The older I get, the better I understand the term “bittersweet”. Christmas is such a sweet and precious time of celebration and remembrance; however, some of those memories bring an ache and a longing to my heart. It seems as though my spirit sings “Joy to the world!” one minute and “You give and take away” the next. To everything there is a season.
May this season bring us true joy even while we experience great sorrow.
