For me, Christmas is such a joyful time. It’s a time of giving and receiving. I time to see loved ones who live far away and to eat lots of food. It’s the time of year that memories are made of. And most of all, it’s a time to give thanks for the greatest gift of all, Jesus Christ.
There will be some years when it will be harder to find joy during the holiday season. I’ll be filled with loneliness and wishing things were different. I’ll be wishing that my husband was close by my side, instead of in another country. I’ll be wishing for so many things, and holding on to the memories of years like this.
So for today, I will chose to find joy in the simple things such as hot tea, Christmas lights, presents, and a husband who loves me. Tomorrow is in God’s hands.
