Merry Christmas

We were so blessed to celebrate Christ's birth together this year. Enjoy some pictures from our day!

Mary, did you know?

"The blind will see, the deaf will hear, the dead will live again.
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the praises of the Lamb!"

These words to this song have never hit me before with the realization that THIS will be Waverly's reality one day. Wow. What a great hope she has in heaven. That her first steps will be leaping into her Savior's arms. That her first words will be praises to her Creator. That her broken body that experiences the sting of death every day will be made whole and perfect.

During this season, don't let the busy time of the holidays overshadow the profoundness of what we are celebrating. That this Baby who was born was born to die, to defeat death, and to bring LIFE.

So Much To Do...

...well, you know how that phrase goes. And at this time of year, even more so! Add on to that the holidays, normal stuff of having 3 kids and running a house, a ten-year wedding anniversary... OH, and a NEW (to us) house that has a LOT of work needing to be done, and, well, you get the picture.

So, this is my PLEA. If you are local to us, WE NEED HELP!

With the help of many, we have almost finished cleaning the new house (LOTS of work, as it was in bad shape). We are now ready to start painting it (everything must be painted now to make it safe for Waverly), and then of course putting it all back together again so we can move in. We have done SO much already, but there is still lots to be done. (I confess, I may have googled HGTV once or twice looking for some sort of program or show that would help us!)

We are open to any and all help! Painting, cleaning, sanding, plastering, yardwork, carpeting, packing, moving, etc. If you have a skill of some sort, I imagine we could probably utilize it in some way. Of course, if you are busy like everyone else this time of year, we will gladly accept donations to hire to get the things done! :)

To those who have already helped us, THANK YOU. We can't wait to be in the house and to be settled and to have a place that better accommodates our family and Waverly!
