Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

I can't help but think back to where we were a year ago today. Last year on Christmas Day, we were bringing home the sweetest gift we could ask for, our daughter.


And here we are 1 amazing year later, still thanking God for the sweet, spunky and beautiful daughter he gave us!

As I reflect on the true meaning of Christmas, I've realized that having a child has really helped me to understand Christ's love at a deeper level. The fact that God's love for us was so great that he was willing to send His only son Jesus here to earth to pay the price for our sins is mind blowing to me. That has to be a beyond powerful kind of love that I can't even fathom.
As easy as it is to get caught up in the family, presents, food, and all the other things that Christmas brings, let's remember that this time of year is to celebrate love; the powerful love of God that was merciful enough to send us a Redeemer in the form of a baby. Without Jesus, we would have no hope. There would be no reason to celebrate! If we truly believe that, let's be mindful of that today as we celebrate the birth of Christ!

Wishing you all a very special day with your friends, family and whoever you choose to spend this Christmas with! 
And to all the mamas out there, wishing you a silent night :)

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

  3. I hope that you enjoyed your day today. Christmas with kids is SO much fun! And, by the way, you look amazing in the picture of you going home from the hospital last year. I was still soo fat when I came home from the hospital. I had a lot of complications during pregnancy with fluid and blood pressure, but STILL...it was awful! :)
