This Christmas my heart feels heavier for others' loss than our own. Knowing what agony that first Christmas without Caleb was and knowing that so many others are going to experience that this year just leaves me feeling drained, sad, angry, and longing. Longing for , the one who will wipe away every tear. Loving this song this advent season. I never paid attention to the lyrics until this year. Its so fitting for where my heart is. Longing for a savior, for someone who will help save us from the darkness. Praying for all those families who have someone missing.
"Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And deaths dark shadows put to flight....
And give them victory over the grave"
