Jesus, am really lonely. Somebody who was really important to me, a big part of my life, is longer in my life.

All around me, people are happy, celebrating, and I am hurting, aching! I really do not want to celebrate your birthday Jesus. I hope you are not offended, if I do not come to Your party. I know you've done a lot for me, but I just don't feel up to a party right now.

Please comfort me. Help me feel less alone. Give me the strength to get through the season.
