This Christmas our boxes with presents did not make it in time for Christmas day. I was a little sad that my kids presents did not make it here but it turned out to be a HUGE blessing. We had to step back from what we have made Christmas and step in to what Christmas really is. A time of celebrating the birth of our Savior, the one who brought me to La Moskitia, the one who formed our family, the one who places orphans in homes, the one who feeds the hungry, and the one who deserves all the glory!
"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men
on whom his favor rests"
