Advent Christmas Decor

Christmas Tree

Back in November one of the Pastor’s at my church (Mars Hill Church in Albuquerque) approached me about heading up the Advent decor.  I was honored, and humbled, and a little nervous too.  I wasn’t sure if I would be able to do it because I was having surgery and didn’t know how it would go.  Greg and I prayed, and we felt like God said WE should do it.  So we said yes, with the understanding that I might be limited in what I could do.  God graciously provided help in the form of interns (you guys are bomb!)

Kids are funny!

Oh man.  Ever since Asa has started talking it has been seriously entertaining, but I have to say, it has become even more so as his vocabulary has increased and he has begun to form sentences.  The funniest things (I think anyway) are when he randomly repeats something to me that I have been saying to him.  Two examples: A.

The best part of Easter though?  Jesus.  It’s all about Jesus.  It’s the love story.  It’s the romance.  The intrigue.  The victory. Christ, the God-man, came to earth.  He lived a perfect life.  A life without sin.  He never lied. He never gossiped. He never wanted something someone else had. He IS perfect. How could He not be? He’s God. He died a horrifying death.  He was lashed.  He was […]
