This year has been difficult for everyone, but there is still hope. In John’s gospel 1:5 we read, The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
I prepared a digital Christmas card before the UK government announced a tightening of restrictions over Christmas. Now people are only allowed to meet on one day, forcing any plans for extended visits to be cancelled.
My card is a reminder that Christmas is still about the positive aspects of God’s gifts to us including Love, Joy and Peace.
Whatever your circumstances at this time, I pray that you will be blessed with a knowledge of the Giver of all good gifts.
The picture is one I have coloured from Images of Joy by Jacqui Grace, published by Just cards Direct.
(In 2013 I wrote a Christmas Eve prayer, which is still relevant today.)
