Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year! We get to enjoy delicious food, beautiful decorations and of course time with family and friends. It truly is magical!
But I’m also reminded not everyone is happy this time of the year. Many have lost loved ones and are spending their first Christmas without them.
Although this will be my fifth Christmas without my Mom, I still miss her. Mom made Christmas special!
I miss shopping with her, I miss going to Christmas plays with her, baking with her and just spending time together. I have so many wonderful Christmas memories that I’ll always cherish!
Thankfully, my best memories of Christmas with my Mom are of us celebrating the birth of Jesus.
So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them. Luke 2:4-7
Today, I’m praying for those who’ve lost loved ones. I’m praying they will feel His peace and be comforted this Christmas season.
Do you know someone who has lost a loved one this year?
This is one of my favorite Christmas songs. Enjoy!
Have a blessed day!
