I can’t speak for you, but this time of year can be a challenge for me. It is the most likely time of year I fall victim to the “crud” which I presently have . . . aaaaachoo! I stress about wanting to make it the perfect Christmas, and I remember loved ones from the past as well as the present . . . memories. We aren’t always able to hold those dear ones close to us in body and hence the challenge, but they are always a part of us and since the Kingdom of God is at hand, we remain together with them always. Delightful thought, that! So, here is a collage with a bit of the past, present, and future of my life and heart, but it’s not complete because all of you are in my heart as well!
