When Christmas is Cold Inside

empty, cold, barren, lonely

Barren, lonely, cold, lost. The Christmas season, though usually a very joyous time of year, can often be an extremely difficult time of year for those who:

1)      Had a loved one or family member die (especially since the last Christmas);

2)      Experienced a recent miscarriage;

3)      Are struggling to get pregnant or adopt (and start or add to their family);

4)      Lost a job (or have been unemployed).

This is my prayer for you . . .

 Remember that after winter comes spring . . .

snowy day, narnia, winter in woods

Clouds have silver linings…

gray skies, sun through clouds, gray clouds, rays, sun rays clouds, dreary sky

 Flowers can bloom in difficult places . . .

Weeping may last through the night BUT . . .

weeping, night, joy, morning, sunset, sunrise

And no matter how deep the pain, God can turn this trial into a blessing (in your life and in the lives of those around you). . .
