Mark and I had a great Christmas! It was nice not to be sick this week and to be able to enjoy time with family, friends, and with our church. The only thing missing was David and Sydneyann! They enjoyed Christmas with family and friends at home in Los Angeles.
But somehow all the recent "big events" - Thanksgiving, Graduation, Christmas - bring with them thoughts of wonder. Not the "wonder" of Christmas, but the "wonder" of cancer...
I wonder how many more Thanksgivings I will share with my family?
I wonder if I will see Ashley's graduation?
I wonder if this will be my last Christmas?
As I lay in bed on Christmas Eve, trying to fall asleep following five great services at Community of Faith, I was "wondering". And then music started playing in my head. An old hymn that I learned growing up. God's peace washed over me again as He reminded me that all is well. I can trust Him. No need to wonder anymore.
