thanksgiving in the days after

"But when the fullness of time had come,
God sent forth His Son,
born of woman,
born under the law,
to redeem those who were under the law,
so that we might receive adoption as sons."
Galatians 4:4–5
He came

And we, the grateful-redeemed adopted sons and daughters, respond with thanksgiving....#677 - 688

He took on flesh and the limitations of that body and earth for us
He came quiet like a winter snow
little ones singing "Happy birthday, Jesus"
littlest girl with hands raised towards heaven, "Jesus, are you 1, are you 2, are you 3....?"

simple celebration
easy to please, gleeful children
sticky, sweet pecan monkey bread hot from the oven
father gifts to sons with tightest hugs
family all together
candlelit services

Emmanuel, God with Us

Celebrating in JOY with,
