Home for the Holidays #15

Closing out 2014 with a picture of the throw-up bucket is just wrong.

There were so many good things about this year.

PB and I sat with our coffee cups by the fire this morning, remembering together.

Good times, hard times, accomplishments, struggles.

I’m so happy to be doing life with this man.

We’ll give each other a smooch at midnight, pray in the new year, and wake up to 2015.


“May the new year be blessed with good tidings
Till the next time I see you again.
And we’ll all join hands, and remember this moment,
And we’ll love and we’ll laugh, in the times that we have
till the season comes ’round again.”

~Till The Season Comes ‘Round Again ~ Vince Gill

 This is the moment I wait for all year.

Light reflecting in the faces of loved ones.

Row upon row of candles snuffing out the darkness.

The presence of Emanuel dripping warm.

Oh Holy Night.

“God, You’re here to rescue and heal us.”

We sang “O Come, All Ye Faithful” this morning….

…a church full of faithful people who came to worship.


We sang “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing”…

…a church full of voices giving glory to the newborn King.
