I love this time of the year: the colorful lights, joyful sounds of caroling, and happy laughter of children. I look forward to the birth of our Savior.
Unfortunately, mixed with the joy is a sadness.The tragedy in Connecticut lingers in our hearts and minds, casting a shadow over the season.
Twenty children, eagerly awaiting Christmas, taken so suddenly and unnecessarily. My heart cries for all of us, for we are all affected in one way or another. My solace is the thought that these young ones are in Heaven, celebrating with Jesus this year.
I pray you will allow this thought and the Joy of Christmas lighten the darkness and bring you a measure of peace.
