Merry Christmas, friends!
Look at this adorable picture my friend Matt drew for us:
I love it!
I also thought I'd post our family Christmas card here. I made it and I am very happy with it. The photo on the front is from our session with Elizabeth Wiggs.
I decided I wanted to acknowledge Garrett because it just felt wrong not to. I also wanted to do it tastefully so this is what I came up with.
That verse is 2 Thessalonians 3:16: Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.
Another passage especially meaningful to me this holiday season is Romans 5:1-4:
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
We are thankful today for the hope, love, and comfort that only comes from a Savior.
