Well the house is ready. The food is organised. The presents are wrapped (or they will be by tomorrow). It is time to sit back and enjoy time with the family.
It hardly seems possible that we have been here a whole year. What a year! So busy and full of new experiences. 2013 is already shaping up to be full of new things too. Last Friday I also got some exciting news – I have been offered permanent employment at the town only 15 minutes away! I had my fingers crossed that it would come through.
Reflecting on our year, I have seen how God has looked after us. He has provided us with everything we need and a lot more beside. I have always believed that God would make it obvious to us what he wants us to do with our lives. After Friday’s news it seems obvious that we are meant to live in the country. Hopefully the reasons will be come apparent!
So my Christmas wish this year is that you will enjoy spending time together with family and friends as we celebrate the birth of our Saviour. Thank you for all your support throughout the year. I will be back sometime in January.
A Happy and Holy Christmas to you all!
