How an enlarged sense of love for others overcame stress & self-pity at Christmas

Christmas can be a challenging time. But when this young woman found out she had to work all night on Christmas Eve she felt as though she was being robbed of all the goodness she associated with Christmas. Read how, as she prayed to understand more about the true sense of Christmas, she realised she could express the selfless love of Christ wherever she was.
