I see you.
The one who is grieving this Christmas. You are missing someone today, someone you love. Someone who is gone from your sight.
And it hurts.
But still you sing. You buy the presents. You smile. You make the cookies. You praise God because He is worthy. And because it is Christmas.
And in an act of bravery, you put up the tree. You want it to be good for the rest of the family.
And I am so proud of you.
It cheers my heart to see you do this. You post the picture of the tree on Facebook. It adds to the warmth of the season. It ministers strength to the rest of us. In the Lord, we can do this. Together.
You give though it costs you something.
And I thank you.
