With a heart full of gratitude,
with a heart in awe of His mercy,
with a heart overwhelmed by His grace...
I give thanks.
a Christmas Eve service, a time to rejoice... with songs of deliverance, our candles held high
the gift of His Word and His promises... true
a time of celebration, a time to give thanks... a time to remember the gift of His love
the soft glow of lights, a roaring fire, sleeping babes, the anticipation of things to come
a silent night
and then... a white Christmas on the mountain with Grandmom & Pops
eyes of wonder and eyes of delight
and children-- never-tiring, always-laughing, ever-smiling... priceless gifts
Super Mario pajamas, a Transformers helmet, an acoustic guitar,
and the imagination of a 5-year old
family traditions... stockings on the table... an orange in the bottom... precious memories
big Uncle Dave and his family... they made it!
more homemade doughnuts, fabulous feasts, laughter around the table... all of us
new games & old, sled races & snow, cousins together, fun all around... family
funny faces & favorite jokes
and laps that always have room
Everyone together... the grandkids, all well... music & dancing... rejoicing
a wonderful year and the new one to come
and family to share them all
"Give thanks to the LORD, call on His name;
make known among the nations what He has done.
Sing ot Him, sing praise to Him;
tell of all His wonderful acts."
Psalm 105: 1-2
and the list continues...
