Christmas Losses

Christmas Losses - or Christmas Gains?

It's that time of year again - Christmas!  Twinkling tree lights. Gifts galore stacked carefully beneath the tree, and the feeling of goodwill pervades the air. Online shopping, gift wrapping and FedEx and UPS and USPS deliveries! Such fun!

That's how most families feel. And it's a good feeling.

A Time Of Sadness ...

But for many it's also a time of sadness. The realization after a loved one has passed that they won't be here this Christmas ...

... The tragic loss of life through the merciless killings perpetrated by Islamic Extremists upon innocent Americans and folk around the world ...

... And the heavy weight upon the shoulders of those unable to find better-paying jobs and having to settle for what they can get, usually working two part-time jobs to make up for lost income.





Christmas Losses - It's A Tough Time Of Year ...

The day before Thanksgiving, my father passed away at age 87. Instead of being morose at the Thanksgiving table, our family knew that dad would want us to remember all the good times, and to be thankful that he wasn't in any more pain. He was at peace.

While the following days were, and still are, going by in a blur, we're getting through them.

One day at a time.

What must be particularly hard is for those who lose loved ones at the hands of terrorists or other tragic accidents. It's the sudden loss that no doubt is mind-numbing. Our hearts go out to the victims and the folk left behind to pick up the pieces.

We knew dad was failing, so when the end did come, it wasn't a shocking surprise. It's a huge loss, to be sure, but one we can better cope with as we'd had some time to digest the likely outcome. I know it's gonna take a long time for things to return to normal; whatever 'normal' is. We actually can't ever return to normal; we all change, things evolve.

So to all those out there who have also lost a loved one, we say we know what you're going through and we know that time will help heal the gaping hole left in our hearts.

Pray for peace.
