You all… I know I have been so very quiet here.
I have so much to say.
And yet feel it isn't the time.
So for now, these fun pictures capture some of where I am.
My dear, dear friend Hillary from capturing motherhood
has been the hands of Jesus to me and my family
and she gifted us with her time and talent to take some pictures.
This first one, there are many in a series that just make me
smile so very much.
I saw the pretty leaves and said, "Hey lets do this!"
Because throwing my hands in the air
and jumping with abandon
that's right where I am.
Letting go of so very much
and reaching with arms wide open to the God of angels armies
whose always by my side!
The baby whose birth we celebrate,
the man whose life saved ours.
The God who holds us up by His righteous right hand.
I pray this season you're able to strip away the unneceesary too.
To look up and rejoice over the only gift that matters.
"Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign:
Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son,
and she will call His name Immanuel.
The one to be called Immanuel,
God with us.
Do you feel Him with you?
Because He is.
Whether you sense it strongly,
or in a still small whisper.
Love came down at Christmas
for you, for me.
To be the God who is calling us to
to reach up,
to hold onto Him
