In spite of the weather, Christmas was beautiful. Church was cancelled due to icy roads and the entire day was one where no one felt safe being out on the roads. In spite of that, the day was wonderful. Christ was honored and our family was all together with the exception of one who was out of state. It was a joy.
There are times when it seems I’m doing so little for God and then I get the reminder that family comes right after my relationship with God. Taking a week to honor family and its importance is a right thing to do. Growing up, I use to live for the day to be away from my family, today I look forward to every minute we can be together. Then to realize our family of God is even bigger and better. It is amazing how God transforms us and turns the ugliness of past into a beautiful life where we can live for Him!
