As we celebrate and welcome the Newborn King some have to say good-bye to a loved one. In the excitement of preparations and joy, there is sorrow and solemn quiet.
Busy shoppers walking with their packages past the funeral home, draped in snow and sadness. No more Christmases together, an empty place at the table.
This is why God came to earth: to live with us, to die for us, so we can know Him and His promise-this is not the end! In Him we will have everlasting life! We will sit, once again, all together at the banquet table with our Savior and Lord!
For God so loved the world, He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him will not die, but have eternal life. John 3:16
May you know and remember the true meaning of Christmas now, and all through the year.
