Today's post is part of a special series of Christmas articles. Each writer was given a photo and tasked with writing a spiritually minded article inspired by that image. Sister Betty's picture is "Home for Christmas" by Norman Rockwell, 1955.
"Oh, that hug felt so good … Merry Christmas Mom and Dad!"
Family is so important, whether it’s the holidays, or just a normal visit or get-together. And hugs mean love. The picture shows smiles, happiness, and "I am so glad you are here." It evokes a lifetime of memories for me. Christmas is a time of laugher, presents, food, decorations, and the list goes on.
And then I think, “Wait a minute, what about someone who has no family?" Who then wraps them in love?
