It's Christmas Eve...

...and I feel as though I've run out of things to say about this Christmas season. So I think I'll post some random thoughts I've got running around in my head.

I am struggling greatly with not being home this year.

I know that this is only temporary, but while you're in the middle of it, it sure does suck.

There is no other way around it. It really bothers me when people complain about how time consuming/exhausting it is to be with their families in general, but it especially bothers me now.

I miss my family a great deal and would love nothing more than being with all of them in Oklahoma "dealing" with the holidays.

That being said, I am also equally heartbroken for the families that do not get to spend the holidays together because they have family serving for us every day overseas in the armed forces. 

It also makes me think about Mary and Joseph. At this point in the story, they were still just Mary and Joseph. They too were away from family and they were about the have the Savior of the world.

Can you imagine? I know you can't, but isn't it wonderful to think about what tomorrow means for all of us as believers?

Luke 2:1-7: In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while[a] Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register.


So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them. 

Hope this finds you well and happy and with your family!

Merry Christmas Eve!
