I hope that this post find you loved and warmly embraced by your love-ones this Christmas morning. May your day be filled with moments filled with grace and mercy.
As I sit here writing, it’s been a couple of hours since my children have been awake. They are off to their corners of our home exploring with their new toys. My wife lays in bed after a long labor of preparing for today. I’m pretty mellow, thankful for another Christmas to be alive. I just finished sitting with my son, helping him put a toy together. I’m listening to to Bethel Music, praying, and thinking.
This year has been hard on our family. My schedule with work, challenges with growing kids, the strains of marriage as we change too as we get older. Life has just been difficult. And, I couldn’t be more happier. Thankful for four kids that are growing. I’m so thankful that my wife and kids are all healthy and happy.
I’m not sure what 2018 will be for us. I’ve decided to make it a growth year. I have a list of things that I would like to grow in. I have some goals to get some aws certifications. Maybe I will explore some front-end frameworks. I want to really grow in my relationship with the Lord and become more kind and gentle. I want to spend more time with my kids and wife.
