It may be a few days late but Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from Jitney's Journeys!!
To keep in theme with our travel photos for the past few years on our Christmas cards, we wanted to use a photo from our trip to Japan (Nov. - mid-Dec) this year which means I had to design it, order it and get them shipped to our house all before we returned home (don't you just love the conveniency of the Internet??). We took this beaut when venturing through Kyoto. The initial plan was to address the cards between our return to Huntsville and our travel plans to see family but I came down with the flu. It was awful. Awful, I say! But thanks to an amazing husband who bought lots of take-out and kept a steady supply of saltines, Gatorade and soup, coupled with Tamiflu, I was well by the end of the week... just in time to leave for my parents' house. Needless to say, we were late getting our postcards out this year. But it's okay... next year we'll get them out in time! (Pretty sure I said that last year too, though.)
This Christmas was a little different than normal. It's been a tough year for my family (I may share more about it later) but one thing is for sure... This Christmas we celebrated the most precious gifts of all: Salvation, Redemption, Family and New Beginnings. In the last two weeks, I've had more heart-to-hearts than I've had in a while. Talks where we poured our hearts out to each other, encouraged each other with Truth and prayed for one another. After seeing what's He's done this year, I'm so thrilled to see what God's going to do in 2015!
What about you? How was your Christmas? What are you looking forward to in 2015?
