Philippians 4: 4-7 - "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
6 Days until we leave for CA! This will be our first Christmas in San Diego since 2005.
I'm always excited to go home to San Diego, but at the same time I find that I dread traveling more and more. Traveling with a toddler is surprisingly the least of my concerns. Please pray that this trip goes smoothly and that it doesn't get stressful while we're out there. Short trips like this tend to get stressful. We have 5 days in San Diego and 2 additional days of traveling. There are a lot of people that want to see us and that we want to see and it's tough to see everyone in just 5 days. But the Lord is at hand, and I know that there truly is nothing to be anxious about.
Please pray that Jesus remains the focus of the season for us, that we would rejoice in Him throughout our entire trip. Spending time with family and friends, seeing old familiar sites, eating delicious food, giving/receiving gifts; it's all wonderful, it's all good, but it means nothing if we are not loving, honoring, and glorifying our Lord and Savior Jesus.
