All is quiet on New Years Day

This post will not be fraught with the lyrical references of my last post. It has been one of the best holiday seasons I have had in a long time. The season started with a brief visit from our friends the McMullins. They were on their way to rendezvous with their family. It was a great time for talking and hanging out.Our church party went well and was a lot of fun. We had a good attendance. The next evening we held a candlelight service at the church. For many of us it was a first and was a great success. It was a good time of prayer and reflection. I am hoping the success of this service will lead to more opportunities for creative times together for my church. That night my mother and sister arrived from Cleveland TN and the next day my brothers came up. It was the first time we had all been together for a few years it and our time together was wonderful. Everyone had a good time and we got to enjoy one another's company. I received some great gifts but the fact that my whole family came up to be with us at this time when Kim is so close to giving birth to our daughter was so special.
