Feeling Festive

As the calender pages turned to December, our family took a day to prepare for the joyous Christmas season. What a beautiful season this is to celebrate! The wonder of a King born in a manger. A Savior. Love personified. Forgiveness possible. Fellowship restored. We have reason to celebrate!

Since we're home this December, we've enjoyed the opportunity to make our home festive for the season. This included the adventure of looking for just the right tree to decorate our home!

On the quest for the perfect tree.

Mission accomplished!

Tying it down

Our strong men carrying it to the house.
[With a few exaggerated dramatics!]

The decorating begins!

Each ornament in place.

Bringing out our manger scenes.

The finished product!

"Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son,
and they shall call His name Immanuel,"
which is translated, "God with us."
Matt 1:23

Enjoying Asher

Babies are such a joy! And we've been treasuring each moment we have with little Asher David. What a treat it is to watch him grow and change -- almost daily! I'm always in awe of how perfectly and wonderfully the Lord has knit each newborn. And I may be biased, but the babies in our family are just the cutest ever! *smile*





"I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well."
