"Go through, go through the gates, prepare the way for the people; build up, build up the highway, clear it of stones, lift up an ensign over the peoples. The LORD has proclaimed to the end of the earth: Say to daughter Zion, "See, your salvation comes; his reward is with him, and his recompense before him." They shall be called, "The Holy People, The Redeemed of the LORD"; and you shall be called, "Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken." Isaiah 62:10-12
Blessings to all on this Christmas Morn. May your day be as blessed as ours. We are surrounded by children and grandchildren" Josh, Karri, Amanda, Chris, Matt, Tucker, Kyleigh, Caleb, Kason, and Abby. Beauty, wonder and love. Thanks be to God for our health, for the wealth of love. Our cup runs over...and it isn't over. We are soon to be on the road for a little venture to my mom and dad's where we will be further blessed with a noisy, loving family.
May this new year in our church be clear of "stones"; may we realize that we are indeed "Sought Out," a diocese "Not Forsaken".
Barbi, Debbie and Tucker.
