There is often sorrow mixed in with the joy of this season. This year we may all be experiencing grief of people lost, or cherished traditions that cannot happen due to the pandemic. Kids may be grieving too but might not have the words to acknowledge it. Consider taking an opportunity to give space today to grief. Light a candle, share the things that are making you sad, say a prayer. Check out this lament psalm activity we posted during Lent this year.
Joy and sadness can exist together.
