Encouragement – Show You CARE
Through my work as a writer and counselor, as well as personal experiences with grief, I’ve learned that the holiday season is hard for many people. Make a difference by showing you CARE.

Connect – When someone is hurting, we often don’t know what to say or do. But even simply expressing, “I don’t know what to say but I’m sorry and I care about you,” in person or in writing can bring a lot of comfort.

Accept – When we try to help someone, it’s easy to try to direct their emotions or give advice. By accepting others and allowing them to safely express sadness, anger, fear, frustration, and other emotions in our presence, we help them heal.

Respond – You can take action by bringing a meal, babysitting, or running an errand. Or you might do something more symbolic like donating to a charity in honor of a loved one, writing down a special memory in a card, or giving a thoughtful gift.

Extend – People are often flooded with attention when a loss occurs but support usually decreases over time. By remembering and continuing to reach out, especially during the holidays and on special occasions, you can help bring encouragement and hope.

-Encouraging words from Holley Gerth. For more from Holley visit her blog, Heart to Heart with Holley.

Love Came Down E-Card Love Came Down
The world was blessed at Christmas
with a miracle of love…
a guiding star and angel choir
rejoicing from above.
They pointed to a tiny babe
within a cattle stall-
a Saviour bringing peace on earth-
the greatest gift of all.

Celebrating the humble birth of our glorious Saviour and wishing you a season full of overflowing joy and peace.
Christmas Blessings

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given…and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 KJV
