Tea & Empathy for Writers
December 14, 2018
As the chaos in the world seems to consume us at times, and now the holiday season has taken control of our lives, some of us are flooded with joyous celebration. Others are immersed in a flood of pain and emptiness for lost opportunities, lost people, lost pets. I lost far too many friends and pets this year. Sadly, I witnessed others lose family and friends that submerged them in a sea of pain and grief. The blessings of this season are highly emotional on many levels.
I pray for all of you that the peace Christmas offers will calm your hearts and give you hope. I encourage you to light a candle in memory of those you’ve lost. Light a candle every day for every one of them bringing them closer to you and transposing the darkness by illuminating your world.
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and ignite in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit that You shall renew the face of the earth. Amen
