A late evening phone call reminded me of how hard Christmas can be for those who feel they are living on the fringe. Most of us have experienced those Christmas's, those dark times of loneliness and longing, the unmet desire of love and companionship. If you are reading this and feeling those feelings, I'm sorry. I'm truly, deeply sorry. You are precious and loved. Jesus loved you all the way to the cross. You are not forsaken. You have not been abandoned. I care. Jesus cares so much more.
