The holidays are quickly approaching. You've probably already noticed stores putting out decorations and even playing holiday music. You probably see some of your friends who have put up their Christmas trees and are excited about the upcoming holidays. You may have noticed many people talking about holiday shopping. Social media and news outlets are jumping at the chance to share crafts for the upcoming holidays or deals that are quickly coming.
The excitement is already beginning.... for them.
As for me, it's not so much the same. I am not looking forward to the holidays. This year is quite different than normal. I am missing one that I love. I am grieving for one that I didn't get the chance to meet. I have a feeling that this is my new normal. I will always wish our Dakota was here to share these holidays and be part of our memories.
I know that I am not the only one who will be having a hard time coping with the holidays.
Perhaps you're that person I am referring to. Or maybe it's a close family member. Maybe it's a dear friend of yours.
Maybe the loss is because of cancer.
Perhaps it is because of stillbirth or miscarriage.
Or it could be from the loss of a job.
The holiday season is hard and very emotional for many.
No matter what your situation is....
CAN I PRAY FOR YOU?
If you would like me to pray for you, please leave a comment below with as little or as much as you would like about your situation.
Then, tonight pick one person off of the list and pray for them too.
Just imagine what this world would be like if we all started to pray for each other? Wouldn't be amazing to see God's work everywhere this holiday season?
I'll be sitting down at night in my quiet bedroom while I pray for each and every one of you who post below. God Bless and I pray that each person who doesn't comment will find it in their hearts to pray for someone who did comment.
