I haven’t posted a blog in some time and I thought what better way is there to send a Christmas card from Kenya than on a blog. I’m also thinking about praying about committing to a New Years Resolution of blogging again… but we’ll see. : )
Christmas is a bit like a snowy version of Thanksgiving. It just seems like a time to be thankful. So the boys and I would like to share some of the things we are thankful for…
Martin: “I am thankful that I don’t get in trouble at school… a lot. And also for Christmas and being able to be with family.”
Joseph: “I am thankful for my bicycle and having fun.”
Ken: “I am thankful that I have a nice home and a new phone. I am glad I get to hang out with Mary and the other kids who come to play.”
Simon: “I am thankful that I am able to go to school, having a good family that takes care of me, my bike, and happy days everyday.”
Matt: “I can’t begin to explain everything that I am thankful for. From the tangible things like a new reliable vehicle or a new bike to ride with the boys to the people whom I get to do life with each and every day. The family that I’ve been given here in Kenya who push me each and every day to look more like Christ and the friends and family I have at home who keep me here in Kenya through so many prayers and a lot of support. I literally can’t thank you enough.”
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!
Seriously, it’s 1:00 AM and I need to go to sleep.
