Why Does Christmas Matter. By Jordan Patterson 

Because christians believe the most important moment of all was the death and resurrection of Christ. It was in this moment that marked the redemption and reconciliation of humanity with God. The birth of Jesus, which we come together and celebrate, marks the beginning of his divine rescue plan. It’s a time when people gather with loved ones, and reflect on the message of peace and goodwill towards all. To celebrate the birth of Christ is more than an opportunity to decorate our homes. It’s a chance to pause and reflect on the love found in our friend. Why is it that we’ve chosen to love each other on this day? It’s because Christmas serves as a reminder of the simple yet profound message of love and compassion that our savior brought into the world. Why can there never be greater or lesser importance of love towards one man and not another. Because in the eyes of God, every person is equally worthy of love and compassion. 
The spirit of Christmas prompts us to recognize and celebrate the inherent worth and value of every individual, encouraging us to extend love and compassion to all, just as Jesus did during his time on earth. It’s also a time to spread joy and generosity to those around us, reaffirming our bonds of love and compassion with our communities. Recognizing and supporting those in need becomes a priority, as we seek to embody the kindness and generosity exemplified by his birth. 
And you ask why does Christmas matters? Because it inspires hope, kindness, and unity, bringing people together in a spirit of love, giving, and caring. Here’s wishing you and your families a safe and wonderful holiday season. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone who wishes to celebrate.

The Blessing of a Woman’s Love. By Jordan Patterson 

The thought of her love brings courage to my heart and a sense of invincibility to my soul.

With her by my side, I feel like I can conquer any challenge that comes my way, for her love is the fuel that ignites the fire.

United in our devotion and bound by an unbreakable bond, we face all challenges, never faltering in our determination to protect her.

She’s the fire that fuels our courage, igniting a passion deep within our souls.

The memory of her face lingers in our minds, casting a radiant glow whenever we close our eyes.

Her smile, like a beacon in the darkest of times, guides us through uncertainty and lends us strength we never knew we had.

The sunshine on her face illuminates the path ahead, leading us towards a future filled with hope and possibility.

Her womanly sensibilities are like a gentle breeze, comforting and soothing in the most tumultuous storms.

I know of no greater reward than the receiving end of her smile - the way her lips curl upward, revealing a glimpse of sunshine that warms my heart.

In those precious moments, the world fades away, and all that matters is the connection between us.

Both lover and friend, she brings solace to my soul and laughter to my days.

As I quietly cry. I ask how lucky can one man be, I am overcome with gratitude for the love I have found in Her.

The Road to Salvation. By Jordan Patterson 

A broken soul in need of redemption on a treacherous path, marked by trials and tribulations. Many had faltered along the way, consumed by doubt and despair. But for those who persisted, their unwavering faith proved to be an anchor amidst the tempest, guiding them toward the light at the end of the tunnel.

As they journeyed onward, the weight of their burdens seemed to grow heavier, threatening to crush their spirits. With heavy feet I walked lost in the storm fearing that each step was dragging me deeper into darkness. The road ahead stretched out endlessly, winding through valleys of uncertainty and mountains of despair.

Needing the feeling of home and an experience of peace, they sought solace in the small gestures of kindness along the way - a smile from a stranger, a helping hand offered without expectation. They savored these fleeting moments of connection, using them as beacons of hope to carry them through the darkest hours.

Reminded when life brings you a storm, it is easy to lose sight of the road ahead, wandering lost in the unknown questioning whether it even exists. With the sun on my face I continue forward, determined to conquer the doubts that threatened to consume me.

With every hill was a mountain to climb, every obstacle a test of resilience, their faith grew stronger. With every breath, I fortified my resolve, summoning my inner strength to withstand the trials that lay ahead. But there, amidst the darkness, a flicker of hope remained, a glimmer that whispered of a journey towards healing and peace.

With unwavering faith I’m reminded that every setback was a test of resilience, challenging my commitment to the path I had chosen along the road to salvation.

The Quiet Sadness Of A Forgotten Cheer. By Jordan Patterson 

When the rain is pouring in your face. When your heart says, Stop, before the end of the race. When no one is left to dry your tears. When the crowd is gone and there's no cheers. When the doubts run strong rent free in your mind. When you dream so much of just one last time. When your courage is challenged beyond your belief. I'll whisper my love and provide relief.

When the challenges you face go all uphill. When you feel like you're no longer part of the thrill. When there is no final kiss to say goodbye. As you sit alone crying in search of why. When your dreams of greatness lose all their hope. And the life you imagined becomes one of unknown. When you feel your dreams have all slipped away. I'll come running with my love and your worthy praise.

I'll never again let you stand alone. I'll call your name in the darkness to see you home. I'll do my best to make your dreams come true because of the love I feel for you. We'll rise above and break through the sadness. As we face all challenges on the path to greatness. Know in your heart I'll never let you stand in fear. In the quiet sadness of a forgotten cheer.

Have I told you about all the beauty I see? And how I love to sit and just hear your dreams? Tell me again about those moments of greatness. Because you speak it so well it's part of your brilliance. Tell me about when the crowds would cheer. When you were the best with not an ounce of fear. When your confidence was strong and soared like a rocket ship. And your greatness went unchallenged because you were simply the best.

