Christmas Apart

Victorian009This is a very different Christmas for us this year.  It is once again “just the two of us.”  All of our children are stateside.  I’ve posted this quote before, but it bears repeating.

*****

“On my second Christmas Day, apart in measure from my dear family, I found comfort in “taking” a new carol, which, unlike most carols, would look not only at Bethlehem, but also at Calvary. There are times when nothing holds the heart but a long, long look at Calvary. How very small anything that we are allowed to endure seems beside that Cross.”

–Rose from Brier, by Amy Carmicheal, pg. 82
