So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them. ~Luke 2:4-7
2021 has been a challenging year for us. From Danny's pacemaker issues and subsequent heart ablation to Mom's illness in the spring and summer that eventually leads to her passing, we have been through the proverbial wringer.
As Christmas is right around the corner, with the New Year close on its heels, I've decided to take some time away from blogging to reflect upon all that's transpired, to open my heart and mind to the wonder of our Savior's birth, and to prayerfully contemplate my hopes and dreams for 2022. Maybe, this season of rest and regrouping will also reveal to my my word for the year to come.
Thank you all who have loyally followed Meditations of My Heart throughout the year. Each of you is dear to me, and your thoughtful comments always make my heart sing.
May you have a Merry and Blessed Christmas, and a safe, prosperous New Year filled with love, joy and peace!
