You all amaze me so! Thank you so much for
your love, encouragement, prayers, and support!
Your sweet comments always touch my heart!
We all love a fire's glow, and how it warms
us through and through...
And we love candlelight that gives a room warmth,
and makes everything it casts it's glow on look so lovely...
But oh the warmth of the love of family at Christmas time!
Here is Sam and her family! We took this photo
out in the woods of north Florida where we stopped
on our way home to tend to the hunting area.
I can't tell you how wonderful it is to have them back here!
We have had lots of time together already, and I am so
looking forward to Christmas with all of our girls on Saturday!
I'll be posting a photo our four girls as soon as I can get it
from Birdy. It was taken on her I- phone. Can't wait to show
Here Emily just had to get up into the Cozy Condo
and do some sweeping! Too cute!
And coming out...
May will be here before you know it, and little
Miss Em' will become a big sister!
We are all so excited! Everyone thinks it's a boy!
That would be a first in the Stewart family
and Grandpa will be beside himself if God blesses us
with a little grandy boy!! Of course, he will be
delighted with a sweet, cuddly girl, too!!
God is continually teaching me about the significance of family.
The family is one of only two ordained by God institutions...
the other being the church.
So, from that alone we can know that family is of the utmost
importance to Him!
As our family gathers to celebrate the glory of the birth
of our Lord,
we gather as a bunch of imperfect people, that sometimes
take each other for granted, hurt one another's feelings,
make mistakes we're sorry for, are at different places
in our walks with God, but as a FAMILY...
a family ordained by God, for His purposes, that love
each other through it all, and that hopefully, hopefully...
will make God smile sometimes,
and fulfill at least some of the purposes He has put us here for!
The love and warmth of family...
the hardest hurts,
the deepest love,
the greatest blessings.
May you feel the wonderful joy and
warmth of family this Christmas...
and know the everlasting JOY
of being part of the
FAMILY OF GOD.
Merry Christmas to you all!
I praise You, Lord, for my friends, and thank You
for loving us so much that you sent your Son, Jesus,
at just the right time, to save us each from our sin!
Sending love and snuggly hugs!!
