Happy Holidays 2020

This year, the Holidays may look a little different for us all

We may not be able to see our family, friends, and loved ones and our celebrations may be a little simpler. This can bring feelings of sadness, disappointment, or loneliness. I recently read the following words in a book titled, “Looking For Lovely” by Annie F. Downs:

“Transformation and suffering [come] in a pair.”
“God has something for you here.”
“I need beauty. I need to see the lovely in my every day.”
“Hope is an expensive commodity, not easily won, always fought for, and the result of a process that may take some time.”
“If you want to be full of hope, you have to suffer a bit. You have to find purpose in the suffering so you don’t give up.”
“… be branded by perseverance.”
I pray this Holiday season and year to come you will find hope, perseverance, grace, transformation, beauty, and the lovely in your every day.
