Hi there friends,
I love love love Christmas and what it’s about; I enjoy the activities, the partying and get together, the carols and candle lit church services, I totally enjoy it all. However, amidst the cheery songs, partying and hustle and bustle, a lot of people feel the sting of loneliness more at this time of the year. It’s a season where family is emphasised and love is being spread but for people who have no family, loneliness is more apparent at what’s supposed to be the happiest time of the year. The problem is not just experienced in the elderly but in all ages. It’s important to note that loneliness is not just experienced by people who have no one, you can be in a room full of people and still feel all alone.
Wherever you are, take opportunities to connect with other people when you get them. There’s a lot of people who open their homes for Christmas and a lot of charities and churches put events on to encourage people to connect, feel loved and valued. And if you know some one who’s going to be lonely, reach out to them and lets all make it the happiest time of the year.
God’s heart for us through the holidays and all year-long is that we experience his joy and peace and walk in it every day. Won’t you receive that friend? If you are experiencing any type of isolation, loneliness or broken heartedness , I pray for you. I pray that the God of peace will comfort you and give you exceeding joy.
Merry Christmas xoxo

He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds [healing their pain and comforting their sorrow]. Ps 147:3
This gorgeous lace dress is such an excellent choice for the season. If you know me you know that I have a healthy liking (note I didn’t say obsession) for anything lace. It was a lucky find in a small boutique in Vienna and the shoes are from one of my girls, similar dresses are linked below, most of them on sale as well!
