When most of us think of the colors of Christmas we think of red, green, white, gold and maybe silver. I was reading “Our Daily Bread” recently and ran across the title “Blue Christmas.” Blue is my favorite color and many people decorate in blues, but this title is not referring to the color, but the mood.
When we are “blue” we experience feelings such as sadness, grief, despair, hopelessness and loneliness. These feelings visit those who are ill, having family problems, financial worries, and especially those who are bereaved. Facing Christmas and New Years without your beloved family member is difficult and very painful at best. It is normal to feel “blue” under these circumstances and it is ok to cry, express your sadness and, or retreat into solitude, for a season.
Regardless of how we feel, we need to maintain hope and know that “trouble don’t last always.” It helps to believe that “this too will pass” and to take to heart the scripture that reads “weeping may endureth for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” If you are feeling blue this Christmas, lean on your faith in God, family and friends.
The following poem comforted me when my dear Uncle Cliff died and I felt “blue.”
May the words of this poem give you hope.
My First Christmas In Heaven
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below
With tiny lights, like Heaven’s stars reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away that tear,
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear,
But the sounds of music can’t compare with the Christmas Choir here.
I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring,
For it is beyond description to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me; I see pain in your heart.
But I am not so far away, we really aren’t apart.
So be happy for me dear ones, you know I hold you dear.
And be glad I’m spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I sent you each a special gift from my heavenly home above.
I sent you each a memory of my undying love.
After all, love is a gift more precious than pure gold.
It was always most important in the stories Jesus told.
Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to do.
For I can’t count the blessings or love He has for each of you.
So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear.
Remember, I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
