While Christmas mostly related to all the cheers, joy and festivity, there may be “mourning in your merry”..
Last year in early December my grandfather in Indonesia passed away, days leading after that there were many tears and loss feelings. Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Chinese New Year celebration after then will never be the same (the whole big family usually gathered together in his house during one of these times), and small things can bring back my memories with him.
Christmas may bring this kind of sorrowful memories. And to those who have felt the loss, I’d like to wish you Christ’s peace and comfort to be in your heart. In time, mourning can still turn into merry. Like there was glory waiting for Jesus after the agony of death at the cross.
Nevertheless, I wish you a Merry Christmas to a near and far family, friends, and other “virtual/insta friends” from around the world! ☺️
May there is room in our heart for Him 🌟
