This Tuesday and Wednesday our church is inviting all to come celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. I can't wait for everyone to bring friends who don't know Christ and to see the impact on the community we are trying to reach for Him.
May God truly bless all your churches this Christmas season, and may many put their faith in the one true Saviour.
I have many things this Christmas that I won't get a chance to do, but experiencing the true meaning of Christmas with those I love, will definitely be accomplished.
I love you all my sweet blogging buddies! Merry Christmas:)

Hey Blogging Friends, I wanted to let you know about a new business my husband is beginning. It is called Skip Paints and he is doing individual paintings in an impressionistic style. Skip has been painting since before we married, but only recently has felt the longing to make his hobby into something more in his limited free time.
If you are interested in seeing just a few of his works, go here. He is starting to take orders, and you can get a price list by emailing him from the website if you are interested in learning more. Each painting is done in heavy oil paints, and can be shipped if needed.
I only have a few original paintings in my home, but there is just something so special about an original work of art. The feel/texture and look which is different from what anyone else has, as well as the artist's eye and interpretation of it's subject.
Go by and take a look. A painting of your children would make an excellent gift for your spouse, parents, or yourself.

This year has been good. It is so nice to see those words written on my blog. Seasons of trials are never fun, but trust me when I say that God is working even when we don't understand. I read over last year's Christmas post and even though things are still stabilizing, we are in such a better place as a family.
I am thrilled with all that God is doing in the lives of each of my children. The tuition I pay for private school is really putting a pinch on things, but when I see them excelling and enjoying their environment so much, it warms my heart more than anything. It also reminds me that I may eventually get a new car in the year 2020.
Here are Seth and Annie right before they left for their school's Christmas program.

Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.
In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation." Psalm 5:3
