I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! I hope you are enjoying special time with your family and friends.
The greatest gift I received this year was my son attending Christmas Eve Service with our family. He hasn’t attended church regularly for a few years now, and although he did attend the Christmas Eve Service last year, he was apprehensive about attending this year. He knows that a lot of people at our church now know that he is gay. I could tell by the way he chewed his fingernails incessantly during the service that he was nervous about being there. He went because he knew it meant a lot to us. He is one of the bravest people I know. I could barely contain my emotions as he sat in the row in front of me (we had a lot of people with us and the young adults all sat together). Thank you to the person who said hello, shook his hand, and asked how he was doing. You know who you are and it meant more than you can even imagine.
Today I share with you a video about grace written by Beth Moore. Visuals by Stephen Proctor, and music by Tony Anderson. May we all share God’s grace with each other this coming year:

This gave me goose bumps
ACK!!! Somehow, amidst corralling my 3 tiny people (and their lit candles), I did not even get to see you or hug you or meet your family!!! I at least would have liked to introduce my Kai to your Kai. *sigh* Next year… Or maybe some day sooner?? 🙂
May the God who dreamed you up and knitted you together fill you with ever-increasing courage and grace. Thank you for letting us all share your journey.
Lol…yes I’d say you had your hands full considering our service was complete with fire and all :-). I also was busy, but with people giving me their giving, Christmas cards, various items for service on Sunday… Hopefully it won’t take us a full year to connect.
I pray the coming new year is filled with blessings beyond measure for you and your family. I look forward to all your adventures on FB :-). Oh, and happy belated birthday!
