As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. -- Isaiah 55:10-11

The Christmas Story: Still Being Written
I love that girl.
So, we took our pictures, fixed our ornaments, and were ready to do the tree.
So, I texted Rob and told him the story is still solid, the lives are still amazing, and he needed an ornament.
The first job is to actually put up the tree. That is Rob’s job.
Looking sort of ugly right now, but with some help….
That blue spot by Rob’s elbow is Anna, and the blur on the left is Robert.
My job is to sit in the recliner, be the cheerleader, and take pictures.
Told you it would look nice.
The first ornament on the tree is usually the one Rob and I picked out from our first Christmas together. This year, though, Anna had a special ornament. She picked up this lovely cardinal in honor of Mom, and she put it on the tree first.
By the time Jerri got around to putting up hers, the tree was nearly full.
Then we do a light check….and find out they don’t all work because the Enterprise isn’t plugged in correctly.
But once it is fixed….
And the story…with all the light and shadows, laughter and pain…is too…
