It is a special time of the year. Christmas is upon us. I absolutely love Christmas; I love everything about it. It is a special time because it is about Christ and His selfless expression of love in His desire to rescue humanity from sin. We rejoice for who Christ is and what He has done for us! But I know this time of year can also present its own unique challenges. For some people, it is hard to go through the holiday season because of a lost loved one. For others, the challenge of this time of year is that it is a deeply reflective time and they are focused on obstacles to overcome or goals to accomplish.
