Happy Birthday to my one and only

This Guy right here stole my heart 16 years ago, which means I’ve been lucky enough to celebrate him 16 times.  Happy Birthday to the love of my life & the best Dad in the world.  I LOVE doing life with you.  God has been so faithful and I love serving the Lord with you by my side XOXOX


Our baby girl is nine | Isabella Nevaeh

Nine years ago our lives changed forever.
This little girl is a leader, a sister, a believer, a daughter, a friend, kind, loving, caring and many more words to describe her.  We are so thankful for her.  Everything she has taught us.  Today, we celebrate her, her gift of faith, and the the best gift of all. Jesus.

Happy Birthday & Merry Christmas XO

The true reason for the season.  Celebrating Christ’s birth.

Luke 2:1-20

The Birth of Jesus
In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.  (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.)  And everyone went to their own town to register.

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.  He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.  While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born,  and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.  An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.  This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.  When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.  But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.  The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

My heart.

So thankful for my family this Christmas, excited to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas and such a great opportunity and ages to really explain why we celebrate Christmas.  This year I’m going to choose joy, live everyday as if it were my last, live in the moment, be in the moment, always forgive, be thankful & always trust God.
