This year holiday stress is at another level in our world. Not so much the shopping, gift list, constant party to go to feeling, no, we have 3 very big services over the next 8 days.

On Christmas Eve we will hold 2 services to replace our Sunday. Then, on New Years Eve, we will have our annual party that is a massive undertaking. I can not let the cat out of the bag, but we have gone over the top this year in an effort to improve on what is already a magnificent event. Creativity is wonderful.

On New Years day, we have rented the municipal stadium and will have a service at 11:00 a.m. (if we can wake up) and then an afternoon of flag football, blow up games for the kids, a train, a 30 foot bar b que. To say it will be crunk is an understatement.

Oh, and I still am not done shopping, but that will have to take place tomorrow.

Favor is a funny thing. I believe that God is always looking to bless your life but there seems to be significant seasons of favor that fall from time to time. I don’t know if it has to do with circadian rhythm, dumb luck, or just Gods provisional hand, but seasons change, morph, and develop. I have been approached with a new opportunity to invest and feel that this could be a moment in a season of favor.
