I hope you all had a wonder~full Christmas! I've been enjoying having my daughter home from college for a few weeks, fully aware that when she graduates next Spring and becomes a full time church worker, her Christmas's at home may not be possible. After all, it IS the busy season for church staff :) I'm also grateful for a new year. Even though 2013 had some unexpected heartaches for our family, it also held tremendous joys. And through it all, the Hand of God was wrapped around us. For that, I am forever grateful. Happy New Year!
