Devotions from Judy’s heart

As we celebrate Christmas, our focus is on the greatest treasure ever given, Jesus. When I look back on previous Christmas times, perhaps it is in our losses that we are made more aware of our wondrous Treasure. I think back of  a loved one, going through a divorce, who came to spend Christmas with us in California. I went with him to our candlelight service while Al stayed home with baby Mark. Christ was so present even as my heart was hurting for this  loved one who was in pain. And another Christmas when my brother John was dying, we were all made so aware of God’s comforting love as we sang carols and shared how much he meant to us. And  last Christmas was our first one without my dad who was spending it in glory! And this Christmas there is great sorrow in our whole nation over all the children who were innocent victims in the Newtown shooting. But in every situation any of us are in, He is there and promises to be with us always! “He who promised is faithful.” Heb 10:23 Amen!
