Reflecting on Past Christmases--some Joy, some Sadness
Thursday, December 17, 2020
This has been a hard year for families. Ours has been touched by three deaths this year. This most recent (nephew-44) two weeks ago. So, I have reflected on past Christmases. I have a picture of the nieces and nephews in my Mom's small home many years ago. Two of those boys passed this year. Just found out that a friend of ours passed away in October and another one passed this week. This pandemic keeps us from properly saying our good-byes...Though our nephew who passed in February was before the virus pandemic and we were able to meet with family and friends and say our good-byes.
I have heard it said a few times OR more, people are anxiously awaiting the end of this year. No matter what comes, I have decided to rejoice in my Lord for He knows all about our troubles, our heart's desires and our hopes. I find myself saying, "There is only God to talk to about everything that besets me. Also, 'though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him."
I believe this is a season of miracles and He knows we need a few. It is in His hands what He will do. To God be the glory!!!
Merry Christmas to All, and to All a good night!
