This morning I read a beautiful post about how we are sometimes not ready for Christmas. The holidays can be so sad and depressing and hard for so many people in so many ways. Sometimes the sadness is so overwhelming that like a blanket it covers and envelops me, almost suffocating me, even though the sadness is not my own. I cannot fully grasp how debilitating it can be for the one whose sad floats off and falls onto me. Yet in Christ there is hope. For the sad at Christmas, I hope this post encourages you as it did me.
