By all means, turn once again to your beloved, anticipated traditions if they will be comforting and grace-filled. But be courageous enough to shake things up a bit and temporarily put aside any former routines that would feel forced or uncomfortable, exhausting or just plain inappropriate for where your tender hearts find themselves.
I’d love to hear what you’ve done to navigate through difficult holidays. And if this has been a rough year, let’s talk. You’re in good company around here.
And praise God, even through life’s seismic shifts and the grief and uncertainty that follows, He remains solid and strong, tender and sweetly present.
