Christmas, New Year's and Leaving

This Christmas was probably one of my favorites.  I was ready for the season to arrive.  I really leaned into what the Holidays would bring.  There are countless stories, too numerous to type here.  I am so thankful.  

I will admit that this New Year’s kind of felt like a hiccup or something.  I really missed Times Square and I don’t know if that was it.  I am definitely hopeful of what the new year will bring.  I feel change coming.  

I am not ready for tomorrow to arrive.  

You see, my bride is leaving the country and following her heart to Guatemala.  She will be gone for about 12 days or so.  It will be me and the kids fending for ourselves at home.  Emma, Mac, and I have never been without our precious Kristin before.  We already miss her and have been doing so for the last couple of days, intensely.  Our hope for her is that God would reveal himself in Guatemala in grand ways and that Kristin will find more of her heart leading to more of God’s.  I am sad, lonely, afraid, and glad.  It is bittersweet.  

If there is one thing I can ask of you, it is this:


I trust your heart will know what words to speak.
