The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger;
In all our trials born to be our friend.
He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger,
Behold your King! Before Him lowly bend!

Isaiah arrived from Seattle at 8:00 on Christmas Eve and we immediately sat down to dinner.  The table was set with goblets,cloth napkins, and Advent candles.  As we gathered, we realized there was an empty seat – we paused, then somebody said, “Oh, we set a place for Dimples.”  It was a sad moment for all of us.

Russ and I are on our way to see Dimples today.  Please pray for her, for us, and for the team of people involved.  Having a crisis over a holiday adds an additional layer of complication since we are unable to reach some key people.

I hope your Christmas was wonderful.

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!

    We put this on our card last year. The words meant more than I had ever processed before. You all have been so heavy on my heart. I am praying. Wish with all my heart I could offer something but in many ways, I know prayer is the most coveted gift. There is hope for the weary! Praying!

    Ever since I saw your other post, you and your family have been on my mind and in my prayers. I don't even know how to relate to all that you are processing at the moment. I am thankful that our loving heavenly Father and Jesus, our Great High Priest, know exactly what you need.
