Tis the season… to stop blogging.

I’m taking the next two weeks off from posting new material here at I’m Just Thinkin’, to enjoy the holidays and spend extra time with my family and friends. I would encourage you to do the same. Be back on January 3rd.

Newtown CT Heroes

Sandy Hook Heroes

Until then, here are the two things that I’ll always remember from this Christmas season:

  • The little kids. Sad. How do we turn something good from this tragedy in Newtown? Please watch this very short video interview with Andy Stanley. Our national and personal conscience and the centering of right from wrong potentially benefits from tragic events like this… if that’s a rational choice we make. Andy says it’s in the power of the Christmas story that we find hope to move forward… through the innocence and vulnerability we strive to understand, relate to and see in the newborn King, Jesus.
  • The power of the Christmas story brings hope. Not a typo. Yep, I repeated some of the last sentence of the previous paragraph. Why? The beauty of the Gospel is everywhere we look. I see it in my life every single day. Stick around and I’ll be sharing more about what I’m learning on my journey…

In the mean time, please consider signing here up for email updates (Santa is on his way you know!).

“Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom His favor rests.” Luke 2:14

Don’t forget to put out lots of milk and cookies for the jolly old fellow 🙂

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
