I am spending this week with my parents and missing my sisters and their families. That is because they are important people in my life and after spending most of our Christmas Eve’s together, it is still weird that we don’t anymore because we are spread so far apart.

But thanks to technology, we do get to see each other and talk to one another and of course text, so we don’t feel so far apart.

I used to sing this song with my middle sister, Stephanie, and it is a very precious Christmas song to me.

I pray that you will hold your family close – even if you are far apart – this Christmas, and hold your Savior even closer.

Merry Christmas!
