It raining here today, but hopefully it is going to stop this afternoon. The kids are planning an airsoft battle amongst themselves!
We're excited that the forecast for Christmas Eve into Christmas Day is saying a light snow!
Isla has arrived in town, bring her parents along with her! She has been having fun playing with Uncle Kyle, hanging with Auntie Sarah, feeding the horses with Grandpa, and giving the chickens some oats.
Tomorrow, the whole family and some friends are going to lunch to celebrate Tim's birthday. We're very pleased that his brother Dan and family will be with us for that! Then we have an early Christmas Eve service at church, then home for birthday gifts and later, stockings.
I hope you are all enjoying the season. I know for some this year is challenging due to loss, or illness. I know that for some there is deep pain due to broken relationships with loved ones. I'm praying for comfort for you all, for Joy in the Lord which is not dependent on circumstances.
"If you’re hurting this Christmas, know you are beloved of a God whose special concern is the brokenhearted.
If you’re rejoicing, don’t let fear have your joy, even for a moment."
