We had a great Christmas. Not at all what we had pictured a year ago, but our time with each other and with family was sweet. Now, if only I could sleep for about 3 days straight to catch up!
God continues to stretch my faith, all the while reminding me so evidently that He is faithful. He always has been, always will be. He is Emmanuel, God with us, even in our darkness.
For Christmas, my little sister gave me a wall hanging with Isaiah 42:16 on it:
“I will guide you.
I will turn darkness into light before you
and make the rough places smooth.”
I have been challenged over the past couple of days as that verse circulates my mind to believe that…really believe it. And to trust God for the seemingly impossible. He keeps reminding me that nothing is too big for Him. He continues to bring “darkness into light” and “make the rough places smooth.” Thank You, Lord!
I just ordered a glass basketball ornament with Zachary’s name written across the front…I’ll post a picture when it arrives.
We’re off to our final (Hallelujah!) Christmas celebration. :-)
