My Christmas Card To You

Arise my beloved, my beautiful one, and come. For behold, the winter has passed…

Song of Songs 2:10-11

Christmas can be painful for those waiting for Winter to pass.  If you feel sad or lonely, please know that you are not alone.  God is with you in the midst of your Winter.  Even Isaiah prophesied long before the birth of Jesus that God would come to be with us.  He did and is still with us today.

Emmanuel ~ God Is With Us

“Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Emmanuel.” Isaiah 7:14

********************Greeting*********************

Family can be both a source of healing and a reminder of your desire for your own family.  Here are some things that helped me during my Winter of singleness:

1.  Attending Christmas Eve Midnight Mass ~ So serene and filled with peace.  I remember looking up at the stars in the sky on the drive home.  Oh, Holy Night.

2.  Not isolating ~ Be around friends, both single friends and couple/family friends.  Jen writes about it beautifully here.

3.  Hope for the New Year ~  Yes, there is always hope.  I loved this post by Elynne at Ignitum Today.

4.  Conversing with our Savior ~  Tell Him everything that is on your heart.  Listen as He speaks His love to you.

If you are in the middle of your own Winter and need to vent, share or ask a question, please consider sending me an email.  I would love to provide some warmth to ease what can feel like a barren and cold Winter season.  

My message to you is this:  God is with you.  He is preparing the way.  What appears barren and cold is only to last for a season. Spring will come.

I liked cheesy music as a kid.  Even today, I like to play a certain song when we decorate our house.  Although Gregg and our son groan as soon as they hear this particular song, they humor me through it.  This is the song which reminds me of my childhood and always puts me in a good mood:

You see, the only album (yes album) I had as a tween was The Partridge Family Christmas Album.  I would play it and sing along pretending to play the tambourine.  Total dork, I know.

Speaking of my childhood, these are my favorite photos:

Yes, that is my hair which still has a mind of its own.

Merry Christmas to you, my sweet girls!  Love, Peace and Hope, Cindy
