Christmas Update

Thanks for your prayers for Sarah. The spinal tap went really smooth yesterday. Today has been hard for Sarah so please keep her in your prayers.

We hope that she feels better by Saturday so she can enjoy the Christmas weekend. This is the third year of battling this sickness and we are ready to have a normal Christmas. Two years ago she was sick in Hong Kong. We did not know it was Leukemia but she could not even sit up Christmas morning. Last year she was in the hospital with a mysterious virus. We left only a few days before Christmas. And this year we have a spinal tap a few days before Christmas and Sarah has stayed in her pajamas since returning home yesterday.

In all of this she is still so courageous. She still keeps her smile and somehow finds a way to be excited about everyone's presents. Tonight we were watching a movie and she looked at me and said, "Daddy, what did you do to mommy's stocking?" She could see it was filled today.

We try to remember that we celebrate the birth of a Savior who was totally inconvenienced by coming to earth to save us. His earthly parents had to live outside and Jesus was forced to be born in a stable. I am sure they wanted it easier, but God had other plans. We continue to want it easier, but does easier mean better?

I pray all of you have a Merry Christmas and continue to seek the King of Kings even in the hard times of life.
