Great Christmas. Went to Disneyland with J’s family, which was awesome. We had a lot of good laughs. I couldn’t believe how warm it was. Winter in LA. Now I see why my SoCal friends have a hard time adjusting to SF.
Family Christmas in Hercules was a lot of fun. The second annual game of two-tower Jenga was great. I was most impressed with my grandpa’s steady hand in the game.
Still enjoying a few more days of rest before school starts up again. I think one of the best presents I received from my students was a plastic trophy that said “Winner” on it. Oh yeah!
God reminded me of Christmas’s real meaning on Christmas Eve. I was suddenly struck with how I got so consumed with buying gifts and playing that I had forgotten. We were once in darkness, and Christ was born, Emmanuel, God with us. So hopeful.
