If You Think the Season’s Hard for You…


The holidays are, for some, about present love and past pain. But for others they are the reverse, a time of loneliness and isolation, of only faintly remembered love. I’ve had both, as I’m sure you have. My hope is that each of us would savor our joys this holiday season, find ease in our sorrows, and pray one another through…until there is only present love.

  2. So true. The first brick laid in a foundation seems to get lost among the other bricks. We tend to forget our usefulness. Thank your Mitch.

    Beautiful thought! How easy it is when surrounded by loved ones to forget others not so fortunate at Christmas.

  4. Ha! Love that cartoon. We’d probably all be better off if we started some Christmas group therapy and got honest about things. I saw another cartoon, someone calling a Mental Health Hospital and inquiring about family suites. Made me laugh.

    Merry Christmas,Mitch!

    A simple but impactful message, Mitch. A reminder that each of us experiences Christmas in their own way but God loves us no matter what and how we feel. Christmas.