God’s Love. By Jordan Patterson 

When the sun comes down and warms your face you’ll feel a sense of peace and comfort, it’s God’s love and it’s always with you. It’s like a gentle breeze that whispers through the trees, reminding you that you are never alone.

Time has changed my perspective and age has changed my understanding of many thing’s, but one thing remains constant: God’s love for me.

The Greatest Gift Ever Received. By Jordan Patterson 

Though it has been years since my momma died, since she moved on without me, I never stopped thinking about her and the influence on my life. She left behind a legacy of love and wisdom that still resonates within my soul.

As a child my momma told me that suffering comes with love, and that one doesn’t exist without the other. She said “Jordan, you need to find a place for your suffering, it’s not a curse, it’s a blessing.” She said, “you’re sensitive and a lover, and it’s always going to be like this.” Those words, spoken so long ago, have stayed with me and guided me through every stage of my life.

So before my aunt Joan passed away she started reading me my momma letters that these two women exchanged over the many years of their lives and one where my momma described her plans to adopt me. It was then that I realised the depth of love my momma had for me, even before I came into this world.

I felt a surge of emotions as I listened to my aunt's trembling voice, weaving the stories of the letters together with a tender nostalgia. Tears welled up in my eyes as I realised that the greatest gift I had ever received was not something tangible, but rather the profound love that I felt my entire life.

In that moment, surrounded by the words of love penned by my momma and the heartfelt narrations of my aunt, I knew that this gift was real and mine to keep forever. I share this because My momma would tell me as a child that she’d been searching for me my whole life. Oftentimes she would ask “do you know how much I love you?”

With tears streaming down my face, I responded to my momma's question, "No, Momma, I don't think I'll ever fully.”

It is heartbreaking to think but it wasn’t until the end of her life that we had one of the most important conversations together. She held my hand tightly, her eyes brimming with wisdom and a lifetime of experiences. She sat in front of me weeping. My momma thought that being mistreated and abused by my family members meant she had somehow failed me in life.

In that vulnerable moment, I reached out and reassured her, "Momma, please don't blame yourself.”

I was quick to remind her of all the wonderful books she read to me as a child, and how The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe had inspired my dreams and sense of adventure. I told her that her love, guidance, and nurturing had shaped me into the person I had become. I told her that I love because she loves me.

In that tender moment, I watched as a wave of relief washed over my momma's tear-stained face. She took a deep breath and a small smile formed at the corners of her lips. As She said “I love you Jordan, you’re the greatest gift ever received.”

A Spiritual Revelation Is The Evolution Of Me. By Jordan Patterson 

A Spiritual revelation is the Evolution of me. It's a journey of self-discovery, where I unlock the deepest mysteries of my soul and unearth a newfound understanding of my purpose in life.

Through this revelation, I embrace the interconnectedness of all things and recognize that my existence is woven into the fabric of the universe, each action and each thought. It’s a transformation and journey towards a greater faith, sense of freedom and inner growth.

I delve into the realms of meditation and mindfulness, embracing the power of stillness and silence to connect with the divine energies that reside within me. At every breath, I feel the divine presence guiding me, whispering messages of wisdom into the depths of my being.

It’s my future, a daily conversation I’ve chosen to have with myself. In this ongoing dialogue, I explore the depths of my own beliefs and question the limitations I once imposed on myself. I wake up each morning, eager to embrace the infinite possibilities that lie ahead on my spiritual path.

Realising that true fulfilment comes from within, I let go of my attachments. I make time to breathe, and I find comfort within myself. As I sit in stillness, I feel the gentle embrace of silence. I listen intently to the whispers of my soul, as it guides me towards a deeper understanding of my purpose.

I can no longer be found in those places that don’t bring comfort to my soul. My yearning for love is both the beginning and end of each thought and conversation with myself. I know that my journey towards self-growth and evolution requires me to constantly reassess the relationships in my life.

In this process of self-evolution, I have learned to let go of external expectations and societal pressures. Instead, I focus on connecting with my own values and passions, forging my own path in life. With each step I take, I can feel the weight of judgement being lifted off my shoulders, replaced by a sense of freedom and authenticity.

A spiritual revelation is the evolution of me. It's a journey of self-discovery, where I unlock the deepest mysteries of my soul and unearth a newfound understanding of my purpose in life.

Beauty Is. By Jordan Patterson 

Beauty is in the way you carry yourself, it’s in the way your laughter dances through the air. It’s in every smile that graces your face, it radiates like beams of sunlight.

Beauty is in the gentle touch of your hand that brings warmth and comfort to a broken soul. It’s in the kindness that flows from your heart. It’s a reflection of the love and compassion that resides within you.

Beauty is the way you embrace your authentic self, when you stand up for what you believe, when you lend a helping hand to those in need. It isn’t just a physical attribute, but a state of being that comes from within you.

Beauty is reflected in the way you appreciate the world, creating laughter while finding joy in the simplest of things. It’s the way you see the world through eyes full of wonder, finding magic in the mundane and inspiration in the everyday.

Beauty is the way you always come with grace, embracing your uniqueness and the flaws that make you human. It’s in your willingness to forgive, it's your ability to see beyond imperfections.

Beauty is in the way you treat others, striving to uplift and inspire. It’s in your soul, it's in the way you love. It’s in your self-acceptance. Your beauty is very special and comes from deep within - you.
