Until next time...

Someone didn't turn eighteen months today, but posed for his picture. I have been racing around all day getting ready to leave for our Colorado Christmas vacation that starts tomorrow. How can Christmas be this week? All I can say is that I am glad that I got my shopping done really early this year...Dallas traffic is for the birds. Here is my love bug. Shepherd is obsessed with anything that is hot. If it glows, steams, twinkles, whatever...it's apparently hot. In fact "it's hot","isley" (which means Lily) and ball are his three words. I love you Sheppie!

Hey everyone! I can't believe that the last time I posted was on Thanksgiving. Doesn't the holiday season pass by so quickly? How can it already be the 14th? The past few days I have been intentional about slowing my pace and resting in the midst of the chaos of the season. It seems like we have had something almost every night of the week the past two weeks. I did our Christmas card a few days ago. While I was trying to think about what I wanted it to say, I decided that I would pick three things that I was feeling and want to be more like in the next year. So I chose Thankful Hopeful and Joyful.
I received an email today that I believe was sent to me from the Lord. It said this:
Radiant with joy! What a promise. That is what I want to be. Come Lord Jesus, my hope is in you alone. Slow my pace and make me joyful this day because of what you have done for me. Thank you for leaving your throne to by my substitution.
