Christmas is the saddest of times for those who grieve.
For some of us bereaved, Christmas season has become a “dark night of the soul’; “the winter of our discontent”.
Once it was a special celebration, but a death or a loss has changed this season.
While others fa la la and deck the halls, some of us are not able to find joy to the world.
I offer this prayer during this time when all is NOT merry and bright:
Source of eternal light,
Fill the hearts of all believers
With the light of faith.
May we who walk in darkness
Find hope in your ever abiding presence and know that you are with us always.
As you grieve the death of your loved one, may you feel God’s presence this Christmas Season and in the New Year.
Please see My First Christmas in Heaven to get an image of your loved one spending Christmas in Heaven and A New Year Without Your Loved One and New Year’s Resolutions For The Bereaved for help in the New Year.
