Merry Christmas Eve!!

"For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." (Is. 9:6)

The joy of Christmas has filled my heart! It is an answered prayer! The past few years seemed to have sucked the magic and fun out of the holidays- but praise God His joy, the joy of His Son's birth has returned to me the true meaning of Christmas this year! I am so thankful!! I am humbled by His love and sacrifice!! I am no longer a Scrooge or Grinch- my heart has grown three sizes, because I made room for Jesus!!
***Make room for Jesus too!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight!!!!

"This I recall to mind. Therefore I have hope. The Lord's loving-kindnesses indeed never cease. For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is thy faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22-23

I am blessed to have a wonderful, loving husband, two beautiful children, a nice home, friends who have been so gracious to me, family who are the most fun, a job that allows me to do what I love to do!! Most importantly, a Savior, who loves me despite my bad attitude! My heart is overwhelmed by the love of Christ! Lately, it seems like every nook and cranny of my life has been filled with love- it has been nice and much needed! I am looking forward to the holidays with much more peace than the last few years!
We have been super busy!! We had a lovely thanksgiving- we actually got five days to spend together as a family! We have decorated for Christmas- our first Christmas in our new house! Clint and I just celebrated 9 years married- we have truly been living happily ever after!! We are looking forward to Christmas break! Sixteen days to relax and enjoy each other's company!! God has been so good to us!!
