Hi Friends and happy Friday! I could not be more excited to share our family photo session from our recent trip to Napa! Gosh, looking back through these photos makes me want to jump on a plane and go back! I promise a Napa guide and review in early 2018!
As we approach Christmas this year, I ask you to find happiness in your heart and share goodwill. There is nothing like the magic that Christmas brings, it warms hearts that have felt cold throughout the entire year. It is not about giving or receiving gifts, though everyone looks forward it. It is about spending time with loved ones and friends and really appreciating the additional warmth that they bring to the Christmas season. And most importantly, let’s not forget the true meaning of Christmas. JESUS is the reason for the season! It is a time of God showing His great love for us! It can be a time of healing and renewed strength. You see, Christmas is when we celebrate the birth of the Christ child. God sent His Son, Jesus, into the world to be born. His birth brought great joy to the world! Because of this we can truly be happy at Christmas! No matter what may be happening, we can know that we are His children and we are truly loved by Him!
I’ll leave you with a message from our Christmas card this year; 2017 has been an exciting year! We trusted in the Lord with all our hearts and prayed a lot. This summer we were blessed to sell our first home and moved to the Austin area for the hubs job. The scenery has changed but our door is always open to family and friends like you! So this season, we are decking new halls and want to wish you a Merry Christmas and many blessings in the New Year!
The hubs and I are cooking breakfast, sipping champs and exchanging gifts this AM! I’m so excited, the little kid on Christmas morning definitely comes out in me! With that said I’m checking off for a few days to spend the most wonderful time of the year with family! Merry Christmas, friends!
all we are and all we need is found in Jesus Christ alone.
