Christmas 2018

Sitting and gazing at the beautiful tree taking in all the smells, sights, sounds, beauty and emotion of the Christmas Season. Purposely praticing being still, talking with the Lord and taking His peace that passes all understanding, into my heart. I hope in the coming year, the Lord blesses you with peace, hope, love, faith, health, comfort and restoration, especially for those in a season of loss or pain. I am so grateful for the virgin birth of Jesus Christ our Lord, His atoning sacfrice and His eternal love. Jesus is the true reason for Christmas. It is easy to lose site of that, but pausing to be still reminds me of that.

This year we continued the Winter Wonderland theme in our Christmas decor. Here are a few shots of our Christmas home. Welcome in my friends.
