We have caroled, spent time with friends, were late to candlelight service, and are having a peaceful day. Here are some thoughts for today.
I Have No Gift To Bring BaRumPumPumPum
Dale’s sister gave him the ultimate gift
Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room
The support and love we have gotten from friends and family has been overwhelming. The love of Jesus has shone through all these precious people who definitely have made room in their hearts for Him and us!
I’ll Be Home For Christmas
And we ARE!
The First Noel
People have many firsts in their lives but not everyone has a first Christmas with a new kidney!
Silent Night, Holy Night
Our Christmas Eve was calm and bright. Both of our children were here and all of us under one roof – safe, dry, and warm. The Christmas tree lit and the fireplace glowing, food to eat – no huge excitement or loud parties. Just all of us here – at home.
O Come All Ye Faithful, Joyful and Triumphant!
We have been faithful and we have come so far from Thanksgiving to Christmas. This one could have also been Over The river and Through The Woods LOL
Fall On Your Knees, O Hear The Angel Voices!
So many prayers have been answered. We have not done it perfectly (whatever that means) and it has been harder than Dale ever thought. It has been humbling and maybe that was part of the message. We have survived and have a period of healing to go through and adjustments to make but we are so grateful to be here.
The World In Solemn Stillness Lay To Hear The Angels Sing
What a gift a night of sleep in your own home can be…
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
The kids are playing Guitar Hero in the other room and we are here with them – that is our Christmas present (that and trying to see how many songs I know from the video game). It’s funny sitting here and listening to ZZ Tops’ “La Grange” and FogHats’ “Slowride” in the other room.
Silver Bells, Silver Bells, It’s Christmas Time In The City
And we are NOT there – nuff said.
thanks BJ for the ornament 🙂
