I'm taking a little blogging break to celebrate Christmas with my sweet family. I expect that I will have plenty of photos to share when I return sometime next week or the first week in January. Until then, I will share with you "my" verse for this season. It is the passage in Luke's gospel when Simeon saw the newborn Jesus at the temple with his parents. It is a tremendous statement of faith and I have been meditating on it all month.
My eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples. A light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel.
