One week today it will be Christmas Day, when for many of us we will spend the day celebrating Christmas with our family.

Although Christmas can be a time of happiness and togetherness for everyone, that can’t be further from reality for many.

Today I’d therefore like you to take a few minutes out of your preparations for Christmas, and spend a few moments thinking about those who will find this Christmas difficult. e.g.:

  • the unemployed
  • the ill, and their families/friends
  • the lonely
  • the homeless
  • the elderly
  • those who have been bereaved, particularly those bereaved in the last year
  • those separated by many miles, from loved ones this Christmas

If you are finding/will find this Christmas difficult, I pray you will some happiness this Christmas.

If you know of anyone who is struggling/will struggle this Christmas, please pray for them that they will find peace and happiness this Christmas.
