VERY QUICK UPDATE!
I gotta keep this snappy as we're having bad thunderstorms come thru. The tv station never called back for whatever reason. Who knows why. I know we had a breaking local news story that was taking up a lot of media energy so that might have been it. Thanks anyway to all of you who prayed and sent sweet emails or left comments.
I won't be much online today due to the weather but hope y'all have a wonderful Thursday and truly enjoy your last few days of the Christmas season.
Before I get offline, let me leave you a nugget of grace:
"How are we to think of the incarnation? The New Testament does not encourage us to puzzle our heads over the physical and psychological problems that it raises, but to worship God for the love that was shown in it. For it was a great act of condescension and self humbling. 'He, Who had always been God by nature' writes Paul, 'did not cling to His prerogatives as God's equal, but stripped Himself of all privilege by consenting to be a slave to nature and being born as mortal man. And having become man, He humbled Himself by living a life of utter obedience, even to the extent of dying, and the death He died was the death of a common criminal. And all this was for our salvation."
J I Packer, Knowing God
I need to keep that in mind right now. THAT is something worth celebrating.
