An Undercurrent of Sadness (in the holidays)

December 1, 2014

There is an undercurrent of sadness in the holidays. It is not all consuming but it is undeniably there. The holidays often serve to remind us of what has been lost. It is best described as an empty chair at an otherwise bountiful table. The challenge before us is both to focus upon the blessings represented by the table itself and to lavish our love upon those sitting at the still occupied chairs. My prayers are with all who will embrace that challenge this year.
