3rd Pause In Advent 2011

 I was sorting out the old cards from last Christmas the other day when I found 2 that made me stop and think. Then my eyes began to leak - a card from a dear school friend who died in March and one from my FIL who died in January.

This weeks pause is a simple one - for all those who aren't with us this Christmas - we are still thinking about you and missing you very much.

A nice thought - my mother in law passed away in Sept this year.

I'm so glad you kept those Christmas cards. You remind me to pray for those around me who may be having difficult Christmases this year.

Thank you, Vicki - this means a lot to me, as it will to lots of other people too. Have a good week.

Thanks for reminding me to be thankful for the Christmasses past spent with those who are no longer here. I wish I had kept some cards, it's a lovely way to feel close to someone you have lost.

Hello Vicki,
I feel a little bad putting this comment on such a thoughtful post. It is sad when people we loved are no longer with us. However, I have some good news for you - you're one of my PIF winners, please could you email me your address (andamento@hotmail.co.uk) and I'll post on the gifts. Take care,
Anne.

The first Christmas without a loved one is really hard. I like to try to take a moment on Christmas Day evening to look at the stars (assuming it isn't cloudy!) and to think of those gone before. It is a happy/sad moment.

Wishing you and your loved ones a very happy Christmas and a peaceful new year. God bless.
