What a blessed Christmas weekend!
James 1:17 says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”
Friday evening, we spent Christmas Eve at Brad’s sister’s place with his family.
As we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ this year, let us remember the reason He came and imitate Him by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Isaiah 9:6 says, “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Wonderful means inspiring delight, pleasure, or admiration; extremely good; marvelous.
Saturday, my parents came over to watch Luke, so my husband Brad and I could have a lunch date together.
We drove to downtown Greenville to one of our favorite hidden gems with Greek dishes.
The appetizers or small plates made for a delicious treat.
Little Luke is growing so quickly and interacting with us more and more!
This past month, Luke has been much more aware of his surroundings, smiling at those who smile at him, including inanimate toys.
He is holding up his head like a champ and now sucking his thumb.
Around the age of six, I committed to follow Jesus Christ, and He has been faithful to keep me.
There have been many ups and downs.
Through family devotions and my parents’ examples, I recognized what Jesus had done by dying on the cross for my sins.
Learning to be a mom has been filled with ups and downs.
In the midst of the exhaustion of sleepless nights, it is hard at times to focus, to remain calm and to treasure each moment.
Yet, it is amazing how much one can accomplish while sleep deprived.
Today—Wednesday, November 10, 2021—marks two months with our precious son, Lucas.
He is growing so quickly; he is already getting ready for the fourth diaper size.
Luke is a happy baby, showering us with smiles and giggles many mornings and enjoying snuggles on a regular basis.
'Tis the season to give thanks!
While many of us focus on thanksgiving this month, a habit of giving thanks all year long is a good one to develop.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 says, “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
