Lord, why is Jesus' birthday such a difficult time? I am welcome to go home for Christmas - sort of. Just as long as my partner and I do not share the same bedroom. Some acceptance.

Lord, am I asking for too much? Just to be accepted at Christmas. Is that too much?

Come to think of it Lord, Jesus and I have a lot in common. Nobody really wanted Jesus at the first Christmas. I guess You do understand how I feel. You understand the hurt of not being wanted during the family season. Please carry me through the holidays.

Amen
