I Will Sing

This is going to be a tough Christmas for some....

struggling to celebrate like others do.

Widows and their first Christmas alone.

Others facing a military deployment through the year.

I pray the Lord holds them and encourages them.

I know He gives JOY in the most unlikely circumstances.

Be Inspired by a WORD or the ENTIRE PHRASE "You're a grand old flag, you're a high flying flag."
