This Christmas I've been so aware of how incredibly blessed I am to be surrounded by wonderful family and friends who care for me in beautiful ways. Yet I know how easy it is to still feel alone, even in the midst of family gatherings and holiday parties. As this Christmas day is almost over (yikes, it's later than I thought!) I just rest in the presence of a God who came to dwell among the people he loved. The son of God became a man, a humble servant, and conquered death upon a lonely tree so that we might not know the dull ache of loneliness any longer. This is the glory we have seen and celebrate!
