May Your Christmas be Bright!

December 24, 2020

Merry Christmas Eve, dear friends. While our celebrations may all be a little lackluster this year, I hope and pray that the joy of the season still shines bright in our hearts. Starting the minute I hit “publish” on this post, I’ll be taking off a few days for this sacred holiday. But first I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to wish you a blessed holiday and to express my gratitude for you.

Merry Christmas

I am so very grateful, not just for the career this blog has afforded me, but for the community you have helped me to build here. Thank you for showing up here, sharing your comments and letting me into your lives. I count you as friends. And because so many of you have become “regulars” here, I’ve come to feel even more responsible for bringing you quality content, showing up regularly, providing something of value in the blessing and serving your needs instead of just my own. You’ve stretched me. And that’s a good thing. Thank you.

Christmas can be a difficult time for various reasons any year. Even without the constraints of this pandemic, you could be struggling to feel the joy. So please know that you are on my heart this week. Whether you’ve lost a loved one, you’re separated from the ones you love or you’re dealing with the ravages of this pandemic, I’m praying for you to have peace, hope, love and joy. I was reminded in my Bible reading this morning that nothing can separate us from the love of God. Please take comfort in that promise.

James and I wish you and your families a merry and bright Christmas. You are a blessing to us!

Blessed for My Day

Now there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon, and this man was righteous and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And he came in the Spirit into the temple, and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him according to the custom of the Law, he took him up in his arms and blessed God and said,

“Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace,
    according to your word;
for my eyes have seen your salvation
that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples,
a light for revelation to the Gentiles,
    and for glory to your people Israel.” ~ Luke 2:25-32

Spread the love
xoxo, Kay

  19. Merry Christmas, Kay! I am so glad that I found you this year. I especially appreciate your faith and that you share that faith with us. Your commitment to read through the Bible in 2021 has inspired me to do the same! A part of me has always wanted to do that and I’ve felt some guilt about not doing that, so now I am committed to reach that goal.

    Of course, I also enjoy all the fashion inspiration you share with us!
    Thank you so much for all that you do for us!

  20. Someone once said be careful in your walk with God because you might be the only glimpse of Jesus another will see. That’s what I love about you and your blog. Your authentic love for people shows forth. In the way you personally comment to us and the way you go out of your way to put on posts that help us feel better in the clothes we wear, your blog is personal. Not just a showcase to show clothes and get a click as so many are. Mery Christian Dear Heart. ????????????

  21. Merry Christmas to you and James, fellow Home Aloners! Our family is in Texas and Kansas and we almost made the trip, but it became clear that they were as iffy about us coming as we were about going. So it will be not a blue, blue Christmas, but a Zoom, phone Christmas. I join the others in thanking you, Kay, for the amazing and remarkable job you have done this year. I follow one other fashion/lifestyle blog and check in on others, but your combination of well-researched content and keeping your (and our) eyes on Jesus makes yours my favorite. Thank you for the creativity and the hours and hours you spend chained to the keyboard. 🙂 You’ve written so many devos for us, you might enjoy the one I posted yesterday at my blog, written for kindred spirits fighting for joy this Covid Christmas. Take comfort and joy in knowing how much we appreciate the content, but even more, the community you have created. Wishing you an overflow of Christmas beauty in the lights, music, Scripture, and joy with Immanuel this season. ♥ Lael
