One Day At A Time: Christmas is not that dreadful anymore thanks to Bro. Jun Banaag’s radio show

#latepost Chanced upon a nightly prayer radio show (Bro. Jun Banaag aka Doctor Love Radio Show) last month which quickly became a habit. Aside from the prayers (devotion to Padre Pio and Mother Theresa), they played Christmas carols…yes, in June! Little did I know that it was also therapeutic. You see, after losing my sister last May, any celebration or holiday for that matter seemed like torture for me. Especially Christmas, I dread it and planned to take a trip somewhere, anywhere or hide in a place where there's no trace of it. After a few weeks of weekday nightly prayers, Christmas does not seem that dreadful at all. Even took an early annual trip to decor suppliers for some inspiration. One step at a time, one day at a time with God's grace. 🙏🏼❤️🎄🎅🏼🙏🏼❤️🎄🎅🏼🙏🏼❤️🎄🎅🏼 #sentimentalme #ThePromise #onestepatatime #onedayatatime #ThankYouLord
