Merry Christmas, Jordan

Merry Christmas, Jordan – my baby, my son!

This Christmas, we see Jesus in the image of Manger Scenes. But you – you. see. Jesus.

This Christmas, we continue to see “as in a mirror darkly.” But you – you see “face to face.”

This Christmas, we continue to “know in part.” But you, my son, you “know fully.” (1 Cor. 13:11-12)

This Christmas Eve, as we cried & prayed as a family, we thanked God for the almost 20 years He loaned you to us. And we thanked God for eternal life made possible to us through Christ Jesus, in whose presence you now live.

One more thing: I must tell you that, during supper tonight, the Holy Spirit filled your sister, Macy, as she gave the most powerful, courageous & joy-filled “pep talk” to all of us around the table. It was a “moment.” The Spirit of the risen Christ was upon her. It is a moment I will never forget.

I love you so much. I miss you so very, very much.

Merry Christmas, my son! Merry Christmas!

Dad
