Holiday Refreshment for Hurting Parents

Today’s blog is a visual one. I did another one like this back in July. I am moved by the beauty captured by photography.It soothes my soul. During this holiday season when brokenhearted parent’s emotions may be raw I hope you will find solace here. Soak in the beauty and peacefulness of each photo. Let these pictures draw you to a place of calmness and hope. Let them renew and refresh. Be blessed with a few moments of serenity.

  1. Estranged from my one and only son for 5 years. Holidays are the hardest and the enemy keeps battling for my mind. Confusion, depression, frustration, anger, sadness, and any other negative emotion has been part of the past five years. Three grandkids are also part of the picture. They don’t know me or my love. Prayers for reconciliation and peace!!

    • I am so sorry, Pam. I am praying for you now as I read over your comment. May your heart be comforted as you trust your Savior with all the hurt and pain. May you know His peace as you journey through one more difficult holiday season.
