This Christmas

As a child, I would quizzically watch my Grandmother cry during the Holidays. I never really understood how she could be so content and yet sad all at once.

This year, as we celebrate with those we love here, we miss those who have gon.e before and long for the day when we will all be united.

And in the midst of it all, we pause to reflect on the goodness of God. He is truly the reason we can celebrate. Merry Christmas to all our loved ones, near & far.

  1. Christmas can be a bittersweet time. I miss my Mom every Christmas. Yet I feel joy experiencing Christmas with my children. Many complex and contradictory emotions all coming forth at the same time. Have a great Christmas! Someday all our loved ones will meet and celebrate in the same space and time.
