Savior, I am miles away from my family this year. I am celebrating alone. Because I cannot go home and I know very few people in the area, I just want to be alone. I really do not have a lot of people around me.

When I am in the home of people who do not know me on Christmas, I feel out of place, like a real stranger. I suspect You felt out of place, like a stranger here during a lot of your ministry.

Thank you for being "a stranger" in our world, so we can always be at home in the heavenly with You.

Amen
