Christmas Day was actually easy. I wasn't surprised. But the day after....when everyone went home and the hustle and bustle was gone and the quiet seeped in....that's when it was hard.
Why didn't they call us?
Why didn't they come here?
Why did this have to happen?
The battle against anger and bitterness.
The bad dream that will not end, the truth that continues to sting, the child that will be forever missed.
The comfort of Jesus who reaches us....and fills our every longing.
God WITH us.
This is the promise we cling to, this is the promise of Christmas!
