// First Christmas in Queens
Well it’s Christmas time in the city, and it truly is magical! It has been so fun experiencing things you see on Christmas movies with our own eyes, and it’s even greater getting to experience it together.
Although we do get to do fun things here, it is bittersweet to know that this will be our first Christmas being far from from friends and our family.
We are grateful God has provided financially for us to go to Texas to visit Summer’s Mom and our families during this season of trial in her health. We knew we wouldn’t be able to just go right back for Christmas either, but we got to enjoy some Christmas things with family in or last trip.
Being in NYC pushes us even more to cling to one another and develop our own traditions in our marriage in this season. We’ve enjoyed reading through a great advent book, getting our first real Christmas tree, and going to Christmas parties with new friends. We’ve been able to develop some sweet friendships since we’ve been here, and that has been so good for us to make it easier to call this place home. God is good to grant us all these blessings, and we are so thankful for your continued prayers on the really good and harder days.
We’ve got some big things coming up for Queens Church in 2019 and we can’t wait to see it all happen!
