we got a christmas gift
a little early this year.
our little L started crawling.
and he hasn't stopped since.
B and i are in absolute awe
and so is L's PT.
L has never started doing something new
and progressed this quickly.
and until now,
he has preferred to go backwards first.
but not this time.
God is so good.
all the time.
He is so, so good.
and while we have been praying that he walk by christmas,
we will oh-so-gladly
take and be grateful for this gift.
and besides, K recently told me
that God spoke to her heart
and said that He hadn't decided
if L would walk by christmas or not.
and here is a photo of some snow
(or just dust floating
through the sun shining in our house)
i will be taking a blogging break for all of next week
but will be celebrating my blogoversary on january 2nd!
have a very merry christmas
and may you celebrate the greatest gift
we could ever be given.
a baby born in a manger
who would save us all.
Then Herod called the Magi secretly and
found out from them the exact time the star had appeared.
He sent them to Bethlehem and said,
“Go and search carefully for the child.
As soon as you find him, report to me,
so that I too may go and worship him.”
After they had heard the king, they went on their way,
and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them
until it stopped over the place where the child was.
When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.
On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary,
and they bowed down and worshiped him.
Then they opened their treasures and presented him
with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
