The Season to be Jolly

It’s the season to be jolly.  That’s how the song goes anyway. If that is true, why am I crying as I write this?

You see, I am missing my beloved a bit more than usual today.  Funny isn’t it? Nothing has changed really. And mostly I am O.K.

However, today I made myself a new housecoat. I’ve used Ron’s John Deere one for the last three years, but it is getting so thin. I didn’t want it to totally wear out so I made myself a new one.

I guess it seems silly to you. After all, it is there if I want to wear it again. Thankfully, God understands and comforts.

But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies. For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men. (Lamentations 3:32-33, KJV)

Prayer – Lord, thank you for understanding our humanness. Amen
