You can have your parties with fancy champagne flutes and cocktail dresses. . You can have your subzero block parties and late night fireworks. . I’ll be right here, ringing in the new year with my people, pajama pants, and board games. . If this is where 2018 is headed, bring it. . Happy New Year, friends. It’ll be a great one.

I don’t have perfectly coordinated smiley pictures from Christmas Eve because it wasn’t perfect or coordinated or - frankly - very smiley. . I don’t have any pictures like that, but I do have this: a picture of sunset tonight, reminding me that even in the cold starkness of winter, light shines and pierces the darkness. It may disappear for a little while, but it’s still shining. . The people who walk in [spiritual] darkness will see a great Light; those who live in the dark land, the Light will shine on them. (Isaiah 9:2)
Hustle and bustle and chaos and frenzy and overstimulation, oh my! That pretty much sums up today (and really a great portion of the holidays) for me. Probably most people - but for whatever reason (and I suspect there are many) I have an unusually low threshold for that kind of thing. .

Oops. . I was kind of beating myself up for it when I saw this among the other cookies cooling on the table. As it turns out, God doesn’t have too much on His mind to remind me that I’m loved. He never does. I just miss it because...well...I’m distracted. . May NONE of us get distracted from the overarching message of this entire season. We’re loved. You’re loved, totally and undistractedly.
