Merry Christmas . Selamat Natal . Feliz Navidad
Hello and Merry Christmas! I just wanted to say a little season’s greetings to those of you who keep up with my blog, I hope you are well wherever you are! Sometimes I feel a little sorry for myself being far from home and my family and friends…in tropical weather at christmas time. But then I remember why we have Christmas, to honor Christ’s life and death – it was so long ago and feels far removed sometimes, and maybe a little unreal? So nothing like being away from home around Christmas to remember why Christmas is so important, reasons I can easily forget in the midst of everyday life.
And there are so many ways God is visible in my life – bringing me here to Indonesia, giving me such a great, supportive family, friends here and at home, and so many beautiful places to explore! When I look ahead to the future, I’m not sure where I’ll be or what I’ll be doing, but I am excited for endless possibilities and finding joy in each day, because even if I sometimes have to look for the good, it’s definitely there.
Blessings to you this Christmas and in the New Year!
