As Christmas Day draws near I find there are two shades dwelling in my heart. One is the joy of celebrating my Savior’s birth. The other is the sadness of no family or community to celebrate with. I do, however, have a Light that shines on the darker shade of my heart…

grateful for the storm
veiling the inner cloudburst
enveloped in Love

although I have sorrow I can still experience the joy given through the gift of grace!
