Christmas is such a magical time. . .
to spending time with loved ones. . .
Christmas is so special.
And as I said before, Christmas is spending time in AWE of the grace we have received.
This Christmas was relaxing. . . full of laughter, food, and fellowship.
I spent early Christmas morning reading this on Wynne's recommendation.
The puppies praying that they got a little taste of Christmas lunch.
And funny gifts. . .
and, of course, a Christmas Day nap! :-)
We had a gracious guest this year at Christmas!
Parker invited a Rice MBA friend from China who was delightful and so very thoughtful.
My dad reading Luke 2 to the family took on a whole new meaning when someone at the table had never heard the story of Jesus.
I always get excited about new beginnings. . .
a new year.
God perfectly planned 2012 for Nate and I. His hand was over us the entire year and I could physically feel his arms around us, holding us, loving us.
I pray that in 2013 we walk through the year Kingdom Minded. . . knowing that this is not our home and that we are looking towards something greater. Praying each morning that God directs our steps rather than waking up and plowing through the day on our own.
Let 2013 be a year of daily dying to self and consciously growing closer to Him.
I just finished a four month journey of listening to the Bible (per Robin's suggestion) (email me if you want a copy of the plan that I used) and am excited and renewed to begin a new study.
A friend and I are going to do Beth Moore's 2013 Scripture Memory but I am also looking for a daily bible study. I have couple in mind but would love some suggestions! :-)
I hope your Christmas was sweet and that you are ready for the New Year.
Thank you for reading.
Thank you for giving me a little spot in the blogging world of fellowship and the opportunity to share something I love.
I am so blessed.
