We hope you had a nice Christmas, and that you are continuing to celebrate the birth of Christ. Christmas isn’t just a day, it’s a season. And, the reality of Christ’s birth is relevant every day!
We have enjoyed celebrating Christmas this week. Both of our churches celebrated Christmas Eve candlelight services. The kids, who usually attend Mommy’s church, came to Centre Grove, thanks to Grammy & Pappy. It was fun having them there.
In my prayer after the sermon, I intentionally prayed Psalm 86.11, which has been our family’s memory verse in recent months. On Christmas morning, after opening presents and eating breakfast, I asked the kids if anything sounded familiar in my prayer after the sermon. Ethan immediately said, “Teach me your way, Lord,” which is the opening phrase of the verse (“Teach me your way, Lord, so that I can walk in your truth. Make my heart focused only on honoring your name”).
Christmas Day was certainly exciting as the kids opened gifts and played with new toys. Of course, that means we got to play, too!
