Christmas is one happy occasion that people look forward to. But when you’re spending it alone, can it still be merry?
One Christmas Eve, I was alone in my room. My husband and I just got separated and my kids were with him that night celebrating. Lonely and depressed, I got on my knees and prayed to God. At that moment, it felt like I was crying on His lap and I heard Him say to me, “Malu, why are you crying? While everyone is out celebrating Christmas, you are here with the Celebrant Himself? What could be better than that?”
Since then, I looked forward to Christmas Eves alone with Jesus. It is truly the best time of the year!
