Sunday - Worshiped with our sister church in Mexico; Gary preached; we all distributed Christmas boxes to kids and adults; crossed the border back into the U.S.; found out my mother-in-law lost her husband of three years while we were gone; went to San Antonio for the night; saw the Alamo and beautiful Christmas lights on the Riverwalk.
Monday - Drove home; collapsed; enjoyed an authentic Chinese meal made by the family of my sister, who used to live in China.
Tuesday - Visitation at the funeral home.
Wednesday - Funeral; enjoyed the hospitality of my friend Linda, who cooked us great tortilla soup and took us caroling in her neighborhood.
Thursday - Up most of the night with my husband, who had a migraine that three shots wouldn't lick. Took my brother-in-law to the airport. Watched the weather that says we expect up to a foot of snow on Christmas. Plan for tonight: fifteen for dinner--make-your-own pizza night--before heading to the 11 PM service.
Christmas is not just about good times. It's that God came down to enter our world. Immanuel = God with us. We are not alone!
(P.S. It's now snowing!)
