If You’re Missing Someone This Christmas

I’m not going to lie ... Christmas really hurts this time because you’re not here to celebrate with me. Tears fill my eyes and memories flood my mind as I place your ornament upon our tree. Although this year I have a broken heart, it gives me hope and joy as I remember where you are. You’re with the Son of God! You’re with the Prince of Peace! You’re with the one we’re celebrating, and that thought amazes me. Sometimes I still break down, grieving that we’re apart. But the sweetest gift is knowing where you are.

Ephesians 2:8 – “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God:” Romans 10:9-10 – “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” 1Thessalonians 4:13-14 – “But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.”

Got your picture in a frame, and a stocking with your name. God knows it’s been hard letting go. I can’t bring you back, but I’ll see you again and oh, that thought is healing to my soul. I’ll miss making angels with you in the snow … I guess instead you will be singing with them all around God’s throne. And I know the Christmas season was your favorite time of year ... you loved to help us decorate our tree. But now that you’re with Jesus, I can’t imagine how you feel, because He’s the One who bled and died upon the tree for you and me.
