God will heal your broken heart and bind your wounds. Psalm 147:2-5

Holidays bring excitement and joy, as we welcome our family’s home. This year will look different for those who won’t be spending Christmas with loved ones this year.   

Loss makes us weary and sad. It’s hard when wounds grow deep. But God knows the depth of our pain. He leads us closer to Jesus and helps us witness the compassion of His love.   
Those who have left in the arms of the angels have earned a wonderful reward. They are held in heaven’s holiness, but they will ALWAYS be part of us. 
God will replace sorrow with STRENGTH and provide courage to be reminded we're not alone. He will arm us with everything we need to TRUST in the power of His mercy and grace. 

The baby born to a hurting world will shine the light of love and fill us with HOPE in His presence.  When we're sad and miss those, who are no longer with us, JESUS will bring PEACE at Christmas and EVERY day of our lives. 

“Those we love don’t go away. They walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near; still loved, still missed and very dear.” 

Dear God, Thank you for Jesus! Thank you for moments to be filled with compassion, comfort and LOVE. Arm us with strength and bandage the wounds of sadness as we remember those we love. Thank you for loving us through grief and helping us welcome the GIFT of a grateful heart. It is what will hold us together on Christmas and EVERY day. Thank you, Lord! Amen
