I can't believe that I haven't posted since October. Things have been real crazy here. Not a good thing so I will not spoil my time here mentioning it. I'll just say we need your prayers. :)
I miss you all so much. I am sorry I have missed what has been going on with you and yours. I pray that you and your families are all well and enjoying the holiday season.
This is what I am missing a lot. I love snow. Isn't it pretty? This is a picture of the snow in the area that we lived in, in the mountains of northern Utah. We always got several feet of snow. It was great.
Here in Washington state the weather is different. Well, in the western part of the state anyway. We have only had a little frost. Lots of rain and freezing temps. Oh and wind that knocks everything over outside too. Lol But no snow.
About the season....I have been thinking a lot about Jesus and what he did for us. I do think about this all year round but especially now when we celebrate his birth.
I don't think any of us can really understand just how much He did for us. He came from a place where He had glory like God, to be born in a manger. He lived a sinless life that we would do well to do our best to imitate. He taught us how to live, to serve each other to love each other. He loved us so much that we did all this and died for us. Suffered the pains that we should suffer for our sins. He did it so that we wouldn't have to if we would believe in Him and come unto Him.
He also suffered all of the feelings of all of us who lived, are living now and who will yet live on this earth. He felt every emotion that we would ever feel...physical, mental and emotional pain....sadness, loneliness, hate, anger, guilt, dispare, depression, love, happiness and so much more. He did this so that He would know how to help and succor us in our times of need.
I am so grateful for this. And honestly can’t thank Him enough.
I would love to write more but I am limited on the library computer.
Have a wonderful Christmas. Remember the reason for the season.
Please leave comments letting me know how you are doing. Take care and see you next year.
