One Sunday in October we ventured out to a ranch in the Nebraska Sandhills. Matt & Grace were just 2 of 13 people that were baptized in the freezing water. What a wonderful day! They are the third generation (on Dave's side) to be baptized in this river. What an amazing heritage! I am so proud of them, they took the initiative, they understood what statement they were making on this day and they strive daily to live a life that is pleasing to God. I am so blessed to call them my children. Someday it will be Aaron's turn. If I do nothing else in this world I hope that I succeed in being an example to my children of Christ's love and mercy.
This week we also started reading the scripture of Advent. I found them at Focus on theFamily. Last night, we watched The Nativity. We are beginning new Christmas traditions in our household. How about you? Are you doing anything new this year?
As I said, this is my favorite time of the year & I can't really put words to why it is. It is something I feel deep inside of me every year at this time. I am in awe as I remember the greatest Gift and deepest Love that has ever been given. God sent His Son to earth as a babe. This year remember to celebrate the birthday of the King of Kings above all else. Merry Christmas!
