For some of us there is a part of Christmas that may bring a tear to our eye or a sadness to our heart. Some of us may have lost a loved one during the Christmas season and others are celebrating their first Christmas without the presence a beloved member of the family. Today is the 8th anniversary of my father's passing. Dad worked for the Frisco railroad for forty-two years and this ornament was a part of a wreath at his memorial service. There is a peace that comes from knowing where my father is now. He acknowledged Christ as his Savior and he is spending eternity is a place prepared for him by Christ ("...I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also [John 14:2-3]). Still, there are days when I miss my father dearly and during this season of the year I wonder what is Christmas in Heaven like? Have a blessed day.
Christmas is a time that I especially miss those I have lost.ReplyDelete
We can focus on the joys of Christmas past.Delete
I too remember those that have left us. The circle of life is most apparent during the holiday.ReplyDelete
I've not heard this video before. Made me very misty eyed.
Have a blessed day, my friend. ☺
This song is new to me as well. Brought back a lot of fond memories with family from the past.Delete
