CHRISTMAS ALONE . . .
It's the time of year where thoughts turn to decorating, cooking and shopping for those special family gatherings. It can be easy to lose track of the real reason of this Christmas season.
There are many who celebrate Christmas alone. This may be the first time, or an odd set of circumstances this year. Some are single persons living alone, some are widows or widowers and some are separated or divorced.
For those who are alone, Christmas can be a blessing. The solitude we have can offer us the grace to receive the gift of Christ's coming in a very special way. We may be tempted to be discouraged or down in our aloneness. It is a temptation to turn our focus in on ourselves rather than to let ourselves be contemplative at the time of Christmas.
May I offer a suggestion? As Christmas approaches, please take time to read from the Bible the story of Our Savior's birth. And listen to the content of the carols that remind us of the emptiness of a world without Jesus and the joy of His birth.
Let us share with others the joy of His living presence in our lives today and the peace and the joy He brought to the world.
There are so many ways we can share the real meaning of Christmas. Little deeds do count.
