I’m spending some time today wrapping up some commitments before we head to our Christmas Eve service tonight. Then I’m mostly off work for the next couple of weeks. Beginning late this week I’ll have some reflections on the past year, which has been a whole lot better than last year was. I’ll also have a preview of what I’m working on for the coming year.
I don’t know everyone who reads this blog personally, but I’m getting to know more of you. Some of you have been around a long time and have not only commented and emailed, but have also met with me. The best thing that’s come out of this blog are some friendships I wouldn’t otherwise have.
Whoever you are, I wish you a blessed Christmas.
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and of peace
there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it
with justice and with righteousness
from this time forth and forevermore.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.
