Keep the focus on Jesus

A few weeks ago we started to decorate the church for Christmas. The tree was taken out of the box. All of the wreaths and bows were fluffed. The garland was hung out on the porch columns and railings. Everyone there made sure all of the ornaments were in good shape and hung them all in just the right places. We only encountered a couple of problems with the lights before they all started to work.

Living in between

This entire year has been one of transitions for me. On New Year’s Day I visited, prayed with and said goodbye to my grandmother, knowing I would not see her again in this life. She went home to be with the Lord one week later.
