a reminder to give… with love…

A comment at the wedding

I have no recollection of opening gifts…

The reference… Christmas Eve 2011… my siser-in-law hosting… along with my brother/her husband… both hosting… their 4 children… 3 spouses… 7 grandchildren (all 8 years and under)… plus  another brother… me… my husband… and 3 children (ages 18-22)… 19 guests in their home… 21 people total… for dinner and gifts…

But… in addition to the crowd… it rained all day… less than two hours before church… the Christmas Eve service… a funeral in the rain… burying her long-time black Lab… who died on the porch that day…

Who would remember?

So today’s offering… a memory jar… for my dear sister-in-law… in hopes of sparking the neurons that hold the treasures of Christmas Eve 2011…

I hope this helps… a reminder… to remember… thanks for such a great time… and please know…

I thank my God every time I remember you.
Philippians 1:3
