Yesterday we arrived safely in Orlando at our new rest stop, Orlando RV Resort. Once again, the Lord has blessed us with a good campsite, nice neighbors and fair weather in which to travel here and set up. Sunday we go to our daughter’s house to celebrate Christmas with them since they waited for their family to have a day when all could be together to celebrate.

Each family is unique. When two people unite in love and begin to create their place as a couple in the world, they decide which traditions they are going to keep from their respective families. They also will create their own new traditions to pass on to their children. And so, the values and traditions undergo a slow change and over the centuries, what is custom evolves from one set of values to another.

There is one set of values, one tradition, one thing that has remained steadfast. Our Lord has always been and always will be. He has always been ready to forgive, to save and share our burdens. With this truth on our hearts we can go forth and proclaim Him Lord of our lives.

Psalms 68:19-20 Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. Our God is a God who saves; from the Sovereign LORD comes escape from death.
