What a Mighty God We Serve!

What a mighty God we serve
What a mighty God we serve
Angels bow before Him
Heaven and Earth adore Him
What a mighty God we serve!

I've had this song stuck in my head since last night when Phil's dad arrived at our house. He and his wife Pat were in a pretty serious car accident on their way home from a cruise Sunday afternoon. Tom (Phil's dad) doesn't remember what happened, but they went off the road and crashed. Pat was air lifted to KMC, while his dad had a ride in an ambulance. Both will recover fine, but Pat is still in the hospital. Phil's dad got here and there were hugs and tears all around as we were reminded of what an amazing God we serve and we are so grateful that they are alive and here with us.

This event has completely overshadowed what our intended weekend plans were. We went up to Fresno to celebrate and see the performance of Phil's play that he wrote for NorthPointe Community Church. The play was great and was received well by the audience. Phil has worked so hard on writing it and I have helped him edit many drafts. We loved seeing the final product being performed in front of us. I am incredibly proud of him and his success. If any of you are in the Fresno area, I highly recommend seeing the play. It won't disappoint.

Our family has so much to be thankful for this Christmas season. I am so grateful for my part time job and my return to it in January, I love my little boys and my big boy (Phil), and I love our wonderful families. I am so proud of Phil for his success in writing and I am so thankful for the faithfulness of the Lord.

Merry Christmas!
