Christmas is such a busy time of year. People rush around choosing that special gift. Music blares on the radio and inside stores. Church parties and friendly get-togethers take place in every neighborhood. There's laughter everywhere.
Please remember those who find it hard to laugh this season because of some tragedy. For many this will be the first Christmas without a loved one. I can't imagine going through such a special holiday without my husband or children.
Our friend Alvaro Garcia is still unconscious. The doctor told his family that he may come out of the coma but it could take as long as a month. Every rib was broken in the accident and he sustained multiple injuries to his head. His family must be living at the hospital, and living in fear . They will certainly experience a different kind of Christmas this year. Let's pray they feel the Spirit of Jesus healing their beloved husband and father--Alvaro.
In our house, we believe God still performs miracles. I'm praying my friend Alvaro Garcia is the recipient of a healing miracle and that he and his family will be able to sing God's praises for mending his broken body and restoring him to perfect health.
Do you know someone who will be alone this Christmas? Someone who is living a tragedy, experiencing a horror, has a broken heart? Send a special note to let them know you're thinking of them. More importantly, lift their names to our Lord Jesus Christ.
