Merry Christmas to All

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

Yes, friends, this is my first Christmas without my dear husband, Will, and our sons and I will spend Christmas together. Hug your loved ones please.

((((((Dear Terra)))))) I am cyber-hugging you, I love you, and my heart aches for you. I know just how you are feeling right now, as this is my 5th Christmas without my dear husband. I am glad you have your sons with you. Let the love you shared with your dear husband and their father fill your hearts and surround you. May God's love, peace and strength be with you all.

Love, hugs & prayers ~ FlowerLady

My thoughts and prayers are with you and all those who have lost loved ones this year throughout the world but they are still here....standing close by to give you comfort. You may not see him but I am sure you feel his presence at times. He would want you to celebrate as you always do and include him in it all.....he's only a heartbeat away. I may be alone physically but I think I have a houseful of people I've loved that have passed on and come to visit over the holidays! Rejoice in the wonderful memories and laughter you shared. Bless you and your family and may you have peace in your hearts this Christmas.

Glad you have your sons with you for Christmas. I just heard someone say on the radio here today (in a very good program about life and death, grief and hope) that the best way to deal with grief is to let our feelings mix as they will, there's no right or wrong. (Like one can be sad about one thing and glad about something else at the same time.) ♥

You have been in my thoughts today.
Two other friends of mine are facing the first Christmas without their husbands also.
May God comfort you.

I thought of you Terra and how hard it must have been spending Christmas without your husband. I can only hope he was there alongside you in spirit.

I wasn't able to wish you a Merry Christmas, but you have been in my thoughts and prayers these days. I can only imagine how difficult this holiday season is for you right now. So thankful your sons were able to be with you. Praying for you as you embark on the New Year, facing new challenges...but never forget that our Lord, "Emmanuel", is with you, every day. You are never alone...and He has promised that He will never leave us nor forsake us. So face the future with faith and hope and trust in His Word and precious promises. (((hugs))) and prayers to you today my friend.

Aw, gees, this must have been a really hard Christmas. I am so sorry. I hope that you made it through okay as a family, and garnered strength from being together. I am sure Will was with you though.

Terra thank you for commenting on my fav books of 2016 on my blog. Reading your blog I see you have very recently lost your hubby. What a big event to deal with. My heart goes out to you.

Sending a belated Merry Christmas wish to you...I haven't had a minute to post. I know you could need a big hug right now and I wish I were there to give you one.

Here's hoping for a happy(ier) New Year. I pray your heart begins to mend more with each day.
