Another christmas has past ya'll! This one was especially special because the whole family was under the same roof this season and because we saw les miserables christmas day. Shoot. What an emotion roller coaster that was. Did anyone feel totally drained they didn't even want to eat popcorn by the end of the movie? Well, my hand is raised! I'm so thankful to have been born into a family of faithful followers. You can always hear some posture of les miserables music in our house. (dad is currently whistling it in his room)
But on a lighter note than the finale scene of les miserables, (wait, there goes tim singing the " I dreamed a dream" upstairs) our days have been filled with laughs and joy and music and food and lots of settlers of catan and baby watching... mostly baby watching. I have loved being able to escape from the hustle and bustle of things and not have any agenda but to read and rest as much as I can. (there goes phillip singing "can you hear the people sing?")
I hope you all have gotten a chance to find rest and peace in this christmas season. Despite the presents and food and family, every year i'm humbled by the ancient tale that brings those things together in the first place. So as we rejoice in tangible gifts this season, we cannot forget to be glad in the ultimate gift of the birth of our savior. I think that's such a stinkin awesome gift if you ask me.
So once again...merry christmas! May it be very merry and bright and full of rejoicing.
