While we are all busy saying "Happy New Year!" to one another, it seems strange that I'm actually looking forward to Christmas! We are just a bit abnormal around here this year. Between mom Stager having her medical emergency on Christmas Eve, and our SC branch of the family driving up to Ohio TODAY, things just got a bit out of order!
So we are planning to celebrate Christmas again this Sunday when all of us can be together. Our plan is to attend church together where our older son, Andy, will be preaching, and then come back to our house for a turkey dinner and gift opening.
My mother-in-law is back home to her condo now. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. I think my life-between-the-buns is taking on yet another twist...My comfort is in taking one day at a time, just like Jesus said we should do. (Matthew 6:34: "...do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Today has enough trouble of its own.")
I've been thinking of all my blogging friends and hate being so out of touch, but I'll make up for it as soon as things settle down around here. I'm very much looking forward to the New Year and fully living in each and every moment. God bless you all...may He prosper you and defend you as you lean on Him to guide you into another year!
