Merry CHRISTMAS! Past and PRESENT!

2 more blessings added in 2004!

3 blessings added in 2005!
& 2006 Card

Another blessing added in 2007!

2008 

2009

AND YET ANOTHER Blessing in 2010!

Looking back at these cards shows JUST HOW evident CHRIST'S LOVE is!
Brings tears to my eyes and WARMTH to my heart!

THE WARMTH of the GIFTS ONLY HE could give!
The Gift of adoption.
The adoption of US as HIS children..
The Gifts of our children-entrusted to us as their earthly parents.
SO MUCH to take in isn't it?

Wishing you a BLESSED & MERRY CHRISTMAS! 

AND, If you are looking for a way to display your CHRISTmas cards this year, here is what we did with ours!
Didn't cost a dime and I LOVE IT!
The letters are in a basket at the bottom of the tree, just realized it could pass for a stem!
Despite The Captains opposition, I keep the pictures up until NEXT CHRISTmas!
I LOVE looking at them ALL YEAR!

I too love looking back through our family photos over the years. The Lord has definitely grown us--not just in number but in Himself as well.
