There was enough emotional balance in our home to allow me to leave to help prepare and serve Christmas Eve dinner to the on-duty Minneapolis officers and staff.
There was enough peace in our home for us all to enjoy and participate in the Christmas Eve service at church. Both Speed and Soar were candle lighters and did a great job!
There was enough personal margin to allow silliness and fun late on Christmas Eve. (That green pea-pod isn't holding a small child....nope it was a VERY large one and I almost wet myself because it was sooooo funny.)
There was enough planning to allow for 'enough' but not too much in the way of gifts.
Enough friends to share the joy with....
Enough to play this this small part in the larger plan.
Enough strength to watch as Russia contemplated closing it's doors to adoptive families....and then did...or didn't...Enough patience to keep watch with friends who's hearts are pierced as the little ones they treasure are perhaps uncontrollably separated from them.
Enough faith to pray over families facing adoption disruptions, mental health crisis and scary horrible realities at home.
Enough is my key word through this Advent season.
Enough at every turn.
Enough because of Jesus.
