This weekend is Christmas (as if you were not aware of that fact). Our house is going to be bustling with plenty of activity. We are blessed to have both my wife’s parents and my parents coming. My wife’s parents will be here Thursday and my parents will be here Friday. It has been years since my children have had both sets of grandparents with them to open presents on Christmas morning and I am positive that it will be great fun for all of us.
I have five days of vacation left to take before the New Year so I am taking next week off. I will be hunting with my dad, son, and father in law on Monday. My dad and I and possibly my son will hunt on Tuesday and a little on Wednesday and all that should be a lot of fun. My brother and his family is coming on Tuesday and so we will enjoy our time together – it is always fun getting together with them. I am blessed and thankful for how God has blessed me with a great family and a great church family.
Something else that I am looking forward to is the candlelight communion Christmas Eve service. We all be able to go together as a family and of course I will be leading it but it will be great to have family there. I am also looking forward to preaching on Sunday Morning with the family all being here. I have a lot to be looking forward to this Christmas season and praying that Christ is center of it all.
What are your Christmas plans?
Side note – I will not blog after Thursday until the new Year.
