November and December, the months when we are busy with all of the hustle and bustle of the holidays end with Christmas and the beginning of a new year. I always have higher highs and lower lows at this time of year. I miss those who are gone more and remember the good times more. I am more thankful for God’s eternal grace and the blessings that He has given to me (not because I earned them or deserved them). I reflect on the past year with Linda and pray for guidance as we make our plans for the next year.

I pray more, seek to know Jesus more fully, take trips to see family and consequently write less. May this season of thanksgiving and worship be all that it needs to be to bring you closer to God, help you to love Jesus and give you peace and happiness.
