With love & cheer

It’s been a huge year for us, friends. Thanks for sticking with me through sporadic posting, long bouts of silence, and blog identity crisis as I go through growing pains and continue to find my feet as a writer for this season.

I’m amazed by the friends I’ve made through this community and the gift that this little space has become. I so appreciate your contribution, your readership, and your insight as you share life with me.

Happy Christmas to you and yours, from me and mine:

And in case a last minute phone snap from the photo booth at our work Christmas party doesn’t say quite enough, here’s a short message we recorded on Christmas Day for friends, family, and our supporting churches back home.

I hope your Christmas was simply wonderful.

    I hope you guys had a fantastic Christmas celebration! I’m not gonna lie, I was half expecting there to be some news about a “growing family” now that you have that big new vehicle. 😉 I’m so happy for you guys and what an amazing testimony to how much more our Father in Heaven likes to give good gifts to his children.
