Tis the season, to settle back and take joy in the things that matter. We have simplified our gift giving considerably this year. I am glad. I am not the least bit stressed out, and I am enjoying my family, rejoicing in the miracle of Christ dwelling in me, abiding in our home, and making Himself known deep in our hearts.
Between the lines, there are temper tantrums, moments of chaos, frustration with my inability to be a perfect parent, and exhaustion from the rigors of life with 7 children; but the theme of this story will always be “Jesus the Redeemer,” the one who came to seek and save the lost, and create in each of us something beautiful, reflecting His goodness.
Praying that each of you will lean into His strong, everlasting arm, and find peace and hope and joy this season.
