May each of you and your family have a Wonderful Blessed Christmas this year 2020.
As Charlie Brown once said,”It’s not what’s underneath the Christmas Tree, but who is around the tree that makes the memories”! It doesn’t matter what difficulties you and your family may have faced this past year in spite of the pandemic, the losses some of you have experienced with family, friends, relatives, neighbors and co-workers. Some have lost jobs and businesses, while others are struggling to survive to keep the shop or restaurant above water.
If there is one thing about this year 2020 may we ask ourselves, and ask God, what have I learned from these losses and trials? Have they made me stronger and wiser or has it brought deep brokenness in my life and family.
I know what is is to go through hard times and I have learned that tough times never last but tough people do!
Even in our weakest moments and brokenness, God is there listening and waiting. Christmas gives us that hope in the midst of the darkest times. This passage has been impressed in my soul this season and I can’t seem to escape it.
“The people who walk in darkness will see a great light. For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine. For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace”. Isaiah 9:2, 6
There is always hope even in the most challengingof times. When Job lost everything He looked to the God of Hope and trusted Him, come hell or highwater!
As the three wise men sought the star of Bethlehem Hope rose up within their soul. God sent His Son (The ‘Christ’ in Christmas) into this world to give us hope. God in the flesh born as a baby in a lowly manger to give us the gift of salvation, the gift of Life, and the gift of hope.
In all sincerity from my heart and our family to yours: We wish you a joyous Christmas celebration this day.
Merry Christmas 🎄 and we pray you have the most Blessed, Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year in 2021
The Provitola Family❤
