while the turkey was in the oven...

 we watched Washington and troops re-enact the crossing of the Delaware.
  It was the very COLD day of 
Christmas 25, 2110. 
wounded soldiers
walked around
with bloodied bandages.
The occasional
blanket feast of wine and cheese
(must be the history lover's "tailgate").
...and i wondered...
how many in the thousand
of this day
walk around
with the type of
wound that
can not be band-aid "ed"?

Psalm 34:18

    The LORD is near to the brokenhearted
      And saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Emmanuel. God with us!


  1. I love your thoughts on this... I would guess that just like us they all carried wounds that could only be healed by the Healer himself! Happy WFW!

  2. Great post - i saw your comment on Amanda's blog and just had to stop in.

  3. That was one of my favorite Christmas Days! :D Love being married to you as you have so many fun and creative ideas!

    I am also glad that he is our Emmanuel and that he never leaves us.
