It's here!

Wow, what a great evening with family, presents, and tons of food! We had a wonderful time at my parent's house eating chili and lots of other goodies! Then the chaos begins - opening presents! Four of our children were there, our oldest, Andrea and her husband and their son, Gavin; our oldest son, Lee and his girlfriend; our daughter, Brittney and her husband and their daughter, Jolie; and our youngest, Crystal. And that's just our kids! Then there was my brother and his wife and five kids. And my sister and her husband were there, also. PLUS Mom and Dad. That's LOTS of people in one room opening presents at one time! What fun! It was awesome. There is nothing sweeter in the world than having a sweet little grandson and granddaughter give you hugs and kisses and say, "Meh Ki-mah!" (That's Jolie's translation for "merry Christmas". Gavin's is definitely more clear, but just as sweet!)

So, hope you all have a blessed holiday. I know many of us are struggling with economic difficulty. But I know that no matter what happens, my Lord is still on His throne and still interceding for me with the Father. I can come boldly before Him and make my petitions, my difficulties, my challenges, my sorrows, my needs known. And He listens. And He loves. And He answers! God bless and Merry Christmas!
