WOW, CHRISTMAS EVE IS HERE.
Tom made it through the pass and is here with us now. We went out and got a webcam for our computer and we hope that it will get us hooked up with our family(Angel and Aaron and Will's cousins) so we will be together through the power of technology. We just got it so I think I have it installed right. Will went down to the physical therapy room downstairs and did some exercises and he will do more tomorrow. He has dialysis tomorrow and he will be feeling good on Christmas Day. Maybe if you all have time, you could wish Will a Merry Christmas on the comment page (you don't have to write a lot). I will read them all to him on Christmas morning. I would mean a lot to him.
We look forward to Christmas because of all the blessings God has given us throughout this last ten months. But it all started with the miracle in a manger, what a great gift for all of us who believe in Him, Jesus Christ, and what it means to all of us-eternal life.
I can't help but remember that there is a family going through their "first" Christmas without their loved one. Without his or her special gift of lungs given to Will, he wouldn't be here now. I pray with all my might that they might find peace through this season. Please help me pray for them.
"more blessed to give than to receive."Acts 20:35 (NIV) I know most kids out there don't believe that, but if you haven't bought your gifts for your family, maybe you can give a service gift of yourself. Think about a foot rub, or doing dishes without being asked, or anything like that.
God bless everyone and have a great Christmas Eve. We sing carols and laugh a lot (usually it's because of our singing that we laugh).
