Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve 2009 - presents under the tree, stockings ready, youngest child with 101 fever, and snow in the forecast.

Praying for sickness to go away very quickly and the snow to hold off until after the family get-together on Saturday!

Praying that everyone realizes the real reasons to celebrate Christmas: Jesus came to earth so everyone could have a relationship with God; presents to remember the gifts given by the wisemen (and by God), lights to remember the Light of the World, and the tree to remember the cross. We are blessed.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved." John 3:16-17

Merry Christmas

My last post was quite a while ago. We've been trying to get the harvest done but the weather hasn't cooperated. My husband is on the combine again today trying to get as much done before more possible snow tomorrow.

I've gotten the Christmas shopping done and the house is ready for the large family get-together. Other than wrapping presents, I can relax until Christmas and enjoy the Season!

My 17 y.o. is doing pretty good in school. He is starting a new seizure medicine today. If he does okay on it, we will lower one of his other meds.

4 y.o. is very excited about Christmas to say the least. She keeps asking me if I want to open my presents yet and she wants to know where her presents are.

I worked very hard on the biography this Fall and I received a lot of great research information and photographs.. I won't be able to work on it any more until after New Year's Day.

I pray God's blessings on you this Christmas season as you follow Him.
Matthew 1:20-21 “But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
