A long, chaotic few days and now a cluttered house – boxes and excess furniture everywhere. One would think I just moved in – or worse that a housekeeper needs to be hired and quick! (Well hired help would be nice right about now – where is that Calgon?) However in the midst of the clutter and chaos, there is peace of the spirit – a man is now not homeless!! (See “Reality or Illusion” blog below.)
In the background the sweet sounds of the Christmas Jubilee is filling the home renewing the spirit of the weary. Many are broken in the world, lost in all the confusion, but the Good News is there is REAL hope!! Real GRACE!! Real LOVE!!
The Christmas season should be a reminder for those who BELIEVE to help those in need. Do you know family, friends, or neighbors how are hurting? Perhaps they lost a loved one? Lost their job? Lost their home? Maybe they are suffering from depression or addiction.
Someone within your family or community is indeed hurting and the Christmas season creates even deeper pain for many. We are called to be the “light and salt” in this world. Bring cheer to someone who needs it and pray with them to bring this love and hope this season!!
