One thousand gifts

family 2016

This Christmas season, this season of lists, I am starting a new one – a list of one thousand things I love, one thousand gifts I already have.  I want you to know that you are one of those gifts – to me, to our family, to the work we get to do, also a gift I never take for granted.

Because of you, the N team in Nigeria has two new gifts.  They not only completed the book of Acts this summer while John was there, but the gospel of John as well.  Because of you, every member of my family is growing, changing, and maturing.  Because of you, we will be enjoying Christmas gifts around the tree.

May the Lord give you eyes to see the beauty that you might otherwise miss in this busy, holy time of year, and new hope for a fresh start in 2017.
