Thinking of Others at Christmas.

Version: RSV
1Cor 13:13
So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

I was thinking about Christmas and how lonely it is for some people. In fact, they say it is the loneliest time of the year for some.

If we know someone who is alone I think it'd be good to invite them to be with our families as we get together. Maybe if that person isn't able to get out then perhaps we could visit and maybe take them a meal. It might be the inspiration and uplifting that a person needs this Christmas.

Certainly worth thinking about neighbors or anyone we know who we could reach out to. Just my thoughts today.........

You are so right. Even little things can make a big difference to someone. Depression and suicide rates are higher at this time of year.

Those were well chosen words Rachel, and a good idea. There are so many who need the gift of friendship.

This is a beautiful post, Rachel. IT applies to any religion or anytime of year, like when a new neighbor moves in, someone at work or friend of a friend is going through a tough time, etc. This is heartfelt and kind to reach out. I learned, growing up, to always have extras at our table who had "no one." Their company filled us with joy and new friendships arose. :) Your heart is in the right place.
