It came upon the midnight clear, glorious song of old

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????It is calming to know that God and his angels are watching over us.

                     “Peace on the earth,
                                 Good will to all.”

However, there are many challenges in life that can seem overwhelming, and some individuals and families are not equipped to handle the load. Their steps are slow and painful. LSS is here to guide them on this weary road and help lighten their heavy load.

At LSS, we’ve seen smiles emerge on the faces of those battling depression. We’ve seen hope surface for those bearing the weight of what seems like a mountain of debt. We’ve seen comfort and peace warm the hearts of those who have lost loved ones.

In women who have been abused physically and emotionally, LSS has seen inner pride and strength grow when they accomplish something new on their own. We’ve seen children transform when they learn to overcome fear after suffering from years of abuse and neglect.

In the last year, we’ve seen pain and worry subside on the faces of ranchers when they learn volunteers are on their way to help after disaster devastated their way of life. And, we’ve seen couples waiting for a child to call their own embrace and celebrate many Christmas mornings with precious little ones.

2nd verse blackAs we reflect on our blessings, I invite you to join LSS in serving others. For those who travel weary roads, God is present, angels sing joyous praises of hope, and LSS is nearby.

Please help bring guidance and hope to those taking slow and painful steps by sending a gift to LSS this Christmas season. Your gift will help strengthen those who are weary and reassure them of God’s presence in their lives.

May this Christmas season allow you to hear the angels sing and feel God’s presence in your life.
