Last night was our church's annual Room for a Baby concert. It's a hometown concert that our community puts on as a fundraiser for the local pregnancy center. While we are missing our Mbale community and the annual Christmas concert at the Reformation Book Room, we are working to establish and enjoy new traditions here. We're working to make it home.

Today was the annual Christmas parade for Milledgeville. It was a slightly nostalgic time for me that was fun to share with my kids. Rebecca was on the Nutcracker float with her ballet class. They are looking forward to this weekend's performances.

"For he gives to his beloved sleep." Psalm 127:2
What? It's the end of the day and I haven't taken a picture yet? Good thing there is a sweet little spirit so preciously tucked under her covers. When I see her soft slumber, I see the last remnants of childhood wrapped up behind her cute little nose and precious dreaming mind still so filled with wonder. One can't help but praise the Lord and thank him over and over again for his good gift.

"And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers...And day by day attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved." Acts 2
Tonight we met with the elders in order to become members at our church here in Georgia. This is partly done with a heavy heart as our welcome here is also a reminder of our loss in Uganda. We miss our dear brothers and sisters at New Life Presbyterian Church in Mbale so so much. But we are so thankful for the believers here who have welcomed us with open arms, encouraged us and supported us. So we continue to march on living in paradox... the highs and the lows blended together, being crafted into a beautiful picture that as of yet, only God can see. We put one foot in front of the other and embrace our new life and our new home and we are thankful for those who are reaching out to embrace us.
