Daily Graces Return #14. This Christmas is mixed with some melancholy. Attending church this morning made me realize it may be years before I am back in California for another Christmas. We are anticipating next Christmas in Colorado! And though we hate the idea of leaving many beloved family members and friends in California, the fire changed our future in ways we never would have guessed last Christmas. Yet God’s gift is everlasting and as it says “For God so loved the WORLD…”, we know He will be with us wherever we celebrate Christmas.
