The First Days of Christmas

My Take

DiVoran Lites


My child, I have restored your inheritance. I have chosen you and given you every skill, power, and healing you need. You are my prize, my pleasure, and my portion. I have your destiny and its timing in my hands. There’s a time to live and a time to die. I have all your life on my schedule, and the schedule will not be changed. I take you to many pleasant places, body, soul, and spirit. 

When you have problems or questions, I am here to solve them. You have privileges beyond your highest dreams. I give you the best of Everything.

 Paraphrase of Psalm 16:6

Oh, thank you, Lord, You are the best of Everything. 

I have a planter full of Thanksgiving cactus. I am glad to have them now in order to enjoy them before Christmas. My daughter showed me on her phone that there are three different kinds of holiday cactus: Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving. The leaves tell which one the cactus is.


DiVoran has been writing for most of her life. Her first attempt at a story was when she was seven years old and her mother got a new typewriter. DiVoran got to use it and when her dad saw her writing he asked what she was writing about. DiVoran answered that she was writing the story of her life. Her dad’s only comment was, “Well, it’s going to be a very short story.” After most of a lifetime of writing and helping other writers, DiVoran finally launched her own dream which was to write a novel of her own. She now has her Florida Springs trilogy and her novel, a Christian Western Romance, Go West available on Amazon. When speaking about her road to publication, she gives thanks to the Lord for all the people who helped her grow and learn.  She says, “I could never have done it by myself, but when I got going everything fell beautifully into place, and I was glad I had started on my dream.”

    I have seen several people showing their flowering cactus this winter and they all have an abundance of blooms. Must be a bumper year for them.
