JESUS Is The Light Of The World
When we started decorating and preparing for Christmas, we had no idea that God would have something different in mind. Three days before Christmas we were called out of town for a family emergency that landed a family member in the ICU.
Over the course of the next six days, it felt as though we'd been to war! I guess in sense, we had. Everyone that we asked stepped in and helped, beyond measure, to create a normal holiday experience for the boys while I tried to maintain some type of order and be supportive.
While things have improved greatly, we still have a long road ahead. The whole experience served as a reminder that JESUS is the reason for the season!
2011 has been a year of extremes: extreme highs and extreme lows! As the saying goes, "All that doesn't kill you, makes you stronger"! We're STRONG and looking forward to 2012!
