(1) as much as we fill our lives with material things; they never fulfill the inner longings of our hearts.
(2) sometimes the things we don't want to hear are the things we need to hear.
(3) we all struggle, day/night; we are no better than anyone.
(4) acting on God's nudges are the way to go; don't ignore them.
(5) Christmas music is sometimes the music you need to hear.
(6) we all need people to talk to; tell our happinesses, fears, worries, goals, and frustrations to. lend an ear.
(7) love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. i tend to forget that.
