Tis the Season...

Miss Meagan is on her way back to Seattle. Our son, Josh, and the rest of our company have all returned to their home bases. Except for the Patriots/Texans game, that is serving as white noise, the house is quiet. The Pats have come out firing in the second half, but neither Sandy or I are all caught up in it. Tomorrow, Sandy returns to teaching, and I will be at my first business by seven a.m.

It doesn't seem possible that Christmas is less than a month away. As a family we decided that we would forego all traditional gift giving and combine those resources, so that all of us can gather with Justin, Erika, the Amazing Wyatt, in Boston, on the day we celebrate Christ's birth. As the years fly by, family becomes more and more important. Ours is spread out from the east coast to the west coast, but at least Sandy and I are no longer on the other side of the world. We are travel poor from the comings and goings of the last four years!

I will be speaking twice in December: once at a company Christmas party that I serve, and another time at Hunter Road Baptist Church on December 8th. I have been trying to give a lot of thought and prayer about how to best speak into the lives of those who will hear. "Tis the Season to be jolly!" But beneath the thin layer of widespread merriment many have a deep, unspoken awareness that there has got to be more...
