Feeling alone? We all feel alone because in a sense we are alone. What I mean is while we all share common human experiences still each of us are unique one of a kind. The glory of Christmas is that God knows us well and still loves us! The second part of the equation is even better because this one who knows us so well loves us so much. Christmas is God being faithful to help us know love and grow in that love. The world and the darkness in it wants us to believe that life comes from being the best and having the most but Jesus showed us life is in knowing the only one who truly knows us. He is faithful when you are not and his intention is to help you believe YOU ARE LOVED! So let the words "Merry Christmas " ring in your heart with a new meaning, you are known and you are loved.
