Death and Christmas

In 2009, my aunt was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer.  After more than 2 years of treatment, she died last December 11, 2011.  Six days after, my lola died in her sleep.

We are a close-knit family that’s why the sadness and pain that we feel is beyond measure.  There are times that I wonder what Christmas will be like for us after this.  

By listening to Pastor Jun Aguilar’s preaching last Sunday at Victory Fort Podcast, I was reminded that the celebration of Christmas is beyond the family gatherings, the Noche Buena or the gifts we give and receive.  It is also beyond our current situation or emotional state.  Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus, God’s son, whom He sent for our salvation.

Whatever our situation is this Christmas, let us rejoice because Jesus is with us!
