No views nor followers to gain, just me talking. It occurs to me that there are those who are broken hearted or broken in spirit during this time of year. Those grieving the loss of family members. Families split apart for whatever reason. Those who had high hopes but were disappointed. Those experiencing one unpleasant ordeal after another such as Job in the Bible did. Those of us who love these individuals and hurt to see them in anguish.
Sadness doesn’t take a season off as I’ve learned. During this time of year we often get so wound up about what the perfect gift to get someone is. I don’t care if it sounds cliched, but one of the best gifts you can give someone is comfort. Even if you can’t lend a hand to whatever it is they are facing, the least you can do for this individual is to listen to what they have to say and speak to them in love and compassion. If they allow it, go ahead and give them company. Take a giant leap of faith further by coming to Christ in prayer about them. You may not be able to lift a finger, but our Lord can do much more than your fragile hands can. While Christ is in the works we must do our part by acting as good company and offering consolation to others. All of us- brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, relatives, and friend. We offer consolation to our peers because Christ gives us consolation in our rough times.
I love you all.
