Overall it was a great Christmas Day spent with the family. Good food all day long but most importantly good company. After a hectic couple weeks and with retreat starting tomorrow it was much needed for me personally to wind down and have some fun.
The thing that really made my day was something very simple. Being able sit with my family in the same pew during church this morning. This doesn’t seem like much but for me it’s an opportunity I only get a couple times a year. Today I didn’t have any responsibilities for the service so I was able to join my family and be with them the whole time.
While I was sitting there next to my mom celebrating Jesus with worship and hearing the message I was so thankful. Thankful to rejoice on this special day with the people who are most special to me.
I’m so thankful I have a family here with me and family that I can attend church with. A family that I can grow in faith with and a family that I can love in Christ.
I saw God today.
