Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

As I get older, I realize what a bittersweet time Christmas can be. My heart delights in watching the wonder and joy in my young children’s faces. And I adore their excitement. But part of me sorely misses loved ones who aren’t here this Christmas.

For many people who aren’t surrounded by the infectious joy of children – and even those who are – Christmas is downright difficult. Challenges and losses are magnified at this time of the year. I can’t even imagine what the season seems like to those living without the thrill of Christ’s birth.

Whatever condition your heart is in this Christmas, I pray that you will discover the peace and hope found only in Jesus Christ. I pray that He will transform your sadness into joy, your discontentment into a fulfilled life. I know He can. My Christmas wish is that you will let Him.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas.

Blessings to you,
