This year was the first time in my life that I’ve spent Christmas away from my family.
At first I felt somewhat apprehensive, but it turned out to be a wonderful experience. Away from the usual hustle and bustle of annual traditions, I was able to focus on the true meaning of Christmas; God’s greatest gift to the world – the birth of Jesus Christ.
No matter how far from home you may be right now, remember that your Heavenly Father has promised to be with you always – to the end of the age. May God bless you richly this Christmas and in the year to come!
