Everyone talks about the “best Christmas ever.” That this year’s Christmas is better than last Christmas, which was better than the year before. It shows appreciation, but should we compare? Maybe. If you were to ask me, I don’t have a “best Christmas ever.” I have maybe my “top memorable Christmases” and a few “tough Christmases” I remember. Looking back to remember is important while appreciating the “now,” the present time, We can still look ahead to the future—with hope. #LookForwardBackwardinDecember #amwriting #MerryChristmas @donnalhsmith @a3writers TWEETABLE
Merry Christmas Eve!
Sometimes, we think God has forgotten us, but His word says, that’s impossible. Isaiah 49:15 says, “Can a woman forget her nursing child…Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you.” When God makes a promise, He keeps it. #LookForwardBackwardinDecember #amwriting @donnalhsmith @a3writers TWEETABLE

In the book of Isaiah, God tells Israel to both forget and to remember “the former things.” What God wants us to forget is to get past our past. He’s put a new heart in us. #LookForwardBackwardinDecember #amwriting @donnalhsmith @a3writers TWEETABLE
Every year is different. For the most part, I’ve really enjoyed this year. As I look back, it’s been one of the best three years that I can remember of my life. Well, maybe five. I don’t know, I only know it’s been one of the best. How do you evaluate “best?” Happy, healthy, fulfilled, and thankful—that’s how I grade one of the best years of my life. #LookForwardBackwardinDecember #amwriting @donnalhsmith @a3writers TWEETABLE
