Blue Christmas on the Longest Night of the Year

For many people, the holidays are other than eagerly awaited.  For people without family and/or friends, those who have suffered the loss of income, a job, a loved one, physical or mental abilities, "The MOST WONDERFUL Time of the Year" is quite the opposite.

This time of year has a devastating effect on those with chronic or clinical depression; it presents a particular challenge for those who suffer from substance abuse -- the profound pit all of these hearts occupy is in radical contrast to the pictures of Norman Rockwell or the engravings of Currier and Ives, for that matter. 

So, I ask those of us whose hearts are full to share some love, some time, some friendship, some warmth, some compassion with those whose hearts are sorely empty.;

A service for Blue Christmas is provided Rev. Elizabeth Kaeton at this entry in her blog:
