It has become increasingly hard to get a good picture of all of us and 4 kids is no exception! We had the card done in September, so Parker has grown so much!! Thank you to our fabulous photographer Christine Meeker who always knows how to get the perfect picture! http://www.christinemeeker.com
I have lots to say, but not enough time to write today (never fear I will be back to write), but I want to share from Rick Warren..
"But the angel said to them, "... I bring you good news of greatjoy that will be for all the people." Luke 2:10 (NIV)
Knowing that Christmastime is God's chosen time teaches us that Christmas is the time for us to renew our faith.
We need not fear God because of the Good News of Christ's arrival; it is a Good News meant to "bring great joy to all people." (Luke 2:10 NLT)
What is the Good News?
You matter to God: God knows everything about you -- the good, the bad, and the ugly -- and He still loves you. He cares about you. He loves you more than you could ever know. God is for you, not against you.
You are not an accident: Regardless of the circumstances of your birth, you were not the result of an accident. God has a plan and a purpose for your life. The only way you will find meaning and satisfaction is to discover God's purpose for your life and then to get right into the center of his will. "
And from our Christmas card..
May the gifts you receive this Christmas be the ones that abide in your heart-the peace of God...the presence of His joy...the warmth of His love.
