I’ve been sadden with the loss of a dear writing friend. Diane Dean White. I'll miss her encouragement and the times she lovingly corrected me, but I know she is with the Lord.
I’ve been broken-hearted with the passing of a family member. Also, watching my mom’s health decline can often distract me from other things. Still, through it all I embrace the reason we celebrate Christmas. Jesus Christ. He’s the strength that I rely on to keep walking in joy.
I pray that each one of you will look ahead to the uncharted opportunities of 2018 with the faith that through Him we can be whole.
As the song says, “it’s the most wonderful time of the year.” No matter what, It’s the season to be grateful for all we have.
