Merry Christmas, friends. My heart is very tender this Christmas season. If you long for a family of your own, my heart feels your pain. If you miss loved ones who aren’t here to celebrate the holidays with you, my heart hurts for you. If you’ve recently been laid off of work, my heart goes out to you. If you’re finding yourself traveling down a new, but scary, season in life, my heart walks right next to you. The holidays can be extremely tough. But what’s beautiful is that this season represents the birth of a Savior who came to heal those sorrows and fill us with joy. So this Christmas, I pray that you feel our Savior’s love and peace surround you in whatever it is in life that you are facing. Cling to Him and know that you are deeply, deeply loved.
