This verse is very appropriate for this past week. Our family was supposed to take part in our Christmas skit at our church. Initially, the four children were supposed to participate. Then, my husband and I were asked to portray Mary and Joseph. But then, every single member of our household – from my daughter, our three sons, myself, my mother (who lives with us) and my husband became sick. Our oldest wound up not participating in the skit. So my husband took his role. Our director found new people to play Mary and Joseph and I became an observer. Then to top it all off, we had adventures with our plumbing. It was not the way I thought our Christmas weekend would go. Here is a picture of my husband and two of our children playing Carolers, while our youngest son played a cookie. All in all the skit went amazing.
With everyone sick, we decided to have a quiet day at home for Christmas. We had a good dinner. And then spent the rest of the day relaxing.
Today, I am glad to say the plumbing is fixed. Some members of the family are on the mend. So we will pray the new year begins better than the way 2017 is going out.
So how was your Christmas? I would love to hear from you.
