"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.
If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

OUR CHRISTMAS TREE AND FIRST DAY OF ADVENT
















































WE WERE ABLE TO GO AND GET A CHRISTMAS TREE TODAY AS WELL AS HAVE OUR FIRST DAY OF ADVENT.  THIS WAS HAILE AND BETI'S FIRST TIME EVER GETTING A CHRISTMAS TREE AND BRINGING IT HOME.  YOU HAVE TO WONDER WHAT THEY ARE THINKING ABOUT IT ALL-BUT THEY SEEM TO BE HAPPY AND EXCITED JUST LIKE THE OTHER KIDS.  THEY HAD FUN AND WE HAD A GOOD FAMILY TIME TONIGHT CELEBRATING THE FIRST DAY OF ADVENT.  WE FOUND A GREAT RESOURCE FOR THIS THROUGH FOCUS ON THE FAMILY-HERE IS THE LINK AND BEST OF ALL-IT IS FREE TO PRINT!:

WE ALSO HAD EACH CHILD DRAW A NAME OF ANOTHER PERSON IN THE FAMILY AND FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER-THAT IS THEIR "SPECIAL" PERSON.  THEY NEED TO TRY HARD TO BLESS THEM IN LITTLE WAYS THROUGHOUT THE DAYS AND WILL EACH GET TO GO AND GET ONE GIFT TO PUT UNDER THE TREE (FROM THE DOLLAR STORE) FOR THAT PERSON.  WE THINK IT WILL BE FUN AND A GOOD WAY FOR THEM TO HOPEFULLY GET ALONG BETTER. :-)

"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
