This has been a rough year for everyone. Between the COVID-19 virus and a hard fought, take-no-prisoner election, we in the United States are exhausted. Add in social justice unrest and the whole world has been through a test.

Usually, we can look at Christmas as a time to gather with friends and family and get a boost, but the virus has disrupted that. This year, we are looking at minimum if any travel and much smaller groups. Zoom is becoming the norm.

In my post this month on The Write Conversation website, It’s Not About What We Don’t Have, I look at all that we are missing this season, but also what we still have to look forward to. There is still hope. Multiple vaccines are their way. We are learning new ways to cope and handle this disease.

And God is still watching over everything. The message that the Babe in the Manger brought us over two thousand years ago is still as true .

In It’s Not About What We Don’t Have, I discuss how this Christmas may look a little. You can read the post here.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

And let me wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year. Next year will be different from any we have ever had. It’s important that each of us take the responsibility to share the light with each other.

Merry Christmas.
