As Christmas approached I kept hearing over and over the words of the last hymn Kristin sang to us last Christmas Eve. I’d like to share them with you.

“God rest you merry gentlemen, Let nothing you dismay, Remember Christ our Saviour was born on Christmas Day, to save us all from Satan’s pow’r When we were gone astray; O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy, O tidings of comfort and joy.”

I realized today that over the last year, because of the love and prayers of family and friends, we have received God’s comfort. I must however admit that the joy is more elusive.

May God bless all of you in the coming year.
Grandma Virginia
