Alone -- 11 days 'til Christmas

"Alone," 5 x 7 #watercolor card
It's easy to feel alone in seasons like this.
The Psalmist prayed long ago, "Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted." (25:16)
For those who are not alone, or lonely, 'tis the season to reach out like that lone star of the Gospels, to try to bring warmth, and the spirit of Christmas to those who have not.
Let the stars remind us of that.
