What’s lost can be found, we’re told.
Hope. Love. Trust.
But what about things that are irreplaceable? A lost loved one, a treasured photo, mementos lost in a flood or fire.
Dayle Vickory of Orange Park, Florida, remembers a picture of her daughter taken on Christmas Day when she was about three.
She lost her daughter and treasured that photograph as a connection between them. She was nearly destroyed by the loss of her daughter, she says, but that photograph kept her going. Then she lost the photograph, too.
It was heartbreaking for Dayle … until one Christmas, several years later, when she opened a book to find the picture of her daughter inside.
Taken on Christmas Day and given back to her on Christmas Day, a gift that became doubly precious to her, as if she had a little bit of her daughter back with her.
That should be our Christmas Day every year, a time to reconnect with Jesus and become reacquainted with his love for us.
John 1:14 reminds us of God's love for us:
“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
Let Christmas be about Christ this year. He’s the one who started it all.
