I am blessed by the grace of God.

Holiday joy is in the air--my home decorated for the season, children radiating their excitement and expectation, holiday parties and programs planned. But there are times when the joy of the season eludes me. Perhaps I've experienced the loss of a loved one or I am missing family members far away.

At such times I turn within and affirm the power of God's grace to bless me. It is the love of God that fills my life with joy and peace. It is the grace of God that blesses me in ways beyond what I have asked for, beyond my hopes and expectations. My faith in God invites divine grace to inspire me with love, joy and contentment this holiday season.

I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that has been given you in Christ Jesus.--1 Corinthians 1:4
