Just the other day, we had "the longest night". On Facebook, I saw several church services advertised on December 21st to minister to those who are grieving. I've read several blogs and articles that amidst the holidays, many people find themselves in difficult situations. I've seen that a little more "first hand" through my job at an area clinic...illness does not take time off.
I was also amazed that my husband and daughter both wrote about grief, being alone and hope during this time of year. (They posted within a day or so of each other and had no idea what was "percolating" with the other. God is amazing!) Both blogs are very good and I felt led to share them here.
My husband, Jonathan, wrote "Divine First Aid".
Rachel, my daughter, wrote "Christmas - A Thought".
May you be blessed this Christmas season and feel the presence of Jesus near you!
