I love Sundays like the one today. Ryan has been asked to speak about once a month in main service at our church, Mission. I, of course, have heard Ryan speak countless times but I never get tired of hearing what God has put on his heart each week. Recently, I have been sitting in all 5 services when he speaks main stage and I just absolutely love it! I love being by his side, I love that people see me by his side as his companion, and I love that the worship draws me closer to God with each service. You’d think it would sadly get a little monotonous. I mean, 5 services of the same songs and same message?!?! There is just something about being in the midst of community where I feel safe, loved, and valued and worshiping together that can fill my spirit. I must admit, we were both wiped when we got home but we’ve had a fun night of packing for our trip to Ohio tomorrow! I can’t wait to see my family and start this Christmas week. I need the rest, I need my family, I must must must have some cuddles from my nephew, and I can’t forget all the home-cooked meals! To be honest, I’m so ready for 2009 to be over but I’m hoping these last few weeks are filled with reflection on what God has done in our lives, where He has brought us, and where He will take us in the coming year!

What are you looking forward to most this Christmas week? What will you reflect on from this past year and what are your hopes for 2010?

Where we'll be spending Christmas

  1. You are such a great wife Linds! I am mostly looking forward to spending time with family this Christmas. I’m ready for new beginnings in 2010. I’m hoping for God’s provision and a new place to belong. I’m hoping for life long friends. I’m hoping and praying for health. I’m hoping and praying that God will heal Kate McRae. I hope that 2010 is better than 2009 and that I have as much hope and faith, even when life isn’t as hard as it’s been.
    I love you and will miss you while you’re gone. Love on that adorable nephew of yours! Coffee when you get back! xoxo Merry Christmas love!

  2. Hey Lindsay
    I always enjoy hearing Ryan speak too.When he talks about things that he went through when he was younger,I can relate to many of them.It makes it easy to apply much of what he says to my own life.Mission is such an awesome church!Katy and I are praying for God’s direction in some things,so we plan to spend as much time together as possible since I have to work Christmas day,and we’re expecting God to move in our lives.Merry Christmas to you and Ryan.

  3. Enjoy Ohio and stay safe! Can’t wait to see you in 2011.

    Question 1. I’m looking forward to spending the first Christmas vacation with Ryan and my family that lasts more than four days.

    Question 2. I’ll be reflecting upon the dream I wasn’t able to touch this year…surrendering it to God, strengthening my faith in His timing and provision, and making sure I stop feeling like I failed.

  4. btw – i hope i see you in 2010 too. Hahaha!
