Christmas Without The Dearly Departed
The tree this year stands at 2 feet, and a tiny string of lights seems just enough. The complexity of emotions revealed at Christmas just after the death of a dear loved one can be impossible to manage. We pray for the Grace of God and hope to behave gracefully at this most bittersweet time of year.
To reconcile it all makes no sense. Be and breathe. Cry and rejoice. Trust in Him to comfort you. We can only do the best we can do, in each hour and day. Take no stock in the material and offer a smile of joy.
There is a beautiful poem below the tree:
Christmas In Heaven
