"Oh there's no place like home for the holidays"

Here, at home, the holidays don't look the same as they years ago; the number at the table is fewer, the pile of gifts under the tree smaller.

The loss of loved ones keeps it from being "the most wonderful time of the year" until I ponder that "better is one day in Your court than a thousand elsewhere" (Psalms 84:10 NIV).

They are home for the holidays, not in our homes, but in God's presence.

The same God who has welcomed them home will also provide grace for our every need and will someday wipe all tears from our eyes as well.

So, to you specifically this season, may God gift you with peace.
