I have learned that the Bible gives so much reassurance and strength to us, even when we feel like failures because we now have to set out on this single parenting journey. Where is God in single parenthood? Right beside you, holding your hand. With Him, even when you are single parenting, you are not doing it alone.
The time of year characterised by spending, over-indulging, giving and jollification. Who doesn’t like the festive season? It is so much fun to decorate your tree and house and garden and spend hours and hours looking for the perfect gift, cooking the perfect meal and hosting the perfect parties. We get so caught up in the glitz and glamour, with all the pressure to have the best Christmas that we sometimes forget the real reason for celebrating this holiday. We forget that we have to keep Christ in Christmas.
This is your first year being a single mama, spending time with your kids over Christmas. You feel like they have gone through enough this year, so you want to make the holiday season extra special without reminding them of what they have “lost”. That means trying to steer clear of previous traditions and working on creating new ones for you and your single-parent family to enjoy year after year.
