Wow…it is Christmas afternoon and it is still snowing. We did have Christmas Eve worship last night at Salem Lutheran Church. Attendance was down a bit (not surprising) but I was still pleasantly surprised with the turnout. Christmas Day worship at Belmont was postponed until Sunday. Hopefully they can dig out in time to have worship then.
So now my wife and I are enjoying the storm. This morning Connie was shoveling and I was going to go to the fitness center. I walked outside and looked into the church parking lot (also my driveway) and noticed that the plows have completely blocked the two entrances…we are going nowhere. Not even our Jeeps will make it through the snow. Our snow removal guy should be here tomorrow to clear the lot…so in the time being we are snowed in. Luckily we have plenty of goodies left over from our Christmas open house.
We did get to talk and see Connie’s family this morning via Skype (got to love technology). Our 4-year-old nephew was having a great time talking with us and seeing us on their computer. It was really cute. Hopefully we will get to Sioux Falls on Saturday or whenever South Dakota reopens.
In any case, I hope you all had and are having a very merry and blessed Christmas. Jesus was born to us and that is an awesome reason to celebrate. Take care and God bless.
