God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen

Let nothing you dismay....

Why was this tune stuck in my head today? Yes, I know. Not Christmas. In fact, currently there is no snow on the ground. Of course, as all Hoosiers know, it's basketball sectional time. AND during basketball sectional time, it always snows. And snows a lot. And then some more. So, even though those weather guys are tempting us to put up our woolies, at least THIS Indiana chickie is keeping the sweaters and mittens close at hand.

No, it's the chorus:

Oh, tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy.

We continue to live within this bubble of community prayer. And in that place, there is comfort. Comfort in what we know about God. Comfort in the words and wishes of so many friends. Comfort in resting in the Father's arms.

And so joy.

Joy, joy, joy.

And, by the way, peace that passes all understanding.

Thought you'd like to know.


  1. So glad you can feel the prayers & have that joy. Our family prays for you, each morning Morgan & I each pray for you and throughout the day, we have close to our hearts and minds and pray.

    Thanks for the updates, Lynne,I look forward to each one.

  2. As we continue to pray for you and for Mike, may that peace that passes all understanding grip your hearts and minds and hold them tenderly, even as God holds you tenderly and lovingly in His Mighty Hand.
