A blessed Christmas time to you! Just as the townspeople of Bethlehem…

Sheep ... seriously?

Sheep ... seriously?   At Christmas?

Filled with anticipation ...

Filled with Anticipation ...to Feel God. Christmas, 2017.

There is nothing quite like being 'great with child' close to Christmas Day.  My firstborn son was born on my birthday three days after Christmas.  And my second-born, Amy, is to deliver identical twin boys this Thursday morning.  Not only is she very great with child, we are filled with anticipation, preparing for their arrival…

Mind the Gap!

Mind the Gap. [between Thanksgiving and Christmas]
