Day 14 -- Traditions
2 Thessalonians 2:15 So then, brothers and sisters stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.
As I was shopping on Friday, I happened by this jar of pickled herring. This type of herring was a Christmas time tradition for my dad and me. I smiled as I placed it in my cart. Pickled herring and oyster stew were a couple of traditions with Dad and I. Mom and my sister didn't care for either one, I liked that this was "our" thing. Today would have been my dad's 78th birthday, I miss him a lot and know that he'll be smiling as he watches me enjoy our Christmas tradition.
Happy Birthday Dad!
