  1. I envy you this memory, as we slog into Christmas living hard with our heads barely above-water, hoping to be open enough to welcome dear friends to our home. What is our part this year but to trust that He came to hold us…

    Thank you for sharing, Amber. I completely love your heart.

  2. Amber, girl, I love the way you love this big ol’ world and all of the people in it. You’ve got a heart as beautiful and wide as the sea. Thank you sharing it with us here. Merry Christmas, friend!

  3. We do, don’t we? We each have a part to play.
    You play your part so well, Amber. So very well…

    Merry Christmas to you to your sweet, sweet family!

  4. Love, love, love every word. I agree that we all have a part and as my part this Christmas is illness, intense pain, I have struggled against how my part brings glory. Thanks for reminding me that the body is a Whole, and other parts are reaching out even as others reach into the Body for me.

  5. oh..this brings back such good memories of years past, celebrating the birth of Jesus with International students…as well as with our friends in China. The story coming alive and fresh again for me – as if I were also hearing it for the first time with some of them…and such a beautiful picture of what heaven will be like!

    I have so deeply appreciated the writing here this Christmas season. We have a little girl who is not expected to live long – she is 7 months old and she has ‘heart spells’ when her heart stops beating and she struggles to breathe. Your honest words minister to me. Thank-you.
