Title: (Inspiration) The holiday season is here

The holiday season is here
By: Clara Hinton

The holiday season is here, and for many this is a time of special family gatherings, festive occasions, and getting together for meals and laughter.  For others, though, this is a season of sadness, tears, and sorrow.  When a loved one is no longer with us, we feel the emptiness even more during those special days called "family days."

Gathering the strength to get through the holidays can be difficult.  At times, we feel overwhelmed and so lonely that we think we will not be able to make it through the day.  Every minute is stained by a tear falling for our heart.

God, in His infinite wisdom, seems to know exactly the right moment to place hope in our lives.  He knows when we need to hear His voice whispering in our ear that He loves us.  He knows when to send the rainbow to paint the sky so that we will be reminded of His promises.  He knows when to give us rest from our heavy burdens by sending a friend to give us a strong shoulder and a listening ear.  He knows when to give our weary souls rest from the heaviness
of grief by sending the bright sunshine to warm our souls.

Don't worry about facing the holidays alone because you have a Friend that is always with you.  He is your Father, your Shepherd, and your Friend.  His promises are true, and he cannot leave you because you are made in His image.
And, above all else, He is your hope!  --Clara Hinton
