Who knew it would be such a challenge to get in a dinner together over the holidays?
We had Thanksgiving at our annual conference, but I had a coordinating team meeting that ran late and the family had already eaten by the time I arrived. Even so, a Mexican restaurant meal just isn’t quite the same as a home-cooked one.
Having arrived home from Florida after midnight on Christmas morning and having a birthday party we needed to attend that afternoon, we were thwarted from keeping our family tradition once again! So, with our house church meeting cancelled for this Sunday to give everyone time to enjoy being with their families during these days of family visits, we planned on having a feast today. And feast we did.
Thanks to our great God who provides abundantly for His children. We’re truly blessed!
We hope you’ve had a blessed Christmas season and have been able to join us in praising God for the eternal gift of His Son who gives us the only reason to celebrate at this and every time of year.
(It takes a special request to get two teenaged boys to actually look up at the camera, especially during a meal, and extra effort to get one particular boy to not wear a hoodie over his face! That one had to go in yesterday morning to the orthodontist for a tightening of his braces so he ended up eating “raw men” as he called it. He doesn’t like mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes either which were his only two potential options. I guess he didn’t miss much from his normal “selective” tastes.)
