Merry Christmas to all of my wonderful blog readers out there. ¬†ūüôā ¬†I appreciate your encouragement throughout the year, and pray that God fills you with lots of love throughout this holiday season. ¬†This picture fills me with much nostalgia….Christmas 2000, when Joshua was 6 and our dog Fritzi was only 3. ¬†Enjoy each other. ¬†Love, Lisa

“All the Christmas¬†presents in the world are worth nothing without the presence of Christ.” ¬†~David Jeremiah

When I’m feeling overwhelmed with the seemingly endless and often routine shopping that surrounds Christmas, this thought grounds me. ¬†If the people I love have Jesus, they have everything. ¬†The only gift that matters in this short life. ¬†He gives eternal life, which is a gift past all imaginings and expectations. ¬†The flash and the sparkle fades away into a wooden manger; peace descends. ¬† Blessings, Lisa
