Merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas y'all!

(Originally posted Dec. 17)
In light of our recent ice storm, the extended power outage, and the massive clean-up that is underway, I wanted to go ahead and post this since I doubt I'll be doing much blogging in the next few weeks.

Yesterday was a special joy and blessing as our church family gathered for worship even though there was no heat or lights--power had not yet been restored to that part of town. We all bundled up, brought flashlights and worshipped our wonderful God who is in control of everything--including ice storms.

Later in the afternoon three men from church came over--chainsaws in hand--and transformed our yard from a 'war zone' back into a safe place to walk and play. What an amazing and humbling thing that brothers-in-Christ would give up their Sunday afternoon to do this--we have been greatly blessed!

Hi Connie...what a lovely family you have! Also, your report of worshipping without utilities really struck me. We modern Christians are spoiled. But I do hope you get your power back soon!

Thank you so much for reading and commenting on my blog...I really appreciate it!

I came across your blog and see that you have an interest in adoption. Here is a video we made and hope it can be used in adoption awareness.
