I quit smoking in August of 2015, so as of New Years Day of 2016 I will be 130 days Smoke Free. I am so proud of myself for accomplishing quitting smoking for as long as I have. It was not as hard as I made it be before lol. Rob and I ran out of Tobacco and Tubes before the month was over in August lol. Well Dad did not come over until the third day we were with out cigarettes… The first thing Rob did was ask dad for a cigarette and I decided not to ask for one because I slept it of for the three days we were with out. The only problem that I am having after quitting smoking is Gaining some of my weight back and I am having troubles losing what I gained because I am always hungry and eating now lol. But I will fix that in January 2016 lol.
As of some time between January 5th and January 7th I will start my Gluten Free Diet do to an illness I have been having problems with and I have had tests done for it; but they all came out normal for the tests that were done. So I figures I would try a Gluten Free Diet for a month to see if that is the actual problem after all. But depending on how I like this diet I may keep up this diet though the year. I’ve also been told that you lose a lot of weight on this diet so this would be good for me in the long run.
In addition to starting my business I need to finish/start my portfolio all over again Online, Start using my blog more often. I will be trying to make new graphics for my business and other places on the Internet. Oh so cool I get to use my Creative Fonts that I ordered after my parents sent $20.00 for Christmas lol. I am so happy that I have fonts that I may use on my graphics with out having to pay to use each font on my graphics for my business lol.
I would like to include that I am trying to start my business at zazzle.com with my graphics. I am doing this because I am afraid of losing my income after the next presidency Because they do not seem to care about the poor/less fortunate families in this country. But beside that I am so happy to be able to sell my graphics on products right now and in the future.
I will also be helping out in several of my communities . There is A New Gaia Community that I have some tasks that I am in charge of. I am also helping out with Poetry Showcase. I will also be helping a friend start a ministry/community again. This Ministry/community is call Ruby for Women.
