Psalm 46:10

An idea that we had years ago....Sierra painted scripture on signs so that we could hang them all throughout our woods. They are still there....& the painted words of God are still just as new as the day she painted them! We always love walking our trails & finding them. This pic says it all, doesn't it?!

"Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!"

Looking at Jesus!

Lots of Christmas stories being read around here. Our new favorite....
Song of the Stars
A Christmas Story
by Sally Lloyd -Jones

Such a beautiful book with words that pour into your heart!
"And high above a single star set
in the highest of heavens shone
out brighter than all the others
and poured down silver onto
the little shed....
A Light to light up the whole world!"

"Heaven's Son sleeping under the stars that He made."

Child-like Wonder

In John 8:12 Jesus spoke saying " I am the Light of the world, whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but have the Light of Life."

Full House, Full hearts, Full of Christmas! What can I say?! The last few months have been a good kind of crazy around here. And now.....that Christmas is here, my favorite time of the year, my heart overflows with the goodness of God, His faithfulness to us, His gift that He gave for all mankind! To be able to share that this year has my heart leaping for joy...
One of our family traditions over the years has been to read advent devotions in the evenings & to have an advent calendar in which I come up with fun activities that we can do as family. This has been so much fun this year! Here is a little peek at some of the Christmas fun!
The kids had so much fun decorating their cars for the drive in movie. Made out of big cardboard boxes & just so you know Sierra may or may not have been persuaded to get in a box. I think she really enjoyed helping decorate the cars. I even set up a concession stand with snacks & drinks & gave the kids their own envelope of play money to use at the concession stand. This was so much fun! Thinking back on it I'm not sure who enjoyed it more...the kids or me. The movie of choice was one of our faves...The Legend of the Candy Cane.

Snowman Doors...yep, all throughout the house. We got started & just couldn't stop!

We have been counting down the days to celebrate Jesus' birthday!
Luke 2:10 And the angel said to them "Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Glory to God in the Highest!!

You Were Made To Shine!

I find it hard to believe that another year has passed & she is now 12! This little girl of mine who has brought so many smiles to my days. This one who I used to call "my little honey sunshine." Still would if she would let me. :) Beautiful in God's eyes & mine! My prayer for this girl is that she will always "burn bright!"

Winning Shot

A few months ago Sierra was out riding her horse when a neighbor came over to ask me if she could take some pics for a photography class she was taking at college. Her assignment was to capture the light from a sunset behind a subject, Sierra being her subject. Needless to say she got it! I found out later that she scored an A & the above photo was used as an example to the class to show the other students exactly what the professor wanted them to capture. The second one shows just how fast the light changes a shot.
