We finally got a path out of the church parking lot and I got my car dug out. I was starting to get cabin fever being stuck at the house for a couple days. The only bummer part of this whole thing is that even though we are free they are still not advising travel to Sioux Falls. My wife and I were hoping to make it to Sioux Falls today to celebrate Christmas with her side of the family. Everyone is there except for Connie and I. We are holding out hope now that we will make it there tomorrow after worship.
So even though this snow storm (which I have named “Winter Storm Eric”…I have always wanted a storm named after me) has changed our plans significantly… I am looking at the bright side of things. Instead of celebrating Christmas over the course of a couple days, running around like a chicken with its head cut off, we get to have a few little celebrations over the course of a week…taking our time to savor the moments. And isn’t that what we are supposed to do anyway?
So I have one more day to be kind of stuck and then we are off…to celebrate some more…and remember again and again why we have a season such as this. God sent love to earth in Jesus Christ…the best Christmas gift of all.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
