Blue Christmas

As Christmas is approaching, not everyone is celebrating, or the feeling can be bittersweet.  We remember friends, colleagues and family members that are no longer with us or close.  The happiness of the season for me is often edged with sadness, as I remember people and places that are gone from my life. I miss them.

Other people are attending funerals, dealing with dire medical news, coping with unemployment, broken relationships, depression, loneliness and any number of personal challenges.

As a way to bring people comfort and hope, some churches sponsor a “Blue Christmas” service.  This service is for people who are hurting, grieving or feeling a sense of isolation during the holidays. I think this is a tremendous support, since it is an additional burden to try to feel festive when you are really feeling blue.
