“Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.” - Psalm 62:8
The holidays are supposed to be joyful so people who experience great sadness and depression often will not share their true feelings with others. Those who might have the holiday blues include parents whose children no longer live at home, seniors who are widowed or have lost many of their friends, and any person who is separated from family and friends. These losses and separations take the joy out of their holidays. To give them back some enjoyment, include them in your activities, encourage them to get involved in church and acknowledge their feelings and losses. Support them when they are blue.
