Let your heart be light.

Sometimes it's hard to be happy during Christmas. We miss our families. Our friends. Our memories. We don't always know what comes next. New years can bring new hurts. New disappointments.

In the past few months I have dealt with things that have made my heart heavy. Maybe you have too. Know that we all deal with these things. We all get hurt. We all get let down. We all get left out.

Let your heart be light. You have a choice.

Know that we don't have to feel like this forever. Know that love and hope and peace and joy really do exist. God, give us comfort when our hearts are heavy. Give us love when we feel unloved. Let us see hope when life seems hopeless. Let us have peace in chaos. Let us see the joy in who you are.

It's Christmas time. Let your heart be light.

"Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord."
- Luke 2: 10-11
