My younger daughter has come home from college for semester break. My older daughter is busy making last-minute preparations for her wedding in less than three weeks and starting a new job right after Christmas. I have a new little puppy who is keeping me busy. My future son-in-law is learning to wrap Christmas presents this year. Our home is not quite as quiet as it had been for almost four months. It makes me happy to hear a “joyful noise” in the house again. God is good!
