This holiday season is time for joy, celebration, comfy warm feelings, and positive look for the next year.  ...for most of us. But, if you or your loved ones have military overseas unable to join you, mental or physical illness prevent joy, unemployment strikes your world, recovery from major catastrophes is still slow, jail or prison  uniforms are on the scene, troubling news arrives at your door  and out-of-town family can not join you...the blues attack. GOT THE BLUES?  talk with the Lord, he knows blues, too.

Recently, two TV series presented excellent dramas, most likely in sync with Veteran's Day. Thankfully these pinpointed the need for us to go behind the needed tribute for serving our country well. Perhaps it is easier to cheer, enjoy the drums going bang and cymbals clanging. Let's not get fooled behind this cover and go home without further thought to the real issues returning vets find here. For a few years at least, vets have mainly been of touch with employment needs  for one. Then some feel military action unjustified and reach out to returning vets who were only obeying orders.Some may feel personal relationships strained .  Why can't we all come together in one fight,,,the fight to
help our returning vets . When  your talk with the lord time comes, remember HOMECOMING VETS NEED YOUR RESPECT.

Last year the column spoke of being thankful for the past year.Such things this year could include the vicims of Sandy whose only lost property not lives, a boss in tough times told you are still here, a bouncing baby arrives, a military returns unharmed  from overseas, you get first place in school science class.  Say thanks.  But.....let's all extend the thanks to one here today and tommorow.  When having a talk with the Lord,tell Him THANKS FOR TOMMOROW.

Can't watch TV without word on the fiscal cliffs we,as a nation, face by year end. This column does not want to minimize this concern. Rather, let us zero in on EMOTIONAL CLIFFS . Fiscal cliff analizers have many to utilize in advance. But for emotions  cliffs,many come . Then the feeling of being in a sinking ship surfaces.Many of us have been in that same boat.Then turn to a superb captain to steer you straight to safety.  Talk with the Lord, he can help with your EMOTIONAL CLIFFS.
