This past month has been one of gratitude and grace. I (Brooke) have loved being a part of our Missional Community and were blessed to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal with them plus many international students that attend the University of Oklahoma. We also had the opportunity to spend time with both of our families for Thanksgiving. Although we missed our Kentucky family that we spent several holidays with, we are so thankful to be near Henry's grandparents, aunts, and uncles and that he is getting to spend lots of time with them.
This past week was a little crazy around the Frymire household. Our sweet little Henry decided he was mad and that the only solution was to throw a toy firetruck at our TV. We are learning material things aren't of the utmost importance as things get broken weekly in our house but Jay and I decided it's time to bunker down and figure out the art of parenting a strong willed toddler. We are reading books and asking for advice as well as praying that God will use his strong and social personality to make him a great leader who loves people well as he continues to grow.
I also had a scare a few days ago and fell onto concrete, while holding Henry. Jesus protected my two babies well as my face took one for the team. Our daughter, Eden Grace, is moving lots, measuring well, and will be here sometime in the next 8 weeks. Being pregnant this time of year is an absolute joy to me, as I not only await her birth, but anticipate celebrating the birth of Jesus. This past weekend some girls from my MC threw a baby shower for her and although we have only been here about four months, the love our family has been shown from our new community is such a blessing to us.
As 2016 is coming to a close, we want to once again thank all of you who have supported us and prayed for us these past 4+ months. We love each of you and pray you take this Christmas season to dwell on Jesus.
"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only son from the Father, full of grace and truth." (John 1:14)
