Just a quick blog entry this morning before I head out. Like the blogs of old when it was more of an online diary! (Which I enjoy, and why a lot of my posts are random and cover a variety of topics.)
So what's in store for today?

Baby clothes, diapers, bottles, that kind of thing. We'll be handing out thank you gift bags / stocking stuffers as well.
The organization we support then distributes these resources to those in need throughout the year. It's a great ministry.
Pro-lifers, by the way, pretty much always care for moms, and dads, and babies for months - even years - after birth. Anyone who tells you different is schilling for the pro-death industry.
Big bucks in abortion, so corrupt politicians and their cronies have a vested interest in smearing those of us who believe in giving women and families a choice to give birth to and support their babies.
Loving God will result in loving our neighbors in need, which includes the unborn.
Plus, at Christmas time, when we celebrate the birth of our Savior, think about this. If Mary's friends all suggested she 'terminate the pregnancy', welp, there goes the promise of peace on earth.
(insert pregnant pause...get it?)
Anyway, after the event at church, we'll get ready for a birthday dinner. Heading to an adult child of ours for a meal and presents later this evening. Tough on those with birthdays so near Christmas. For many, the occasion is skipped altogether or simply melded into a holiday gathering.
Merry Christmas and, by the way, happy birthday.
So we try to separate them out and make the occasion special in and of itself.
Then tomorrow, of course, we'll celebrate the Fourth Sunday of Advent and light the final candle of the Advent wreath. Do you have any church, ministry, or holiday traditions that you are gearing up for this final sprint week before the main event?
