A Blessed Season!
I had a fantastic Christmas.
We had a great time! So thankful for a merciful God. So thankful for the Christ-child who became the saviour of us all.
Stephen and I don't give each other Christmas gifts anymore. What more could I want? God's grace is sufficient for me!
I am however, gifted with an incredible family.
I am so blessed by my own family, as well as the one I married into. I had a great time with everyone I got to see this year, and my husband is on holidays for 8 more days!
Now that Christmas is over, I am getting to work on my garden and on my house. I've been painting walls, digging, and having all manner of fun with the children, who are my best and most enthusiastic helpers.
The house is getting messier by the day and the laundry is piling up, but that is what holidays are for.
Eli's little face yesterday when he woke up from his nap and saw the wall had changed colour was great too. 'Wow!! Owange!'
Jo is 9 months old and doing something new every day. Yesterday it was having a little frustrated cry because he couldn't stand on his own (he only started pulling up on furniture a week ago and now he thinks he should be able to let go and stay standing.) A determined little man.
Here is a picture taken moments before he pulled up for the first time. I put the camera down and turned back just in time to see him pull up, then catch him as he toppled over the side. Death-defying stuff. That crazy Y chromosome again.
I hope that you and yours had a great Christmas too, and that, if you do not know Him who sent the precious babe; that you earnestly seek Him!
Watching this new gem from Ray Comfort may be a blessing as you search.
