Hope you’ve enjoyed this peek into days with Jacob. It was fun writing it trying to incorporate many of his favorites. He doesn’t have high expectations this time of year like many of us humans do. A wish list that’s a mile long. I found one his brother did decades ago and every other line said MONEY! Jacob’s imaginary list takes the pressure off us. ‘Who needs money’ is what he’s thinking.

Whatever your wish list looks like or more importantly your list of needs, may this season bring you unseen riches of peace, love, and joy.

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
