Are you lonely this holiday season? Have you experienced a loss so devastating you wonder if your heart will ever heal? I don’t have an answer for your grief, but I can share this sweet Christmas song from the 1970s with you. It’s a poem of love which has brought me comfort for many years. With a haunting melody line and enchanting words, sung by the Carpenters, a popular duo of Richard and his sister Karen, “Merry Christmas Darling” reaches deep into the spirit.


Open your grief-stricken heart and hear the message of love that sweeps down from ancient times and echoes across the hills of Bethlehem. A supernatural voice at Christmas time sings out, “Hello, my darling child. I am called Jesus and I love you and came to die for you. I bring you healing in your time of grief. Let me touch your heart. I will wrap my arms of love around you.”


About Betty Mason Arthurs

I have been the CEO of my family for years...translation: I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, owned by two cats, and often drive my husband crazy. I have belonged to Tuesday's Children for over 20 years and without them my writing skill would have been left in rejection piles all across America. I am a non-fiction author who has leaped into novel writing and having fun in my memories of nursing school in the 1960s. We'll see if I can do an e-book with the adventures of my first novel. I am a Christian who isn't perfect but loves the Lord Jesus and I never take much that happens too seriously due to my weird sense of humor. And I'll talk about my seven grandchildren nonstop if you want me to. Blessings on all of you.
