i don’t know that i’ve ever experienced a more magical christmas than this year. having the family down here in hope town was such a treat– it’s so fun to see this place through the eyes of two children– plus, we got to have lots of fun! my favorite saying of the week:
“brandon, you’re a baboon.”
“no i’m not. i’m a good boon. you’re a bad boon, uncle mike!”
watching everyone open their presents last night, i felt like a child myself. everyone was so happy– at the thought put into their gifts, at the chance of being together.
before going to sleep last night, all i could think about was how incredibly blessed i am. no matter what, we will always have this beautiful christmas memory and remember what this time is about: christ coming to earth and loving us all so selflessly.
merry christmas, everyone! i hope you are able to share the love and joy of christ with everyone you see today, and every day!
